Take a look at the file /usr/lib/firefox-1.0.6/  It has 
debugging instructions to give.  Basically, I think you can do

firefox -g

will run in your default debugger (I don't know how that's decided). 
Otherwise, you can specify the debugger with

firefox -g -d gdb

If you want to be specific about a certain mozilla binary to debug, you 
can specify it like

firefox -g firefox-bin -d ddd

Hope that helps.  I always went into the debugger thinking I was going 
to get my problems figured out.  But then reality set in that I don't 
know programming and I was just guessing at what all the odd calls were 
trying to do.
