    I just tried to go to Wikipedia and FF keeps crashing after allowing temp in Requestpolicy.
    FF 3.0.15 with Noscript, Request Policy, Show IP.

    I'll try and get a capture and look.

    Looks like after this GET it dies:
    GET /images/wikimedia-button.png HTTP/1.1

    Lots of ACK FIN RST, is that a flood?
    In that case begins here:
    GET /skins-1.5/vector/images/user-icon.png?1 HTTP/1.1

    Well, I had safebrowsing disabled. I wonder if that was part of the problem?

    Thanks Pedro for the suggestion, I've sent off an email with a pcap attached.
    Hopefully I'll find out if it was user error or an issue with RP.
    I was using RP 0.5.16, he is now offering an updated version, 0.5.17 with 0.5.18 coming soon.
