    Try running it in safe mode, without any extensions loaded, and see if you still have the same problem.

    When was the last time you ran a full anti-virus scan?

    Some people, when confronted with a problem, think "I know, I'll use regular expressions." Now they have two problems.

    It's been randomly killing itself occasionally on Ubuntu 5.10 (Fx 1.0.8).

    Pretty annoying when it happens, though I haven't tested to see what's causing it.

    No Gmail stuff. I have (as well as DOM inspector and language pack)
    • SubmitToTab
    • JS debugger
    • Web developer
    • All-in-One gestures
    • Linkification
    • Live HTTP Headers
    • miniT
    • Tabbrowser preferences
    • Forecastfox
    • Add bookmark here
    • Bookmark all
    • Flat bookmark editing
    • Locate in bookmark folders
    • Enhanced bookmark search
    • Bookmark backup
    • Spiderzilla
    • Furl tools
    • Anti-paranoia
    • HTML validator

    Basically, too damn many, especially when I'm not using half those bookmark ones.

    I don't suppose that helps much.

    If it's relevant, anti-paranoia doesn't ever seem to have worked for me at all. The menu items are there but don't trigger the dialogue boxes or anything. I installed it quite recently. Maybe it's out to get me.

    Cos they're good.

    And in a few cases, because I tried them out and haven't bothered deleting them.

    Anyway, any obvious overlaps? Anyone? I suppose this might just be one screwy extension.
