Beginning sometime earlier today, whenever I right-click anywhere on any FF page, FF crashes! So I cannot copy/paste anything on a FF page. Anyone else having this problem - or is it just me? I have verified this is not a problem with my other apps - only occurs in FF. I send the crash report to Mozilla support each time FF crashes. I'm running FF v3.0.3 on WinXP Home. Any ideas? Thanks, Rob

Have you determined if that happens in Mozilla Safe Mode (not to be confused with Windows Safe Mode) -- http://kb.mozillazine.org/Safe_mode
What extensions do you have installed?

Okay, I have started FF in Safe Mode and the problem did not occur. Now, how do I find which add-on could be causing the problem?

Start enabling them back one by one until you figure out which one is causing the problem.

Thanks for the help! I'll be offline for about a week but will work on this in the meantime. I'll post when I can again get connected.

Start here: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Problematic_extensions . If you don't have any of those post a list and one of us might see something.

Sorry for the delay. Apparently, the problem was the Free Download Manager plugin 1.3.2. I downloaded and installed FDM v2.5 build 758 which also installs the FDM plugin 1.3.4. After that, I no longer encountered this problem. The weird thing is - why did this problem start "out-of-the-blue"? I have no clue! Anyway, all's well now. Thanks for the replies.
