Go to the URL and for any of the items listed, click on the "magnifying glass".
A new window is created, which soon disappears, and then typically the entire
browser crashes (sometimes, the browser does _not_ crash, but try it a few times).
wfm with win2k build 20011011..

Please include in all bug reports the build ID !
Can you use a talkback enabled build and poste the talkback ID of that crash ?

Here is the HTML for a "magnifying glass" link at the site:

<a href="javascript:;" 
           '* * Click screen to close * *','#FFFFFF','hug image','5');
           return document.MM_returnValue">

<img src="../graphics/icon_details.gif" 
     width="22" height="39" align="absmiddle" border="0">


That looks pretty goofy to me: the href="javascript:;" together with
a JS function on the onClick() event...

The javascript:; thingy looks familiar to some problems we were once had with
other javascript: URLs e.g., "javascript:2+2" I'll see if I can find the
original bug to see if it sheds light on this issue.

-> 0.9.7

Never found that previous JS problem.
Target Milestone: --- → mozilla0.9.7

-> 1.0.1
Target Milestone: mozilla0.9.7 → mozilla1.0.1

I'm using mozilla 1.0 on linux.
I point the browser to url logosol.com.
Website asks me to get java plugin.
I installed sun's jre/java plugin.
Now when I point mozilla to logosol.com the browser crashes.
If I remove libjavaplugin_oji140.so from /usr/local/mozilla/plugins 
and restart mozilla I can once again go to site logosol.com without 
browser crashing.

I think that on Linux it is essential in /usr/local/mozilla/plugins
to have a SYMLINK to libjavaplugin_oji140.so, not the file itself -

See http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=133795#c51

Changing target milestone to 'Future' since 'mozilla1.0.1' came and went already.
Target Milestone: mozilla1.0.1 → Future

This is a rather old bug. Reporter (Rob Lowrie), does this problem exist with a
newer build?
Severity: normal → critical
Keywords: crash, pp

Comment 19

Javascript href / onclick has recently changed. A recent Linux trunk build WFM
so I am marking such.

Please reopen if the problem can be reproduced. BTW I'm referring to the problem
that the bug was opened for, not the logosol.com thing at the bottom which
should live in its own bug.
