Gareth,
Please let us know what you find out about the crashing of FF 2.0, yours is
the first report I have heard.

You can try the Functional Web Accessibility Evaluator with out the
extension, it just will not test code generated by scripting.

Let us know what you think, we will have a new reporting interface for FAE
in about a month or so that will give much better feedback on design
improvements.
