User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; Debian/1.3.3.20030317-1) Gecko/20030305 Galeon/1.3.3

When I go to that url, the browser doesn't crash immediately. It happens when
you scroll down to the footer.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. go to the url
2. scroll down so you see the end of the page
3.

Actual Results:  
the browser crashes

Expected Results:  
it should just display the page

I think I have been pinned the "bad html" to this part. When I just load this up
in the browser, it crashes. Not immediately as it does on the page when you
scroll to that part, but after a while. You have time to open a new tab, close
the old one. Try to open the file again, then it sometimes crashes.

It might be related to xft which I have. I downloaded a nightly build and it
didn't crash on the page. I thought the bug might have been fixed, but I also
downloaded a nightly build from 20030505, the same date as my gecko build was from.

wfm, XP Pro SP1 Moz 2003031808. waited for minute, scrolled up and down, let it
hang at the bottom for a while, turned around the screen twice, jumped up and
down and still it won't crash.
[yes, perhaps i should get a job ;)]

I'll check my Linux soon

If a nightly does not crash, the problem lies in something Debian did with the
build.  They typically apply a number of patches to "fix" various problems...

Please file this bug with Debian.

I found it only crashed, when the debian package mozilla-xft was installed, ie.
the same as compiled with xft-support. The bug was reported some time ago and it
seems the fault lies with libxft2.

http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=174557

The nightly binary builds I tested did not have libxft2 support. I haven't
compiled it with xft2 support myself, but as reported in the debian bug report
that crashes mozilla as well.
Odds are that this is a dup, but I'm not sure.
