Not only does AOL load, firefox crashes. Any pages currently loading, stop
loading. Firefox needs to be closed down and reopened. Firefox will not stay up
for more than about 5 minutes.

This is a serious bug. It not only opens aol, it causes firefox to crash. This
happens at the very least every five minutes. I can't even use firefox right
now. This only started happening recently (within the past month). It never use
to happen before.
do you see this problem when using firefox 3?

WFM, Firefox 3.0.7pre 2009012304 on Linux.  The AOL popup does NOT appear
though, so I guess the page has changed.  Please reopen this bug report
if you can reproduce the problem in Firefox 3 or newer.
