--> 
no, it realy crashes.
as demo you can just extend the contexmenu with another menuitem and call alert when the menuitem gets clicked.

Could you install with talkback and get a talkback ID for the crash? http://kb.mozillazine.org/Talkback

try crashing again w/ a different build (your stack isn't very happy), or if you're willing to use a developer's build and install windbg, let us know, and we'll make arrangements (that'd be ideal).

hrm, sorry for the delay, this got lost in some shuffle. i'm working w/ people on getting builds available. hopefully they'll happen relatively soon.
Ok, you can use http://symbols.db48x.net/ as the symbol server. Unfortunately, I was sent the symbols for the 1.5 build as a seperate archive, so for the moment you have to use http://symbols.db48x.net/symbols_1_5/ as the url. The symbols are from builds dated 20060517.
Reporter, does the issue still occur in the latest supported 2.0.0.x / trunk nightlies?

(1.5.0.x is now end-of-life and the latest supported 2.0.0.x is 2.0.0.16)
