I am logged into dan-ball under the username "TempGuy" through my cookies.

I have about 50 tabs up. I open from my bookmarks, scroll down to the bottom, and click the comments link. Occasionally, my mouse turns into a small loading symbol after a second, and then Firefox crashes a second later, and the Windows dialog asking me whether I wish to send an error report to Microsoft pops up. The Firefox crash reporter never appears, although I am not sure if it is supposed to appear.

I have 2 GB of RAM, and the only thing currently taking up any substantial amount of RAM is Firefox at 308 KB with 50 tabs (the usual). I have not checked usage right before a crash.

My plugins are Download Statusbar, Java Quick Starter, Microsoft .NET Framework Assistant, Mouse Gestures Redox, NoScript, Nuke Anything Enhanced, and Session Manager. The only one doing anything during a crash is NoScript, which allows and forbids google's sites.

I usually standby instead of shutdown and I leave Firefox open, so maybe these crashes are more due to Windows than Firefox. A few times the tabs were lost, so I had to use the tabs of a month before. A few times the tabs were saved.

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
Maybe or maybe not relevant:
Be logged in to dan-ball. Have a bunch of tabs open.

1. Go to
2. Click on comments at the bottom.
3. Wait a few seconds.
Actual Results:  
Sometimes crashes. Sometimes doesn't. I'm not clear as to what decides the frequency. I haven't had FF crash if I open the webpage right after I open FF, but that might be just a matter of chance.

Expected Results:  
Not crash.

Default theme. Don't know the module.
Happened again, no loading symbol on mouse.
Sorry for two posts in a row, but I can now reproduce the crash reliably.

1. Open in a tab.
2. Before the applet finishes loading, navigate to another webpage in the same tab (like
3. FF will crash promptly.
