It happens quite often and may occur with blank start page and moving mouse or right click. No URL visit needed.Bojans desc probably belongs to a different issue, since this is independent of URLs and not reproducible with a specific one.

I deinstalled Mozilla 1.8a4, installed 1.7.5 instead, deinstalled Firefox 1.0, moved away personal configs to have a clean start, reinstalled, no change.More similarities to Andys desc.: The day before this Started, I changed cpu and dvd drive. Nothing else and no change in installed software.

My FireFox broke after I upgraded from version to 0.93 to 1.0. Reverting to old version didn't fix the problem - each time I'd load FireFox, all the menus and button were unresponsive and address bar inaccessible. The workaround was to load FireFox with a URL paramer, such as firefox.exe http://www.ibm.com. After I did this, the menus came back to life. Now loading FireFox without a parameter works too.
