Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open Mozilla 2. Try to open My Computer or My Documents Actual Results: explorer.exe crashed ot attempted to crash When explorer.exe attempted to crash it was caught by Fixit Utilities. I was able to prevent the crash twice but the third time I was not able to prevent it and thus had to restart explorer.exe. Unfortunately i was not able to find any info as to what module was causing the crash.
hmm...tough one to track down. Any special pages involved? Java or Flash for instance? What kinda computer do you have? Never had that happen for me on xp pro sp1

-> invalid If explorer.exe is crashing, that would indicate a problem with your system, rather than mozilla. you could try running memtest86 and CPU Stability Test to check your system out.

As far as I can tell it will do it on any page. There should be no problem with memory as I have 640MB of RAM and the only time I get near running out is when I run programs which are highly graphics intensive such as 3D modelers. The CPU is a Pentium 4 1.3GHz and all the past tests I've done on it have all had positive results.
The System specs are as follows: Dell Dimmension 8100 Pentium 4 1.3GHz 640MB RDRAM SoundBlaster Live! Value GeForce4 Ti 4200 Aproximately 33GB of HD space across two HDs a 20 GB and a 13 GB respectively WinXP Pro SP1 Note: Also all memory tests that I have done in the past have also had positive results.
