Description

13 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050511 Firefox/1.0.4
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050511 Firefox/1.0.4

Using this simple html <img src="3.jpg" height="9999999" width="9999999">
firefox can be crashed along with the user's PC.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to http://img.soaringrabbit.com/firefoxcrash.html using firefox 1.0.4


Actual Results:  
My PC froze for around 20 seconds before crashing.
The image itself is fine, stretching it to 9999999 causes a program hang and
eventually a window BSOD (on my machine, anyway) on the 1.0 branch. The trunk
seems fine (possibly the colspan fix?).
