User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0

When I access, firefox crashes without any error message.  This
problem existed in recent versions of Mozilla as well.  I think Mozilla 1.5 was ok.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Enter in the URL entry box.
2.  Hit return.

Actual Results:  
Firefox just disappears.  No error messages.

Expected Results:  
Shown the web page.

Vanilla version with no extensions, themes, etc.
Can you submit a talkback ID? Do you see the talkback window appear at all after
the crash? Without more details, it's hard to determine what is causing the crash.

It's quite possibly a Java issue since that page contains a Java applet.

Unfortunately, there is no talkback window.  Firefox just disappears.

Does Firefox log errors to any files?  What else can I try to help track down
the problem?
Indeed.  It's almost definately a java issue.  I can't replicate it either.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce
this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a
copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and
you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

I'm having this issue on multiple sites since Version 35.0. Sometimes it crashes after seconds, sometimes after minutes on the site. I'm using an up-to-date Archlinux.
When I disable Javascript with YesScript, nothing happens.

One of those sites is

I'm sorry, I thought the date said 2014, not 2004...
