Under Windows NT 4.0SP5, the Edit->Preferences widndow opens as just a frame with a 'snapshot' of whatever is under it. If you adjust the frame size then it will paint the Window & the options. If you changes what option you Are editing, i.e. From 'Appearance' to 'Appearance -> Fonts' it puts the selection boxes up, but fails to repaint the rest of the window. If you adjust on the of the edges of the frame, (for example the right hand side), then it properly paints the window again. If you change options [in the left pane] to many time, it crashes Mozilla.
Don -- I think this is a UI crash -- and so I'm going to start the ball rolling with you.
