Description

User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.9b5) Gecko/2008032620 Firefox/3.0b5
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.9b5) Gecko/2008032620 Firefox/3.0b5

When returning to an idle system with Firefox open to GMail inbox I get the debug/cancel dialog, then after pressing cancel I get notification from Vista that the process was stopped by Data Execution Prevention - incorrect use of memory.

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1.open Firefox to GMail inbox
2. let system go idle (standby)
3. return and wake up system
Actual Results:  
Firefox debug/cancel dialog is displayed, when choosing cancel Vista's DEP dialog appears.

Expected Results:  
expected to be able to refresh the page and review new emails.

I can get FF beta5 to crash consistently when browsing www.Godaddy.com. Select My Domains under the Domains nav. Kaboom! FF crashes with the debug dialog.
Sounds like bug 425499, which should be fixed now.

Does either problem also occur in a recent Firefox trunk build?

the described DEP bug is intermittent. but I can consistently crash Minefield (latest trunk) with GoDaddy.com/ Domains/ my domains.
The crash on godaddy.com is bug 429953?

apparently so, if I disable Silverlight plugin I'm able to navigate GoDaddy.com's My Domains section without crashing
