Since upgrading to Moz 1.2.1 some days back, each time when I go to read down
the main page on the browser simply crashes - disappears from the
desktop. Not sure what they have in the page that's doing it. Just experimented
to see if proxying through privoxy would stop it from happening - didn't. Not
that I really need to read (a suspicious site in more ways than one),
but it's been happening on a few others too, although this is where it's
absolutely repeatable.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to
2. Scroll down using v at bottom of bar through several screens' worth
3. Profit (by having paranoid conjecture removed from eyeballs)

It happens in normal, modern and pinball themes, if that means anything.

worksforme with linux trunk 20030101 and 1.2.1.

are you using a talkback build?  if so, send in the talkback report when it
crashes, and then mention the talkback ID here.
Severity: normal → critical

Not a talkback build. A Gentoo build (from source that is, using Gentoo's
defaults for a Pentium Pro).

Started happening to me too in, weird... it didn't happen before and
I visit it twice a day at least.

Reporter: Can you reproduce this bug with a recent build of Mozilla (for
example, 1.4rc3)? 

If so, then please comment again with details. 
If not, then please resolve this bug as WORKSFORME. Thanks.

Actually marking it worksforme as stated by two commenters.
/me wonders if there's a war for the hearts and minds of mozilla bug readers
going on.  This bug's site is pro-Jewish & pro-Israel, the last Browser-General
bug's site I looked at was Pro-Islam & antisemitic.  Fanatics are so tiresome.
