Firefox crashes when I Ctrl-C

I am running FireFox 3.6.16 on Windows XP. More often than is acceptable, Ctrl-C closes Firefox. I looked this up on the web and can not see a recent fix posted anywhere. supposedly a version issue caused this in 2007, but 4 years later i have this issue... what's up?

Type about:crashes in the URL bar and hit Enter.
Click the hyperlinks to bring up the Crash Report pages and copy'n'paste the URL of each of those reports into the message box here. We'll see if we can help you figure out what is causing those crashes to happen.


BTW, { Ctrl + C } is the keyboard command for Copy.

Re: Firefox crashes when I Ctrl-C

Nothing shows up recently that matches the "crashes" by pressing ctrl-c.

I copy URL's or phrases on websites, and that is when it simply closes as if i've hit Alt-F4... no error report.
