Whenever I press the left arrow key, mozilla exits instantly leaving the
following error in the console window from which it was launched:

GLib-CRITICAL **: file gstrfuncs.c: line 155 (g_strconcat): assertion `string1
!= NULL' failed.

I am running Solaris 8 Generic_108528-11 on a Sun Ultra-2, 2x400MHz CPUs, 1280MB
ram with a creator graphics card in the UPA slot and a Sun 19" monitor.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. when entering text into the browser, press the left arrow instead of
backspace to non-destructively move left.

Actual Results:  
The browser session is instantly terminated, including ALL windows that are open.

Expected Results:  
The cursor should have moved left over what I had just typed.

See the error message above.  I am using the classic theme.

I set the Severity to normal, although the description for critical is more
accurate because there is a workaround, as long as I remember to use it (use
other keystrokes to navigate).
Severity: normal → critical
What locale are you running in?  Also, where did you get this build and what
toolkit is it using?

Could not confirm this using WinXP home with FF v1PR
Tried entering text into URL bar and others. No action.

I can not reproduce this on mozilla 1.8a6.
I do not have mozilla 1.6b.
