Description

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

In Mozilla Firefox, when I click on the download link on
http://www.redhat.com/fedora/, the Firefox window crashes though other windows
keep working. A similar problem is encountered when I try to access sent mails
in my gmail account. A system reboot solves the problem, but it returns after a
while. I first thought these are website specific problems, but they are not
encountered in Internet Explorer.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Visit http://www.redhat.com/fedora/
2. Click on the link 'download'.
3. (If Firefox crashes) Go back to step 1.
   (If Firefox doesn't crash) Close Firefox and restart. Repeat steps 1 and 2. 
  In case problem does not arise, reboot system and repeat steaps 1 and 2.
Actual Results:  
The window where I tried to open up the Fedora webpage closed. Other Firefox
windows continued to work though.

Expected Results:  
Should have taken me to the Fedora download page (and not crashed).

No visible error message displayed.

Can you open talkback (find the talkback.exe in the firefox program directory)
and give us the talkback ID numbers?

Which download link? The one on the top?

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.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
