Maybe my problem is not related to this posted one: i have found a lot of "crash when visiting a page" reports, so i didn't want to create a new one. My FireFox 3.0 crashes randomly, and it is not reproducible. Sometimes it crashes, but then it doesn't want to stop. I open FF, and then it crashes again if i want to visit the same page. Later i can check it... Last time it was when i wanted to check a photo gallery at facebook, but it can happen with a lot of other pages. It depends on the mood of FF... It gives an error message like these:
"A command situated in a memory address refers to an other memory address, where the following command is not executable: "read"."
:S Sometimes i am absolutely unable to use FF... Every other softwares work, and i made a memory test, everything is ok... OS: Windows XP SP2.

Shall i report it as a new problem? :
Every issue needs it own bug report, Be sure that you post a crash ID in your report and that you don't have the silverlight Plugin installed which is Beta an known to crash.

The crash ID is currently in the queue for processing...
