    Sometimes, like maybe 5% of the time, when I click on a link on an HTML page, FF minimizes itself instead of following the link. No crash, just a minimize. I can then restore FF and click the link and it follows it fine.

    Any ideas?

    I had that happen with an older version of Firefox.I fixed it by switching to Seamonkey but the latest version of Firefox has many bug fixes.Click "Help" then click "About" and see which version numberr you have.The current version is 1.5.0.7

    Well now...

    It is busted.

    Save your folders, the Firefox web site tells you how to do that.

    Uninstall and do a fresh install of Firefox! :shocked: :sad:

    Thanks, Blitz, but real men never uninstall and start over. We ferret out those bad bits and fix 'em with NDE.
