Firefox 3 Crashing?

I've tried searching on-line, but nothing has helped so I'm hoping someone hear has an answer.

My Firefox at home keep crashing.  I can't seem to find any rhyme or reason for it -- it's not certain sites, it's not the number of tabs I have open, but in the course of an hour, it will usually crash 2-3 times.  I uninstalled and reinstalled 3.0, in case something funky had happened there, but no luck.  My b/f has the same problem with his as well.

Oddly, I have 3.0 at work and have yet to encounter any issues there (and I have more add-ons at work than at home).  My b/f went back to 2.0 at work and hasn't had any issues, but one of his employees is experiencing the same crash issues with 3.0.  I run on Xp at home, and Windows 2000 at work, in case it's abrowser compatibility thing.

Is there any way to troubleshoot this or is there a history on this somewhere?  My google-fu is failing me mightily, and I much prefer Firefox to other browsers out there.
