User-Agent:       Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1)
Build Identifier: 

I have an IBM T20 laptop running XP/Pro. The keyboard and screen sometimes lock 
up when scrolling using right-hand slider. The problem occurs with Firefox AND 
Mozilla, and on various web pages. I have never experienced the problem with 
any other application, including IE. The problem has been occurring ever since 
I moved from IE to Firefox, about 2 months ago. I later loaded Mozilla, and had 
the same thing happen.
I can't reproduce the problem every time, but it happens 2-5 times a day. I 
spent an hour or so going through you bug database, but I can't find anything 
that exactly matches the the symptoms. I would have expected such a problem to 
be more system than application related, but I have NEVER had this problem 
occur with any application other than Firefox or Mozilla.

When the problem occurs, the only way I can recover is to reboot the PC.

Sadly, I have had to go back to IE for the time being!


Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Move right hand slider with cursor, sometimes locks up keyboard and screen.

Actual Results:  
Sometimes locks up keyboard and screen. PC appears to continue to function, but 
I can't access it.

- I have installed the latest daily builds of Firefox on three occasions, the 
latest one being a few days ago. No change to the problem.
- I am running XP/Pro with SP2 and all the latest patches.
- I have upgraded the Thinkpad BIOS to the latest release.
- I have the latest mouse, keyboard and video drivers.

Allthough the site works OK in IE 6, in Firefox the writtng doesn't scroll over
the background picture.

Using XP Home with all upgrades.
