I've stripped the html code down to pin the problematic code down but it looks like this problem is caused by multiple tags. Check out the minimal code to freeze Mozilla here: http://www.boardmod.org/stuff/mozilla_16_crash.html Note that with the stripped code, the browser is not frozen completely. All the menus and buttons won't work anymore but you can still click links on the currently loaded webpage. I know that the html code does not use 100% valid html but still, with this code it's possible to freeze the browser which may result in data lost for the user. The problem does not occure using Mozilla 1.5. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. open http://www.boardmod.org/stuff/mozilla_16_crash.html with mozilla 1.6 2. 3. Actual Results: browser freezes Expected Results: browser should display the page

The problem does not affect Mozilla 1.5 or 1.7, it only freezes Mozilla 1.6!
So in other words this has been fixed since 1.6? Marking worksforme, since it does. 1.6 is not a long-lived branch, so maintenance releases for it are not going to happen (especially since 1.7 is about to ship).
Oh ok I thought that 1.6 was long-lived branch. Never mind.
Ah, ok. Yeah, the only long-lived branches to date are 1.0, 1.4, and 1.7.
