Summary says it all.  My browser crashes every time I try to visit this URL. 
Visiting the google cache of the site also causes a browser crash.

Maybe is not a java problem :
I crashed with Moz 1.8a5 (TB3053706H), and I haven't got java.
But with Moz 1.8a6 this page no longer crashes..

I am having the same problem with Firefox crashing every time I visit

http://commercialappeal.com

our local newspaper.  I am relatively new to FF, and last night updateds to
1.0.4.  I am using OSX.3.9 for Mac, running a G4/466 with plenty of memory.  It
does NOT crash Safari or Internet Explorer.  I am trying to find a fix, but am
an amateur, and not sure how to report the bug.  Most of the lingo is greek to me.

I might add that the last time I tried today, not only did it crash Firefox, but
my entire system.  I ran DiskWarrior and seems ok.

Having the same problem with this and other URLs (example: cota.com).  Firefox just spontaneously closes, no crash message from Windows or Talkback.  Using Firefox 1.5 with WinXP SP2.

This problem isn't confined to Firefox.  I tried visiting a couple of these problem URLs in IE as a workaround, and they made IE crash too.  A problem with one of MS's recent Windows Updates perhaps?

Its working fine for me... No crashes...
Frank already asked confirmation with a newer build and no word from the reporter for a while...

so closing it as WFM.
