I had this problem with Mozilla as well.  Mozilla 1.2.1 works fine in 
the admin interface, though and there is a bug open with Mozilla to fix 
this problem which was introduced in 1.3, there's even a test patch 
available if you want to try downloading source, patching, and testing 
yourself (I had unrelated problems getting it to compile, heh).  I ended 
up with two copies of mozilla installed and use 1.2.1 for interchange.

This is the bug that I opened specifically related to Mozilla crashing 
on IC (there are instructions in the bug for how to reproduce the crash 
in the IC demo):

The bug was resolved as a duplicate of this bug:

BTW, if anyone can figure out how to re-code the admin pages to get 
around this bug I'd really appreciate hearing about it.  I know it's 
really a Mozilla problem, but they seem to be slow in fixing it and I 
would really like to not have to run two different versions of Mozilla 
in order to be able to work in the admin area of IC.
