To compile the current Mozilla source you also need to apply this patch as well 
as the freetype fix patch . If 
you've built Mozilla with the current tree but used some files from an 
old source tarball, it's not surprising it's crashy. New features have 
been added. It's no reason to change your version of binutils or freetype.
