The problem is that you have the "colorfull tabs" extension installed. That is what generates this error. Try disabling it

I guess Tab Utilities add-on also causes this problem, only with a different Stack Trace value. I'm getting this message:

ASSERT: Giving up waiting for the tab closing animation to finish (bug 608589)

Stack Trace: 0:([object XULElement],[object XULElement],5512)

A work around is goto about:config

toggle the following line so that it is set to false.

browser.tabs.animate

I got the TabGroups manager 2011.22.01 extension, and sometimes when I close the last tab from a group the same error pops.
