When using my SMF powered forum of Firefox
crashes every single time, 12 so far, when attempt to attach a file to a post. 
Attaching occurs by clicking the attach button and a window opens like windows
explorer/my computer that allows me to browse to where the file is located.  It
is just like using My Computer but the window opens via Firefox.

Whenever I get to the point of opening that window Firefox immediately crashes.
 Numerous talkback reports have been automatically generated and submitted.  I
am running Windows XP Pro with Service Pack 2.  I am using Firefox 1.0 PR.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Go to
2.Either modify a post using the modify button or when creating a new post click
Additional Options
3. Click the Browse button
4. The window I described above, akin to using windows explorer/my computer, opens
5) Firefox immediately crashes.

Actual Results:  
As I said in step 5 Firefox immediately crashes.

Expected Results:  
Firefox should not have crashed and instead should have allowed me to browse to
the file I wanted so I could upload it to my posts.

Both available incidents have different stack - TB3812984X [@ 	
nsScriptSecurityManager::GetScriptPrincipal ], TB3706586Z [@ msvcrt.dll -
copy_string ].

highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce

you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
