Mozilla will usually crash if an ftp URL entered in the URL field contains an invalid character, such as "<" or "*", added to the end, such as: ftp://ftp.redhat.com< ftp://ftp.redhat.com* One time out of about eight in which i tried this, the extraneous character was converted to a percent sign and number, as it does when the URL is HTTP protocol, and the browser did not crash. Using Linux trunk build 2001-10-28-06. Will attach talkback incident.
This is possibly caused by bug 107355, which was caused over the weekend, and fixed yesterday. Can you try with a more recent build? To look up a talback number, I need the incident id. There should be a talkback program, and if you run that it should have the number (starting with TB). If it still crashes with a build from today or later, then please mention that number.
on build 2001103012, no crash. I see an alert box, and the source <html><body></body></html> is displayed in the browser.
Okay, i can't get it to crash in 2001-10-30-12. (So as not to litter this bug, i will ask you a question regarding your comment about talkbacks in an e-mail.)

Marking a dupe, then, I guess. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 107355 ***
