midori is crashing for me a lot with errors like this in dmesg:

traps: midori[15383] trap int3 ip:7fce4402138d sp:7fff7a26d530 error:0

Does anyone know anything about "traps" errors or anything that might give me some kind of clue on where to look in my system to fix this?

A trap is an exception.
An exception can be generated by an interrupt or miscellaneous errors / privilege violations.
When the exception occurs, the code of a particular handler is executed.

An exception can also be generated intentionally by an instruction in the code.
An instruction such as : INT3
This can be used by debuggers for setting breakpoints.
