Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: firefox-3.0

Using Kubuntu 8.10, Firefox often vanishes completely if I use the mouse
wheel to scroll the page up or down.

This seems to happen most when the page has not finished
rendering/repainting (perhaps the focus has moved onto the tab bar or
menu bar ?)

I have quite a slow video card on this laptop - it's a "ATI RV250
Mobility FireGL 9000" from 4 years ago, and it is using the slower
OpenSource drivers.
