this is supposed to be fixed in latest nightly build: bug 184363. Can you try http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/nightly/latest-trunk ?
The build is too old for this to be a dup of bug 184363, which first happened after a checkin on Dec. 3rd. This is likely dup of bug 156405. A talkback ID had been fine.. Does talkback trigger? If not: Have you enabled it?
Yes, of course ;-) TB17039878Y (Hey, why it's not possible to copy the TalkbackID from the NS Quality Feedback Agent's list?)
At the moment I can reproduce it e.g. with the link "Großbritannien - Peinliches Papier" in the first block on www.sueddeutsche.de when opening it about 15 times.
I'm using Mozilla 1.3B, recently installed on Win-98. Browser crashes when I have one tab loading and I continue scroll in the other tab. This is frequens but too random to isolate easily. Sometimes it crashes when I have moved back to the loading tab. I also notice that the "m" logo, stops morphing on the load when the crash happens. So it is not an animated GIF but a real activity on the part of the browser. Could this little component be the culprit? May be something worth looking into. This bug number, 192386, was the closest to the description of my situation. Unlike the original report I get this with as few as two tabs. I am writing this in the third of three open tabs. However, I am not currently scrolling any of the others. and no tabs are loading at the moment.
does this still happen with latest 1.3 build ? http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/nightly/latest-1.3
Changed severity to normal, because the browser does not crash any more with Mozilla 1.3. Furthermore it's possible to at least "reactivate" the tab: open a new tab in this window, close this new tab => the bad tab is reset to a normal about:blank tab. But it's still not closable and it behaves not correctly, e.g. the "pondering circle" is missing when loading a page. What about the bug status?
What's up with this bug? At least the test page http://www.sueddeutsche.de has changed its layout/design (no longer use of heavy iframes) and can no longer be used as test case.
do you still crash using 1.4 ?
No, already Mozilla 1.3 did not crash anymore. Only "bad" tabs were created that could not be closed. But I no longer have a test case. Joerg
Marking WFM as per reporter comments. the tabs that could not be closed is tracked in bug 112337.
Ok, thanks. CCed there.
reopening, bug reports shouldn't be "closed".
re-resolving WFM, sorry for the spam.
