Description

14 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030225
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6a) Gecko/20030926 Firebird/0.7+

I am running RedHat Linux 9.0 on an Athelon 1200 MHz with 512 Meg RAM. The
nightly build for 9/26 MozillaFirebird-i686-linux-gtk2+xft.tar.gz
The non gtk2-xft version does not seem to crash. There are other sites that
crash the browser but www.dishnetwork.com seems to do it most and imediatly.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Firebird
2. enter www.dishnetwork.com in the locator window 
3. press enter
4. the site starts to load and the top dish icon displays for a second and then
5. boom

Actual Results:  
Firebird crashes

Expected Results:  
Displayed the page. Mozilla 1.2 displays the page okay, as does the non gtk2-xft
version of Firebird.

The dish network page has a Flash object and when I downloaded the "Flash View"
extension the page stopped crashing!

I downloaded a new version of Flash and installed it for Mozilla. Now Firebird
does not crash and it displays Flash objects. The version of Flash I installed is:
install_flash_player_6_linux.tar.gz
It would be nice if Firebird reacted a bit more politely rather than just crashing.
