When clicking on the link to on the page -- upon loading, the page has no scroll
bar even though it is apparent that more information lies below the bottom of
the browser window.  Right click on screen, reload brings the page back with a
scroll bar, but causes an invalid page fault.

Load the page by itself (not through a link) and the page has a scroll bar, but
right click/reload causes the same crash to occur.

Using Mozilla/m14 talkback release

MOZILLA caused an invalid page fault in
module GKHTML.DLL at 015f:028f97ed.

Found that any page on will cause the crash.  Tried to reproduce the
crash on other sites (including and but was unsuccessfull.
 It appears as though this phenomenon applies to pages somewhat uniquely.

Also found that will cause the crash as will

VisualC shows the following for the crashes:

"Unhandled exception error in mozilla.exe (gkhtml.dll) at location 0xC00000005:
Access violation

Writing past the bounds of an array?  Writing to unallocated memory?  An
assembly dump/trace makes it look like a call to a function pointer that does
not exist is made.  Assembly instruction "call DWORD PTR [eax+14h]"  where eax
is equal to 0x0.  Jump to location 0x14, and no instructions exist.  This seems
consistant between executions/traces.

Attempted to reload the same pages in Mozilla M14/Talkback release for Linux
(Linux 2.2.5-15 #1 Mon Apr 19 23:00:46 EDT 1999 i686 unknown).  Resulted in the
same crashes as reported before under Windows.  There were no errors in the
console window:

I don't see a crash with Linux build 2000.03.08.09.  Some bugs with similar
symptoms were recently fixed.  Can you try a current build?

Can not reproduce it with build 2000030808 on windows 2000.
Cannot reproduce using 2000030808 Win95. If the reporter (or anyone else) 
can't confirm this with a nightly on Win98 within a week, let's WORKSFORME this 

There seem to be a lot of Crash bugs logged against M14 - did something nasty 
slip in, I wonder?

Marking worksforme.  Reporter - if you get a new nightly or m14 and this still
happens, please reopen.
