VirtualBox 3.1.0 crashes my browsers

After I upgraded to VirtualBox 3.1.0 (from 3.0.8, I guess), I have encountered a very annoying issue. Using Debian 5.0.3 inside a VirtualBox guest I tried to perform some regular updates and install some software inside the VM but at some point Mozilla Firefox crashed (suddenly closed) in my host operating system - Windows XP Pro SP3 32-bit.
This didn't happend with any other VM software or any previous VirtualBox version so it felt strange as I wasn't using any new software compared to what I used before the upgrade to v3.1.0. Then I opened Google Chrome, knowing that browser requires less resources, but when I got to a few open tabs Chrome also crashed/suddenly closed.
I have 2GB of RAM in my computer and the guest has 512MB of RAM allocated. This didn't happen today and I don't know exactly when it happened so I will attach all my logs - 4 files.
