hmmm.. Firebird should be able to affect hardware like that..

can you provide more specs:
like the size of your hard drive or partition
ammount of free space of hrd drive or partition
ammount of memory (RAM) in your system
size of your swap file...


also try the new 0.7 release with a new profile, when installing follow these
instructions: http://texturizer.net/firebird/bugs.html#s1

This bug is too vague/old and should be marked as WFM or Fixed.

I have this problem as well.  After running Mozilla Firefox 1.0 for an hour or
two, the entire system locks up.  

I'm running Windows XP, SP2.  XP was upgraded from Windows 2000 ME.
