This might be caused by one of your extensions ? Do you see it in Safe Mode ? http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Safe+Mode

Whiteboard: [closeme 2010-10-25]
I use now Mozilla/5.0 (OS/2; U; Warp 4.5; nl-NL; rv:184.108.40.206) Gecko/20100724 Firefox/3.6.8 and I think that the answer is yes. I didn't do the above test but when I load for instance google the system hangs on something, processor load rising way up to 99,99%. Can't do a thing during that time, when I'm too nervous FF crashes hard. There is no activity on drives, nor memory. Puzzled. Having a big picture on the screen, do more with photo today, and want to start EXIF view, system crashes sometimes. Why unknown. Also bookmarks aren't read correct. With blanc system, first bookmark okay, second start bookmark doesn't start on mouse click, but the thing under the bookmark of the previous page start. Second time it does do it. Copy an address don't go, with pasting that address al kinds of character are missing, for instance the "t" in "hp://" instead of "http://". I can do this over and over again with same results.
joop, your issue sounds like something different than reporter's. Perhaps in part bookmarks related. And, do you see it in safe mode? http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Safe+Mode
