From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.8+) Gecko/20020128
BuildID:    2002012815

For the last few days' daily builds, I have been seeing regular Mozilla crashes
when visiting and then clicking on story links.

I can repeatedly crash Mozilla 2002012815 Linux by going to and clicking on the link to the 'Attack Of The Clones
Script Review' story.

Interestingly, Mozilla does *not* crash if I right-click on the tab
and tell Mozilla to open the link in a new tab.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open mozilla
2.Go to
3.Click on a story link.  If it doesn't crash, hit back and try again.

Actual Results:  Crash.

Expected Results:  !Crash.

I have JavaScript preferences set so that popups do not display.  Aint It Cool
News is terrible about pop-up ads.

WFM 2002012806-0.9.8/WinNT4 - at least, I went to several stories from the
front page and back again without getting it to crash. Tried with unrequested
windows enabled and disabled.

Got a Talkback ID or anything to hand?

I have been using the mozilla-i686-pc-linux-gnu.tar.gz nightlies which don't
include talkback so far as I know.

I tried downloading the mozilla-i686-pc-linux-gnu-sea.tar.gz build of the same
generation and tried using it, but couldn't get a crash.

Returning to my original build that previously exhibited the crash, I get no
crashes when I try my earlier steps.

Guess this reproducibility is lower than I thought, although I have seen this
crasher on both my work and home linux systems with recent builds when visiting
Aint It Cool News.

unable to reproduce crash with 021108 mozilla linux and windows builds after
surfing around and clicking many links at Please reopen
if you can provide either a specific URL that crashes a current build or a
talkback incident ID. Thanks.
