Running an email program in Firefox with Windows7. It locked up and gave the following message about JavaScript: Exception caught Fnc: navigate Error:[Exception... "<no message>" nsresult: "0x805e0006 (<unknown>)" location: "JS frame :: chrome://saff/content/saffplg.js :: oSAPlg.navigate :: line 281" data: no]

Clicked OK and it seems to be running okay. Is there any reason for concern?
