Your latest version that I tried to install today, 12-24-06 immediately gave me problems with display. When I'd tried to click on any of the options e.g. Help, Tools, Bookmarks, History,  etc. like I normally do - just to have the program show the drop-down options for each selection, after the new installation that DID NOT HAPPEN!!!
Instead,  when I clicked on any of them, then they would freeze for a moment and there would be an “indentation”, meaning, the rectangular button for that menu selection would appear as if it was pushed-in (botton 'pressed'), but the drop down menus wouldn’t show like they normally instantly do and would only show up partially if I moved the mouse down below. 
And when I did that, I got some (what I thought were) (interlace?) problems, where instead of options to choose from a drop-down menus, there were white blank and transparent white rectangular boxes (and as you move the mouse over them, becoming semi-legible and flickering) with my personal tabs (Bookmarks Toolbars) showing through underneath. When I want to click on any of the drop-down options - I had to guess what they were - with mouse over them, I couldn't see anything or what they meant to be for.
           New Browser appeared to be very slow and "hesitant". I immediately reinstalled the previous version 2.0 back and everything returned to normal.
I thought the problem was with the skin that I used, (i-Fox Smooth 2.3.5) and I reverted it back to the default one, but with the same results. The Safe mode was never tested as I immediately reinstalled ver.2.0. 
(It would be WONDERFUL if you had like in XP's Device Manager an equivalent option to "revert/roll back the driver" - in your case the ability to return to the previous version of the FireFox.)

I use DELL Dimension 2400, with Service pack 1, 1 Gig of RAM, with on-board video card running a flat screen monitor.

Please fix this bug, as I'd be V-E--E-E-R-Y hesitant to upgrade to the next version. With any questions, please email me at alexxir@earthlink.net with a subject showing something like "Alex, this is MOZILLA Tech Support Inquiry" so that I would not delete it as a SPAM.

Thank you.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Guess to have my system and install ver. 
Weird for some themes like I-Fox are definitely causing this kind of problems (see bug 364424).

Please retest in Firefox's safe-mode to exclude extension/theme problems, with
a re-installation in a new empty folder or with a new profile.
