Description

17 years ago
When I clear my documents menu in Windows 98 and I have Mozilla open 95% of the
time the properties menu locks up and I am unable to do anything in it.  When
Mozilla is closed (including quicklaunch) the taskbar properties window resumes
and closes.

Happens in 0.9.5 and has happened for as long as I can remember.

Reporter: Have you tried a fresh profile? You can manage/create profiles with
"mozilla.exe -profilemanager".

You may also wish to try a more recent build:
http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/nightly/latest/mozilla-win32-talkback.zip
(as always, be sure to delete your old Mozilla directory before installing the
new one)

I tried all of that, fresh install and new profile.  I just recently got a cable
modem and the problem has disapeared.  I used to be using dial-up.  I used a
Lucent 56k Internet-Fax modem on COM2.  Divers were old though which may have
caused an issue.
Marking WFM per reporter's comment ("the problem has disapeared").
