New-Tab thumbnail screen freezes after deleting last thumbnail?
Deletion of the last of the offered thumbnail choices can freeze that tab. Happens when using the new New Tab feature on Firefox v13.0.1, installed 6/17/12. I can still delete the entire New Tab screen and then start another.
I am running Win XP+SP3 on an Acer Inspire One netbook with a 1024x600 screen. This seems to happen every time I try it. This morning's update informed me about this new feature, so I was trying it out.
Click New-Tab and the 9 thumbnails almost fit the screen (pic1). I scroll down to see the bottom of the screen (pic2). I click the [X] to delete the bottom right thumbnail. The thumbnail images shift up a little, then the screen image freezes (pic3).
I have screen images for pic1-pic3, if they might be useful.

Start Firefox in Diagnose Firefox issues using Troubleshoot Mode to check if one of the extensions or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes).
- Don't make any changes on the Safe mode start window.
