Steps to reproduce:

1. Open https://www.flixbus.de. 
(2. Tap into the text input field for travel starting point)

Actual results:

Firefox for Android seemingly freezes and / or crashs. I get an Android pop up, saying "Firefox for Android does not respond. Do you want to stop it?". 

Expected results:

Even if the website contains malformed HTML or really a lot of bad javascript, Firefox should still be usable; and for example should report problems with the website to the user with an Firefox pop-up (not an Android pop-up!).
Tested on:
 - Nexus 5 (Android 6.0.1)

Firefox does indeed freeze after tapping on the travel starting point. If the user does not tap anywhere else and waits for the app to respond a drop down list is displayed where he can select a starting location.

1. Can you check if this is also happening on the latest Nightly on your device?
2. If you can reproduce the crash can you please post the Crash Report here from about:crashes.
