Right-clicking the Klipper (clipboard tool) icon in KDE's taskbar tray to select
a piece of text to paste from the clipboard often causes Firefox to crash.

Reproducible: Sometimes
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Browse normally using Firefox.
2. From time to time, try opening the Klipper context menu (perhaps after
copying a few URLs to the clipboard). Eventually, Firefox crashes.
Actual Results:  
Firefox crashes around 25-50% (estimated) of the times the menu is opened under
normal use for me.

Expected Results:  
Firefox should not crash as a result of something done in a different program or

Talkback incident IDs:


KDE version: 3.2.1
Distro: SuSE Linux 9.1 Professional

This has happened to me with recent official 1.0 release candidates of Firefox.
It does not seem to happen in the Mozilla suite.
