>Others have reported that compiling with JIT disabled fixes the issue.
Might it be an idea to alter the standard Debian package to patch
Webkit/Source/JavaScriptCore/wtf/Platform.h so that
ENABLE_CLASSIC_INTERPRETER is always set to 1? Then users encountering
crashes can set JavaScriptCoreUseJIT=0 as an environment variable to
fall back to the interpreter. This makes it much easier to verify a
crash actually is related to the JIT. (See JSGlobalData.cpp for the
code that checks JavascriptCoreUseJIT).

I had success with iceweasel 3.5 after turning off the JIT

ACK this change
