I am using HUD on 12.04 ubuntu and firefox is crashing for me. I have similar results as per this bug. Another thing is that I have 0 addons on firefox, so this is not caused because of the addons.

Whenever I am using firefox and accidently touch the window key, it crashes the firefox. HUD does show options related to the firefox during this time.

So my question - Is it possible to hide and disable HUD for certain applications? I don't want to disable entirely as I am using it for other apps.

You can disable HUD for Firefox by disabling the Global Menu Bar Integration add-on.
Go to Tools > Add-ons > Global Menu Bar Integration and disable it.However I think you were affected by this bug whose fix has been released in new Firefox versions.Please update your browser.
