while surfing the web or using message boards, this will happen to three times a day, Firefox will suddenly close self for no reason.

I am unable to find a pattern to this and unable to narrow it down to a specific web site

these are web sites I normally go to where I experience the crashes

i have the id numbers for some of the frashes that were picked up when firefox crashed  

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce: the web
2.surs the web some more 
3.and it crashes on me.

Actual Results:  
firefox will sometimes just randomly close and the talkback will tell me that there was a crash

Expected Results:  
what should the software have done instead? it should have not crashed (the crashes did not happen on 3rd to last verion of firefox

Also with disabled extensions and with the default theme?
Many different crash stacks, including:
- nsImageWin::DrawTile
- nsSVGLinearGradientElement::GetY2
- js_atom_sweeper
- NPSWF32.dll + 0xf4e00
and some with no stack. 
Reporter, are you overclocking your PC?

nope, no overclocking. i have tried it on the two copies of Windows XP that I have  installed

one has all the extensions I normally use and the other is completely on the default settings that Firefox comes with with no extensions

Firefox on WIN XP HE crashes VERY OFTEN, when surfing on web pages which show realtime stock quotes (realpush quotes, DHTML ? ). e.g. . It suddenly shuts down.
All talkback stacks are now lost, so this bug is pretty useless ("I surf and firefox crashes"). Reporter, if you still have this problem please file a new bug. Thanks!
