Every time I open it right now this happens, and if I want to use the browser I have to hit stop before it happens. Firefox fails and a box pops up saying: talkback.exe - No Disk There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive D:. I've also looked at the disk drive the whole time it's happening and the computer isn't trying to read anything from a disk. And like I said, the browser shuts down with the window that requests a error report for Microsoft, talking about an error has occurred and sorry for the inconvenience and stuff. This doesn't happen on any other webpage to my knowledge, and just started happening last night when I open ESPN. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. go to www.espn.com 2. 3. Actual Results: crash Expected Results: open espn.com
Try uninstalling Firefox 1.0 and installing the news 1.0.1 version and see if that makes any difference. Firefox 1.0.1/W2k WFM.
I ahev had an almost exactly similar problem. I however, do not have TalkBack installed. Rather, after the espn.com site loads, it just says "firefox.exe has encountered a serious problem and needs to close." Yada, yada. I tried uninstalling 1.0 and installing 1.0.1, and it did exactly the same thing. This really just started within the last week.

Problem started with 1.0.1. Uninstalled, reinstalled, and I'm still getting the problem. Appears to be related to the Flash ad at the top of the page. Firefox crashes when the ad reduces its size. You can cause Firefox to crash faster by clicking the X (close) sign to minimize the ad sooner.
some people that upgraded 1.0 to 1.0.1 may experience problems depending on HOW the performed the upgrade. Does the problem still occur when installing firefox in a completely emtpy folder, and possibly with a completely new profile?

-> wfm per comment 5 small incompatibilities between versions and/or extensions may cause this.
