Here are the detailed steps to reproduce the problem I am having.  I've tried it
twice and received the same results both times.  

1. Uninstall Mozilla 1.7A2, don't delete the directory
2. Install Mozilla 1.7A4 (regular install, staying in memory)
3. Go to:
4. On this page right click on the 'message boards' link and choose 'open in a
new window'
5. Go to the message boards tab
6. Choose a message and right-click open in a new tab
7. Go to this message tab
8. Right click on the tab header.  It reads 'GameFAQs: General Message List'. 
Observe that the menu doesn't appear or takes a long time to appear
9. Right click on any link.  Observe that the menu doesn't appear or takes a
long time to appear.
10.  Try to drag the mozilla window/app to a new location.  It fails.  Mozilla
has basically froze
11. Close Mozilla with Ctrl-Alt-Delete

And finally:

12.  Do the same without opening the links in new windows.  Observe Mozilla
1.7A4 works fine

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
See the details section above.

Actual Results:  
Mozilla crashed when the steps were done using tabs.  It was fine if tabs
weren't used.

Expected Results:  
It looks like opening tabs causes Mozilla 1.7A4 to crash.  Obviously that
shouldn't happen.
