Sometimes Paste doesn't work in Yahoo compose.. Software contradiction between Yahoo and Mozilla..  Same glitch more prevelent in Firefox 1.5..  Seems caused by looped switch that continually reloads Firefox after excessive use of extension buttons...   Can it be "Shorts" and/or "Leakage" between firefox extension switches and desktop icon..?  Can positives modify grounds..?
Glitches started after Yahoo modified their email accounts features, and became progressively worse as Yahoo made progressive changes...  My bet, it's from Yahoo trying to block ad-blocker..?

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1. uninstall forefox, and reload fresh...
2. Run for twenty minutes, in Yahoo mail... 
3. Problem slowly appears after 20-minutes, then hits hard...
3. Forefox seems to reload from clicking any switch, except switches that   hadn't been used...  It acts sort of like an "inverse cascade"...

Actual Results:  
Go into Yahoo email account, and play there awhile..  copying and pasting from and to Thunderbird and Firefox, back and forth...

Expected Results:  
Copy, Cut, and Paste, all fail...  and Firefox starts reloading after an attempt to shut down a secondary Firefox window...   I hink that's where the looped switch is hiding...

A little birdie is telling me that Windows 98se is somehow the culprit causing this handfull of bugs, because maybe it be W98 that is having "memory difficulties"...
Clue: When Firefox is running.. what parts of Windows Internet Explorer are actively connected to Firefox..?  
Clue-2: Has Gates intentionally put anything into W98se that messes up aftermarket browsers while loading..?  Is there "system shutdown editor, in Microsoft operating systems, that cause a crash when something is keyed that offends Gates religious christian preferences..?  
Too many times my anti-god writing crashed at the point I was typing an never before thought of nor written extremely unsolvable-paradox... 
It's even reproducable...  Has gates installed an "editor saint" in his operating systems..?  Maybe it's "Gate's Saint" that is causing those FireFox glitches...  But How do you find it, when you don't know what it is you are looking for..?  Maybe just ask Gates...

My first thought solution in assisting your tracing, and maybe even in curing this mess of glitchy trouble, would be to go to "Major Geeks", and install his W98se update pack...  
Then install a fresh FireFox1.5, and try to duplicate the problems...
I don't know if this will do anything for you.. I dumped FF in favor of Mozilla 1.7, the King of browsers...

please retest** and report back.  Also, please describe more simply with only keystrokes/what you typed and what you see on screen - it will be easier to read.

your bug report is very confusing - your build string in comment 0 indicates you are using mozilla suite and not firefox. If you are using suite, please try SM 1.1 beta http://www.mozilla.org/projects/seamonkey/releases/1.1b.html
If you are using firefox you should be on version 2.
Reporter, do you still see this problem with the latest Firefox 2? If not, can you please close this bug as WORKSFORME. Thanks!
