Build Identifier: latest firefox 3 downloaded 12/4/08 unsure of details of build

best I can do to help is as follows:
no key strokes beyond the login to required to crash, no crash file created. am also running "noScript" plugin. firefox runs fine with NoScript. Have fallen back to that level. Reproducible at will. 

other web sites seem to work however (checked 4 I use regularly because gmail was number 5 that loaded.)

I am sorry I did not write down the address of crash. But I had a time dependent task to respond to so I fell back quickly.
I down loaded FF3 yesterday and installed but it started so that I did not need to login to gmail until today. FF3 ran fine all night until I shut down and rebooted Win2000. Only difference was the login to gmail. 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce: Firefox 3, load, enter Id and passwd, hit button, directory of emails load, one gets the time to read 4 or 5 summary lines (not open just in directory) and boom! without doing anything else. I repeated it 4 times including rebooting system between first 2 and last 2 times.
Actual Results:  
Crash with box that says no crash file generated

Expected Results:  
kept working

I would have to reinstall ff3 to get more detail

can not tell if related the other win 2000 crash bug in list as it is for much older version and the detail looks different.

I am unsure of the version # download on 12/05/08 but I tried again in January and the next version worked fine so I figured it was known about and fixed ((OR)) it was a problem at Google they fixed. Anyway the problem is gone. I am now at 3.0.8 without issue - so please close it.

I love the product - you folks do good work.
