Since I installed WIndows XP Service Pack 2 I observe crash of the browser (3 in
4 days) whereas nothing else changed on my computer and the rate before was more
something like once in several weeks...
Unfortunately only one crash triggered talkback, the other triggered the
Microsoft crash reporting stuff.
I guess this bug report won't help to much, but it is the best I can do right
now - I'll add talkback incident as sson as I can get more.

It was the one that trigered the talkback - the other 2 corresponded more
exactly to application hang (for > 20min) and I had to kill them which prompted
a crash report from Microsoft (but no talkback)

I will add more to this bug when they happen to see if there is any common point
between them.

[BTW, note that the admin in my Uni have just recommended to not install SP2
yet, pending further tests - maybe it cause some incompatibility with some of
our network...]

OK, after a few more weeks I do not have crashes anymore, thus it may just have
been purely coincidental - most probably no link with SP2 install and just some
'normal' rarely triggered crash that just happened to occur in a row...

Note that since then I've upgraded to Firefox PR. 

I won't close the bug because I really had a crash, and it may turn up in other
trackback incident, but from my side it seems to have no relationship with SP2
install, thus I'm tempted to remove that from the summary, it could be
misleading... Should I do that?

I have still the Problem you discribed. I'm not a Programmer but i think it
depends on Scripts or Appelets on Page. For Example a crash for sure ist the
Real-Time-Pushlist vom http://www.ariva.de, but it crashed in ebay also.
