Another way to hang FF is to open the add-on manager and click "Update add-ons"

I navigate to Gmail in FF 3.6.8 or 4.0 and log in. The site begins to load but after about 3 seconds it crashes the browser. The crash appears to be tied to the calendar sidebar widget loading, but that may just be a coincidence of the timing.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox 3.6.8. That didn't help.

I loaded Firefox in safe mode, disabled / uninstalled all the plug-ins and that didn't help.

So I installed 4.0 to see if that would fix it and it hasn't.

I am on a Dell XPS 1530 with Windows Vista.

Oh yeah, this also happens with the bookmarks sidebar.

(note: I have hundreds of bookmarks) I search the word "idea" in the location bark (with prefs set as searching for Bookmarks) and only SOME of the bookmarks with "idea" in the name come up. I type "ideas" and they all disappear, even though there IS one with the word "ideas". This happens even in Safe Mode.

When multiple windows of a program opens in Windows 7, they 'stack up' on the bottom toolbar. However, in Firefox 4 I get this 'stack effect' whenever I have multiple tabs. Is there anyway to make it so that each tab is just seen as a part of one Firefox program, so I don't have it stacking up.

I reported this through Firefox's Feedback system. I also sent Feedback to Bank of America. I should note, I, so far, have had no other problems with Bank of America and Firefox 4, beta 2. I didn't have issues when I used the non-beta version 3 of Firefox prior to updating to Firefox 4. All I ask is that the issue be examined.

Thank you!

I had been using Firefox 4 Beta 1 since it was released last month and last night updated to Beta 2. I turn on my computer this afternoon, launch Firefox and I see something very strange. The feedback button is now missing and the back button which should be a circle is oval shape(stretched vertically). I am also not seeing the AERO effect that I did just yesterday and only the title bar is opaque.
