Details

(Keywords: crash)

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; WOW64; rv:50.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/50.0
Build ID: 20161104212021

Steps to reproduce:

Opened multiple tabs rapidly from one page


Actual results:

Apparently this has to do with Electrolysis - it seems to be unable to distinguish malicious activity from a user simply quickly opening multiple links. This causes the tab from which tabs are being opened to crash, and all the others to do so as well.


Expected results:

The tabs should have opened as normal, as they have in every previous Firefox release.
Do you have link of crash reports from the page about:crashes to copy?
