Firefox crashes everytime under a specific situation.
It involves the save dialog, and I believe this to be an issue with DE integration and the Arch Linux build.

Here is how to reproduce the crash:
Go to save a webpage, opening the save dialog in Firefox. Use Ctrl+F to open up the search dialog. Type a name into the search bar and go to save the file. Firefox will crash.

I downloaded Firefox from the Mozilla website and compared the binary to the Arch version.
The Mozilla build did not crash because it did not integrate a file search; it just gave me a list of items inside the current directory.

Linux 4.4.1-2-ARCH
Plasma 5.5.4-1
Firefox 44.0.2-1

Link to Mozilla bug for reference, but it should not be relevant:

gedit crashes in the same way so it looks like a bug in GTK3.

Here is the konsole log:
[john@john-archlinux ~]$ gedit

The same goes for Firefox.
