The green shading indicates that the field is being used to symbolize the layer. (There is currently no option to change the shading colors.) See the diagram in this help topic for more about the components of the Attributes window:
Symbology and other layer properties are utilized more in editing in ArcGIS 10 than in ArcGIS 9--for example, feature templates are based on the layer symbols. So, you see a window with the list of unique values symbols in it when you edit the contents of a field used to symbolize the layer. Fields with domains or subtypes that are not used for symbology show the regular drop-down.
Make sure you have installed ArcGIS 10 service pack 4. This is the newest and includes all the previous service pack fixes, too. Your crash is a bug that was fixed in one of the service packs.
Thank you very much for your help! I will install SP4 and see if that fixes the crashes.
