Can you get a Talkback ID for an Apple crashlog for the crash? http://kb.mozillazine.org/Talkback
sorry i realised that what happens is called a hang rather than a crash (application not responding), therefore i don't get any talkback ID...

mendoza: Which feed were you opening? I opened a few feeds and was able to get the hang you describe, but not consistently. I am going to attach one screenshot that I was able to capture where I hung and was not able to do anything in Firefox, had to force quit the browser. I was using an RSS feed that had 40+ tabs.
Created attachment 242287 [details] apple crash report Here is a crash report for the crash. I have also figured out exactly how to reproduce. 1. Open a live bookmark and hover over one of the articles. 2. Close the window (cmd-w) 3. Quickly release the mouse to select the article. 4. Since there is no longer a window to load the selected article, FF crashes.
After a little more testing, I realized that it doesnt need to be a live bookmark. Any bookmark inside a folder will do. Also, in FF 1.5 the window cannot be closed while a bookmark folder is open, so this bug is isolated to 2.0.
Summary: hang if close the browser window while a live bookmark is open in the bookmark toolbar → crash if close the browser window while a bookmark is open in the bookmark toolbar
Version: unspecified → 2.0 Branch
It may be possible to work around this in bookmarks code, but from that stack it looks like this is a Mac: Widget bug.
