the message "GLib-CRITICAL **: g_slice_set_config: assertion 'sys_page_size == 0' failed" is normal, you will have this message even if all is ok with firefox,

perhaps the bug is related to a problem with some libs in your configuration, a wrong version, a conflict with some AUR packages, you can run "ldd /usr/bin/firefox" in order to see if the correct libs are loaded,

you should see this in the console : (0x00007ffe3e1fb000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007f88b1c79000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007f88b1a75000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007f88b16f3000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007f88b13ef000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007f88b104d000)
/lib64/ (0x00007f88b1e96000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007f88b0e37000)

Indeed, this seems to be an intermittent problem, I just upgraded my packages, restarted my computer and it's working again.

I believe this ticket can be closed. Thanks!
