    Hello

    I have been happily using Firefox as my main browser since the beginning
    of 2005. Suddenly I am constantly finding the program giving an illegal
    operation error message.

    I wondering if anyone can give me a lead on what is causing this. I have
    included a copy of two recent messages at the end of this posting.

    I am running Firefox Version 1.0.6 on a Compaq Armada 7400 notebook with
    192 MB RAM, 400 megahertz Intel Celeron, 2.4 GB of available hard disk
    space and using Windows 98. Apart from updating some extensions when
    prompted I have not changed anything nor added any new programs to the
    computer since the errors started.

    Any help appreciated.

    If the program runs okay in safe mode, an extension may be the culprit.
    Look for the Firefox (Safe Mode) shortcut on Windows' Start menu.

    If you use an extension that affects JavaScript, try disabling it.
