Description

Many sites have malicious JS code on them, some wit the purpose of crashing the
browser, others with the purpose of opening many ad windows often advertising
porn sites. It would be good if the JS engine could, before execting the script
determine that it is maliciuos and refuse to execute it it. This could be based
on a security type thing. It could be based on several levels, with the most
secure refusing to execture script that will crash the browser or cause more
then one additonal window to open or stuff like that and the last being execute
all scripts even those that will crash the browser.

Any sites that crash the browser are bugs in their own right that should be
fixed individually. In terms of allowing only specific sites to open windows,
this bug sounds like a general request similar to bug 858. So I'll close this as
a duplicate.
