When visiting http://news.bbc.co.uk after having upgraded 1.2.1 to moz. 1.3,
immediately the dialog box pops up with title nVidia OpenGL driver, contents of
error say Driver Component sizes mis-match.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install 1.2.1
2.install 1.3
3.visit http://news.bbc.co.uk

Actual Results:  
Dialog box pops up. Retry does nothing. Cancel closes browser and all tabs and
windows.

Expected Results:  
loaded the bloomin' web page (as it has done) and not crash!!!!!

possible influence is the dual monitor system - two types of OpenGL drivers in
use - nVidia and ATI - 2 cards are ATI Xpert2000 (32Mb) and nVidia Riva TNT2 M64
(32Mb PCI)

Stuart - did you uninstall 1.2.1 before installing 1.3?

most previous crashes associated with the BBC site are related to Java. what
version of Java do you have (you can check by going to Help, About plugins)?

If running Java plug-in < 1.3.1, try to upgrade to Sun's JRE 1.4.1 or better
