Which version do you use? I had a similar problem with versions before 0.7. After some time (5-10 min) it was working OK, but it was faster to close it and open again...

i m using 1.2.1 which is quite new since Red Hat 9.0 I am not sure whether it's the problem of my Mozilla or it might because of the compatibility issue with other software.

Oh...I wrote the response late in the night and forgot to write that I'm using Mozilla Firebird.
Mozilla 1.2.1 with RedHat 9? When current Mozilla is 1.5? Are you sure you typed the version correctly? Please check it. I recommend you to download the newest one and try it.

I have experienced this a couple of times with 0.7 but it only happened when I also had Conquerer open on the same site.

I do have another Firedbird problem but will start another thread.

Yup, that's the info.
Try 1.5, 1.6a is an aplha, hence not stable.
Not recommended for people who aren't perfectly confortable with their browser blowing up on them occasionally
