Please try to reproduce this with a different RDP client, such as
rdesktop. If you can confirm that the problem occurs with such a
client, then that establishes that the problem is not specific to
Guacamole, but is either a bug in XRDP or something which XRDP does
not support.

If specifying "firefox" for the initial program while connecting to
XRDP causes Firefox to segfault, that suggests:

1) XRDP does indeed support specifying the initial program (it
wouldn't be running Firefox for you at all, otherwise)
2) Something is going wrong within Firefox that causes it to crash

Since it is Firefox that is crashing here, I don't think there is
anything you can do but report this upstream to the Firefox
developers. If Firefox isn't a requirement, it may be worth checking
whether you have better luck with another browser.
