mozilla crashes (xft fonts in Linux)

Posts: n/a
Whenever I go to the website mozilla will take a very long (2-3
minutes) time to load.**After*it*finally*loads,*it*will*crash*as*soon*as*I
move the cursor over the window.**This*happens*with*several*versions*of
mozilla (1.7, 1.72, 1.8a2).**But,*only*versions*with*xft*enabled.**I*have
non xft versions which do not crash.**I*am*running*xorg*6.70*and*gtk*2.44.*
Also, konqueror has no problems.**Mozilla*with*xft*also*crashes*at*random
other websites.**Anyone*have*any*ideas*why*this*happens?**Can*other*people
with mozilla xft enabled view this site?
This is a linux from scratch system.

Thanks, TP
