I am running Vista and FF3.  The websites that this error most often occurs is when I have Netvibes and Gmail open at the same time.  The error is a Windows error stating that "Firefox has crashed would you like to restart it"  Sometimes I get a DEP notification in my system tray and upon clicking it, I get Windows help telling me about DEP.  

I am running the following add-ons: Adblock Plus | Delicious Bookmarks | ForecastFox

I will continue to try and narrow down the problem and report my findings here

Reproducible: Couldn't Reproduce

Steps to Reproduce:
Please attach a stacktrace using or provide a crash ID from the Mozilla crash reporter. But you have to disable the flaash plugin in tools/addons/Plugins because flash 9 breaks the reporter and the crash reporter also can not catch a "closed by DEP". If you sent a crash reporter type about:crashes and provide the crash ID.

This has been fixed with the first update after version 3 was released.  Thanks so much for the dedication guys!

I doubt its still resolved. It crashes incessantly! However, the crashing stopped after i started using ad-block.

Sorry... not ad block... flash block... Used flashblock and the crashing stopped. Earlier it used to crash regularly. So i guess some problem with the flash loading.
Shiker: You case seems to be different and you may want to install the latest flash player (v10) which is much more stable than Flash Version9.

I've tried every version since 3.0.0. Does not work for me. It takes about 5 minutes for the first crash, and about 30 seconds after I load the web browser after that.
mvd7793: Bugzilla is not for support questions and your comment is useless for us. Did you try the Firefox safemode and if it crashes in the safemode create a stacktrace in your own, new bug report (and cc me).
