Tapio, this WFM using Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; WinNT4.0; en-US; rv:1.4b)
Gecko/20030526 Mozilla Firebird/0.6

Problem might be caused by smooth scolling feature. Try disabling (if not
already done) it by 

- entering about:config in location bar
- hit <Enter>
- select the first entry in the list and hit "g" or locate
"general.smoothScroll" on your own
- right click to bring up context menu and choose "Modify"
- in the upcoming dialog change value to "false" => click [Ok] and try again.

No problems here with 20030526 build running under W2K. It works for me with
either smoothscrolling disabled or enabled.

Tapio, please download a current nightly build from
http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firebird/nightly/latest-trunk and start Firebird with
the -p option to create a new profile.

Check back with us and tell us if it works now or if it still isn't working.

No, tried with mozilla 1.2.1 and didn't freeze. I downloaded the newest trunk of
phoenix and still freezes.
I use redhat 9 and i have installed all updates from redhat update service.

Tapio, please try to reproduce this with the latest mozilla builds. Mozilla
1.2.1 is quite old already.

Comment 9

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that
bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce
this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a
copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and
you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
Thank you for your help in this matter.
