Unclear what the problem is from the description; that URLBarBlurHandler dump 
might not be related. Leaving unconfirmed for lack of more data.

Another solaris problem. Does the solaris compiler generate bad code sometimes?

I don't think this is an editor issue.  The user's steps to reproduce don't 
mention Composer at all.

Reassign to mtchan@eng.sun.com for further triage.

I tried in Netscape 6.0 build id = 2000101301 with Intel Solaris 2.8.
1. Brought up the Nestcape 6.0.
2. File -> Open File -> Entered the file name in the Open File Dialog then
clicked Open.
3. Browser crashed with debug messages.

Hi, I found out browser crashed in most of the time after I entered a file name
and then clicked "Return" key instead clicked the "Open" button.

I am in the process of trying to reproduce this problem on my latest commercial
build.  

shirley.liu@sun.com:  Does it only happen on i386 or does it happen on Sparc
as well?  If the problem only shows up on i386, then we should leave the 
platform to PC instead of Sun. 

sfraser@netscape.com:  We have been building using gcc 2.95.5 for quite some
time now, so it won't be Solaris compiler.
