Well, unlike other posters, I am a lawyer; The Bill of Rights begin "Congress shall make no law," and it has always been held that the Bill of Rights are a purely a restriction upon government action. A cursory reading of the history surrounding the BoR, or the manner in which they have always been applied, will show that you are really missing the point.

I'd rather have my browser crash than simply hand over the keys to my entire OS.

Yes, but some pointer somewhere got screwed up, maybe stack smashed, and that's why the OS killed the process. It's just a JMP to the left while someone figures out the correct alignment and you've got an exploit for Firefox now too.

I've got a bad feeling about this.
