From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC; en-US; rv:0.9.6) Gecko/20011120
BuildID:    2001112011

If one attempts to type in the URL box, the browser will crash after the first
letter is typed.  This only happens when the URL box has been cleared first--if
there is already text in it and one is simply adding more, the browser will not
crash.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open Browser
2.Clear URL Box
3.Type, well, anything.

Actual Results:  The browser crashed.

Expected Results:  Mozilla should not have crashed, but allowed me to type the
full URL.

(as always, be sure to delete your old Mozilla directory before installing the
new one)

Try to create a new profile with 'mozilla -profilemanager' and report if problem
still exists.

Patrick, did TalkBack run after your crash? If so, provide the TalkBack ID's.

If not, install MacsBug and attach the results of "how" and "sc" operations to this bug.

Clearing URL field and changing Component=URL Bar (Alex's try didn't take effect for 
some reason).
Component: Browser-General → URL Bar
No response from the reporter in over a month. Marking WFM.
