I am having this problem after I close a window running JAVA. Firefox seems to start leaking memory, the address bars typing is backwards and the web browser does not function any longer. I have to close the web browser and then kill firefox.exe from Task Manager. It is happening on both PC I have it installed on. I have upgraded to Firefox PR.10 and the bug is still there. I have tried multiple different JAVA plugins and such to no avail. Both systems are running XP.
The restart do not help all the time. Try: http://www.origo.hu/szex/hirdetes/20040927szupermodell.html If I am typeing it in the URL Location Box, it does not work also.
I have this problem as well when logging out of my bank's online banking. I cannot provide a link at this time. This comment to confirm that the bug exists.
In my case the status is as follows: In the "Preview Release" the text didn't go backwards anymore but the firefox process didn't die after closing the window. In "Release Candidate 2" everything seems normal, the process exited after closing the browser. Can't figure out what was causing the problem though... HTH, Olivier
Can confirm similar behaviour running latest firefox on windows XP Pro. This site was visited: http://www.thalesgroup.com/job/campus/JOB_PAGE.htm (Contains a java applet) Things started dying, and no new FF windows would open. Wierdest thing was typing www.google.com into the toolbar came out as if the text was flowing right to left, not left to right. (Hence moc.elgoog.www appeared in the URL bar). I killed all running FF and stil dead so system had to be restarted.
Is this a duple of Bug 269973 - this appears to imply much of the same stuff.
