User-Agent:       Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1) Opera 7.53  [en]
Build Identifier: Firefox 1.0PR

When creating a page in Dreamweaver MX 2004, I preview the page in Firefox. If 
Firefox is already open, FF crashes. If FF is not opened, DW causes FF to open 
and then the preview displays fine.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Close FF if open
2. Create a page in DW
3. Select File>Preview in Browser>Firefox (must be configured with FF in menu, 
easiy done, no problems with that)
4. Return to DW without closing FF
5. Make a change to the page and preview again.

Actual Results:  
FF crashed

Expected Results:  
The page in FF should have shown the changes that were made in DW.
Is it reproducible with a clean profile? Which extensions do you have installed?

No, it is not reproducible with a clean profile. I uninstalled all extensions 
and tried it again and there is no bug without the extensions so, to me, it 
appears that it is an extension problem. I will reinstall the extensions to try 
to deduce the problem.

I have reinstalled the extensions one at a time (then deleted the installed one 
after testing) and the problem does not appear again. I have reinstalled all of 
the extensions together and the problem hasn't come up again.

My appologies for this - you may close it and I will keep a watch for it again.
I will mark this as WORKSFORME.

Please reopen it if you experience the problem again.
