I am using the M18 implementation... The latest bug:

Mozilla has a problem with downloading plug-ins, especially Windows Media Player
which it doesn't have registered as a plug-in. So if you visit a music site that
that uses the Windows Media Player streaming format for audio/video, the browser
crashes but doesn't ake the OS with it. On clicking the plug-in button, a new
Dialog pops up asking me to download the plug-in from a site, with two more
buttons, OK and Cancel. Standard behaviour should be that on clicking ok, I am
taken to the Netscape site, instead, my machine freezes....

shrir: to the degree possible, please provide as much information as possible, 
including URL and steps to follow to reproduce. AV: I was able to crash the same 
way using version from 10/10 on win2k.

branch build 20001018 on windows works fine for me using this test url I have 
posted. I am marking this WFM. If you can attach a url that still shows this 
problem, then REOPEN.
