I went into bookmarks with Ctrl-B and opened a folder. I chose File...New Bookmark from the menu and got a popup error message: MS Visual C++ Runtime Error -- pure virtual function called I clicked OK and then my Mozilla windows closed. Talkback did not appear. After reboot, I took the same steps and was able to reproduce this bug. Doing a quick search, there are several similar bugs: bug 73336, bug 72016, bug 86302, bug 91326, bug 70174, bug 91782 None of those looked like exactly my situation, but maybe they are related. [Build 2001-07-28-08 on Windows NT 4]
email@example.com, what is your build ID? thanks.
Build ID 2001072808
joelt, could you try this with a more recent build please? This may clear up the problem. Also, make sure you delete your old mozilla directory before reinstalling. Thanks.
Chris, I meant to try different versions today but before doing so I decided to test a little further for repeatability. The best I can get is what *usually* makes it crash for me: 1. Press Ctrl+B or Click Bookmarks..Manage Bookmarks 2. Open Personal Toolbar Folder 3. Open a subfolder 4. Click once on the FIRST bookmark in that folder 5. Click File...New Bookmark 6. New Bookmark dialog appears, with this Error window on top: ------------------------------------------------------ (title: Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library) (image: red circle with white X) Runtime error! Program C:\Program Files\mozilla.org\Mozilla\mozilla.exe R6025 - pure virtual function call (button: OK) ------------------------------------------------------ 7. Mozilla is gone, no talkback window appears Omitting step 4, so that a folder is highlighted, has not caused a crash for me so far. Also, choosing a bookmark which is not first in its folder will not cause a crash. After either of these, repeating iterations of the above steps 1-7 will NOT cause a crash either. However, if the Manage Bookmarks window is closed and then re-opened, steps 1-7 will again be able to cause a crash. Hope this helps! [again, this is build 2001072808 on Windows NT 4; I'll try other builds once I can get the bug more repeatable]
I believe I was seeing this problem with earlier versions a few weeks ago. it stopped when I grabbed a newer build, so I never filed a bug on it.
The bug still exists in 0.9.3 and Build 2001082803 (most recent nightly as of now). I made sure to clean out my old mozilla directory each time before installing. norton, which build were you using? I'll try to reproduce it with that one.
joelt: I didn't catch your comments until today. No guarantees, but think I was on build 2001071604 when I was seeing this, and think it got a lot better for me when I switched to build 2001080603. Wish I could be of more help.

this bug and the dupe are reported against NT and I can't repro on Win98 - may actually be NT only.
switching OS to ALL since this bug has been reported on Win95 as well. I still can't reproduce however. Accepting hypotheses about why this would affect some and not all.
OS: Windows NT → All
After your remarks I I tried to narrow it down further: - I've never had it happen with the classic theme. - Using the modern theme it does not happen when I have a blank page as start page. - When I set http://www.heise.de/newsticker/ as the start page and wait until the page has fully loaded, it happens sometimes. - If I move from there to a different site (i.e. slashdot) it dies consistently (after Ctrl+B->New Bookmark, of course)
