User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050716 Firefox/1.0.6
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050716 Firefox/1.0.6

I can open the tabbed browser, do one thing (click on a link, do a search, etc.)
which will work, but anything after that is not working. the browser freezes and
has to be shut down forcibly (in the task manager). I wrote to Netcraft, but I
wanted to let you know too. Once I deinstalled Netcraft, everything worked fine. 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.open tabbbed browser
2.do something in one tab
3.try to do something in a second tab

Actual Results:  
Firefox freezes, nothing happens, even closing the windows does not really work
- the windows are gone, but Firefox is still running (seen in the task manager).
Firefox cannot be restarted unless I stop the program via the task manager.
If this is a bug in an extension, it's invalid.
