Description

15 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.5b) Gecko/20030827
Build Identifier: FIREBIRD VERSIONS .7 AND .5

I first had this problem with version .5, after using it for a month or so
without any problems.  I upgraded to .7 and I still have the same problem.  I
can browse the web normally, but as soon as i type in a form box, mozilla will
crash.  I use I.E. and Opera, and they dont have this problem.  I'm not in the
habit of downloading spyware or random software from web sites, and I'm positive
I havent downloaded a virus.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open mozilla
2. Type a character in a form box on any web page
3. Mozilla crashes

Actual Results:  
mozilla froze, when i'd try to close it, I'd get the 'This program is not
responding' message box, and would end program.  Afterwards, I could open
mozilla up and browse like normal, but as soon as I type in a form box, it would
crash again.

Expected Results:  
It should have NOT crashed

I'm using a WinXP Pro installation, default theme for Mozilla.  Nothing special.

I havent had this problem on any other computer I've used, so I dont know if the
problem is with mozilla, or with my computer.  I honestly dont know any way for
you guys to test this problem out.

Sounds very much like a horked profile. Please create a new profile (see
http://texturizer.net/firebird/faq.html#profilemanager on how to do that) and
try again. If it doesn't work. Try a current nightly build.
