Since you are on a vmware test install, can you remove the FireFox3 PBI, 
and install it via ports? If those sites still crash on the port install 
of FF, then we know its an issue with FF itself. It they work, but the 
PBI FF crashes, then its a PBI program and I can look further into it :)

Those are a bit harder to debug, since its running wine, and wine has 
its whole set of problems :)

I can connect via samba here, if you enter your system name, or IP 
manually does it bring it up?

This i would suspect is more from using vmware. I know that effects will 
not work in VMware, and the resolution may have some weird hiccups as 
well :)

This sounds like a bug in the folderview, not using our "preview" plugin 
properly. We'll look into it, and see if it can be fixed.
