Firefox crashes when replying in Gmail

this problem started this morning. When I try to reply to emails in Gmail the whole browser crashes. I am running Firefox 2.0.0.1 on Windows XP SP2. I use Adblock and NoScript extensions but disabling these seems to make no difference. Things work fine in IE 6.0 but who wants to use IE?



I also had the same problem when I tried to make this post using Firefox. It seems to be reliably brought on by hitting the backspace key.



Error Console in FF gives the following:



Warning: Error in parsing value for property 'cursor'. Declaration dropped.
Source File: http://mail.google.c...p...pgpk&auto=1
Line: 2

<html><head><meta http-equiv=Content-Type content="text/html; charset=UTF-8"><script></script></head><script>try {var loaded=true;if (top.js.init) {top.js._GP(window);}} catch(e) {}</script></html>and the occasional Warning: Unknown property 'text-overflow'. Declaration dropped.

Any ideas?

TIA

Due to the overwhelming number of responses :blink: I decided to follow my own advice (see below). It seems that Firefox had become corrupted and a uninstall and reinstall has fixed it. Hope this helps someone else with similar problems.
