My firefox randomly hides the DOM or everything on the page for some reason...

Sometimes to a particular websites sometimes it shows the content when I click on a link opens a new window/tab but the original window/tab hides all the content.

What could this be?

What particular websites? And which OS? (And please associate your accounts at so you can edit this question on Super User, to come up with a better title? Thanks!) – Arjan Jan 6 '10 at 17:05

I've seen this as well. There are two reasons for this:

  1. A bug in firefox. Upgrade to 3.5.7.
  2. Windows is running out of memory.

1. I did update firefox to 3.5.7; 2. I could have a single tab (not including the opened one). --- still the same problem – Val Jan 6 '10 at 16:45

Did you try turning on Firefox in the safe mode ? See if that makes the problem go away :)
