I do wonder if it's Flash or Java.  I'm watching:

            http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=224427

I run Mozilla on GNOME; starting it in a terminal ["mozilla &"]
(instead of a gnome launcher) yields "invalid cast from
Gtk-SuperWin to Gtk-SuperWidget" or somesuch error
(I may have gotten those casts backwards).

I don't know if this is the problem you're having, or if "me too"
posts at Bugzilla would help by urging the programmers on to
greater deeds, or exacerbate the situation by creating greater
angst/hair-pulling, just wondering if this would be helpful/informative
to someone...
