I had to have 2 windows open and do it a few times, but it did crash on me eventually.

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.

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.

It may be possible to work around this in bookmarks code, but from that stack it looks like this is a Mac: Widget bug.

Please reopen this bug if it appears with a recent version of firefox in a new profile.
