Firefox is freezing now and again, and I want to know why.
I thought I could get some debug output by starting Firefox with the
-g option, but it just comes to some kind of prompt and then stops.
How do I get debug output so I can hopefully diagnose Firefox's problems?
Here is what I currently get:
$ firefox -g GNU gdb (Ubuntu/Linaro 7.3-0ubuntu2) 7.3-2011.08 Copyright (C) 2011 Free Software Foundation, Inc.

Reading symbols from /usr/lib/firefox-7.0.1/firefox...(no debugging symbols found)...done. (gdb)
Once it reaches
(gdb), it stops, and firefox never starts.
