Windows 7 + Firefox 4 = Black Screen?

Over the past couple of days Firefox will freak out and go completely black, black as night, Windows toolbar is still visible. Anybody else have this issue?

A quick google search lead me to support.mozilla, no actual support is given, just a posting of "Bob" having the same issue and how many others "have had" the same issue.
