Any link or button which is processed with Javascript causes firefox to hang. Its window doesn't responsing, however, after some seconds, a small window (that seems like a js-alert window) is shown. This window has 2 buttons, but there's no text in a whole window. Window's title in taskbar is just "Untitled window". If i close this window, firefox hangs again for a few seconds (the main window is having artifacts of other windows until that small window will be shown again)

In certain cases, after i kill the main window process, there is appeared the requested by link window.

I've got these bugs on Gmail options page, for example (but that trouble finding me everywhere on the net, on forums, sites, portals etc.)

I've tried to disable all the plugins, remove my ~/.mozilla, rebuilding firefox – no results.

Firefox is built on Gentoo linux OS. `emerge --info firefox` can be found here: http://pastie.org/1318950

Here are some screenshots: http://images.netbynet.ru/imgs/86fd071c0143d6977f9bce91585da346.png http://images.netbynet.ru/imgs/128419a536bec6e65a940e0546aa6741.png

--- Sorry for my english, guess there are a lot of mistakes again, right?

I am not typing this on the computer on which I experienced the problem. Consequently, the list of plug-ins noted under the list of additional system details here is incorrect. I am running Firefox 3.6.9 on all three of my computers. The netbook on which this occurred is running Windows 7 Starter. Both other computers are running Windows 7 Home Premium.

Before the latest update of my Mozilla Firefox, the Firefox Start page contained an internet address box near the top of the screen, where I could enter an internet address and hit go. It also showed the Google search box in the middle of the screen.

Now, after the Firefox update, the Start page only shows the Google search box. There is no internet address box nor an "awesome box," which according to my reading of the new features is supposed to have replaced the internet address box.
