At there is a company search in the upper left. 
Leave all the settings default on the page and type a company name in.  Firefox
(PR 1.0/.10; Mac OSX) will crach if the "change status bar text" and "disable or
replace context me..." options are diabled under the javascript settings under

1. Open Firefox (PR 1.0/.10; on Mac OSX 10.3.5)
2. Open preferences->web features->enable javascript-> advanced
3. uncheck "change status bar text"
4. uncheck "disable or replace context me..."
5. surf to
6. in dialog box under "Search for business information" enter company name,
i.e. Pepsi, Google, etc.
7. click search

Actual Results:  
Firefox crashes and wants to send feedback.

Should not crash, should open sanctioned pop-up and on background page, surf on.

I have had several issues since switching to .10 but believe that most of them
result from this.  I usually leave most of my javascript options off.

I tried this problem a dozen times before submitting it to make sure I wasn't
imagining it (crashed under the right conditions, didn't under the wrong ones).
 I turned all the options on and off in the javascript menu in turn and finally
found this combination that it consistently worked with, submitted the ticket.  

Now when I go back and try it I can't reproduce it!  I am terribly sorry for the
inconvenience, I obviously did not make up my crashes but I can no longer
reproduce the problem (did not upgrade, did not even restart).  Again please
excuse the inconvenience.
