Default firefox segfault in windowmaker and icewm

Oddly, firefox and claws-mail both have a segmentation fault when running under icewm or windowmaker. Neither has any problems if I use kde3 or kde4. There are no other messages than 'Segmentation fault'.

Is there a way of finding out what is missing with icewm that is present with kde?

more than one firefox version installed?
kde finds one more recent or earlier installed than the other?
guessing. Probably 3 other reasons more likely than the above

If you have x11-themes/gtk-qt-engine installed, try removing it.

If none of the above work out, I'll offer a WAS (wild a$% suggestion):

First export your bookmarks. Next, close firefox.

% mv ~/.mozilla ~/.mozilla.bad

Now reopen firefox and import your bookmarks. Still getting segfaults? (It's a zero analysis, big hammer method that frequently works for me.)

What CFLAGS are you using (in /etc/make.conf usually)?
