The imported bookmarks will list OK when opening the left-hand bookmark pane, and the bookmark links all appear to work fine. The crash occurrs ONLY when attempting to access bookmarks from the Bookmark keyword at the top of the page. The behavior is very consistent; i.e., it always crashes at that point. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling from scratch. Installation was flawless. Same crash. Next I will try uninstalling and NOT importing bookmarks from Netscape and see if that fixes it. It could be a problem with something specific in my bookmarks at Netscape, or possibly the fact that in Netscape I was using my bookmark file as my home page (just a wild guess).
The specific software platform is Mac OS X 10.1.5. The bookmarks come from Netscape 7.1 for the Mac. Hardware is a Mac iBook.
I had no problems with FireFox until I installed version 1.0. The browser crashes if you attempt to open your bookmarks (they were imported from 0.9) This behaviour is constant. The program always crashes after clinking on the bookmark menu. Installing new versions of Firefox (1.1 didn't solve this problem).
Please try to reproduce this with Firefox 1.0.1 or a recent nightly build with Talkback enabled and submit your crash reports. To enable Talkback, select "Custom Install" and make sure to check the box for the Mozilla Quality Feedback agent. Thanks.
