hasn't happened to me yet, but then again I'm not running a single extension. I can tell you I'm sorry I did the last update. Firefox now takes so long to open from a cold start that I have to go make a sandwich and come back. Fortunately I don't open it often.

It won't happen for you as you are on 3.5.1 This was 3.0.11 upgrading to 3.0.12.
It seems to be related to the AdBlock or NoScript plugins trying to be updated at the same time as the main FF application, so I guess it could only happen if you had automatic updates enabled for everything in your FF settings.
The XP box refused to boot, even into safe mode, coming up with a BSOD and the "Unmountable Boot Volume" message. I did not believe that for one minute so didn't go the normal Recovery Console route. I ran the Hitachi Drive Fitness Test instead, and the machine booted perfectly afterwards!

Boot issue update
I have downloaded 3.5.1 and found that the startup time increased by at least a minute.
I recall some speculation somewhere that this might have something to do with the number of temporary/garbage files you have on your system (God knows why?).
I ran CCLeaner and Free Internet Window Washer; defragmented the HDD and Registry and it now seems to be back where it was with 3.0.12

I don't think that could be the reason, I do those regularly. It's only incredibly slow from a cold start, subsequent starts are fast.

Well automatic updating of Firefox seems to loop (I didnt even know it was updating) ~ I generally jsut disable this so it doesnt eat BW , I hope ...
3.5.1 seems stable to be , dont know about the security issues ...
The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it.
