Description

13 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8b2) Gecko/20050531 Firefox/1.0+
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8b2) Gecko/20050531 Firefox/1.0+

When right clicking on a "Parent" for a live bookmark, and then clicking "Open
in Tabs", All pages in the live bookmark will open without notice or warning.
Opening 25+ tabs can crash many systems as it did here.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a live bookmark with many pages
2. Click Bookmarks
3. Right click any live bookmark
4. Click open in tabs

Actual Results:  
27 tabbed windows opened and crashed my system

Expected Results:  
Given a warning message with something similar to "You are about to open 'n'
windows, Opening more than 'n' is considered unwise and may crash many systems.
Do you want to continue?"
By crash system do you mean crash firefox or crash windows?

If firefox is crashing can you provide the talkback ID.

Can you attach the bookmark that causes the crash.

http://www.penny-arcade.com/RSS.xml is the bookmark that crashed the system.

It was windows that crashed, not Firefox.

I am using Deer Park Alpha 1. This may not happen on all systems, possibly only
systems that have many of their resources used by other programs. Maybe this
should have just been a "feature request" then?
