wfm with win2k build 20020626.. i have my notepad the whole time open because i have some QA text for cut+paste... Why are you sure that this is mozilla's fault ?
Reporter (email@example.com): are you still seeing this problem with mozilla1.1 or 1.2a? If not, please resolve this bug WORKSFORME. If the problem still exists, please provide the following information: 1) does the problem occur only when mozilla is open 2) have you been doing any cutting or copying to the clipboard 3) Try creating a new profile using the profile manager, does this problem still exist with the new profile? 4) See if there are updated graphics drivers for your NVIDIA card... there have been problems with bad drivers on many NVIDIA cards 5) does any other program mysteriously disappear in the same way (a notepad replacement like metapad, for example)
->WFM due to lack of response from reporter
