That's a kinda weird thing that happened to a few others before, although for each with another character! Crazy. First assumed it were beta-related, but then it happened even on KM154! Am not sure if anyone found a reason or solution yet, think rather not, at least I can't remember...
Searched around and found two other threads:
Funnily, those two were germans, no idea if the system language has any influence. And one of them responded awhile later, that just as mysteriously as it had started, it had stopped again!! Out of the blue, so, still no clue... ;-)
It doesn't really "crash", does it? Or is there a "crash restore" when restarting afterwards? If I understood it right, the others described it like a normal browser shutdown.
But hard to figure it out, if it only happens on the computers of a few other people, who don't do much experimenting :-/
Perhaps related to some plugin or whatever??
Regarding URL bar history, yes, I think there's a know bug in 1.6beta that clearing doesn't work yet.
For testing you can delete the entries manually, they are visible in about:config after filtering "mru" (most recently used). Probably too many, so the better way is to shutdown the browser, open prefs.js in profile folder with notepad, and delete the MRU entries there.
The autocomplete feature can also include all history pages, not only the "typed" ones, but you probably noticed that setting already in the prefs...
