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?

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

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
