Quite often, after using FF for a while, FF suddenly becomes totally messed up. The page layout completely disintegrates (as if css is ignored), the window loses its shadow, and links stop working. AFAICS there is no cause of this, it just happens arbitrarily. But when it happens it can only be fixed by restarting FF. When it restarts, I get the dialog indicating that FF thinks it crashed (even though (quit and restarted FF myself). 

Reproducible: Sometimes

No steps to reproduce, just wait long enough.
Maybe extensions?
