User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:33.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/33.0
Build ID: 20141013200257

Steps to reproduce:

Building website with Django test server on localhost port 8000. While page is loading, I terminate the server with ctrl+C (on Ubuntu/Bash).

I am using Firefox 33, but noticed it before at unknown version. I'm typing this in Firefox so I can't test safe mode right now.

Fairly standard Ubuntu 14.04 install using Django 1.7 with Bash Terminal.

Actual results:

Firefox closes. There is no error. When I open it again it lets me restore tabs.

I just repeated this 4 times, Firefox crashed 3 times (page loaded the other time so I probably terminated the server too late).

(The Django server also terminates, so ctrl+C arrives at the terminal).

Expected results:

Firefox keeps running (page probably fails to load).

(This is probably a low priority problem, and I don't care too much myself, but I feel that it is a real bug so I'll report it anyway.)

I have just confirmed that this also happens in safe mode. It is not the result of an add-on.
Mark, do you have crash reports from this crash in about:crashes?  If so, can you paste those links here?

Hmm no I don't, that's empty. There's also no error while closing, but it does save session.
