I have this problem now. Firefox crashes when left idle with a number of tabs open, but it's not obvious that any particular page is triggering the crash. It started after Windows installed 3 updates/patches a couple of nights ago (29th Jun).

Annoyingly these updates don't show up in the list of installed Windows updates (maybe only "major" patches are listed?) so I can't either give the updates numbers or back them off my machine to correct the problem.

Hardware: Phenom II X6, 8GB RAM, Asus M4a88t M Usb3 mtherboard OS: Windows 7 64 bit (up to date patches but not SP1) Firefox: 3.6.18
