User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.8b2) Gecko/20050620 Camino/0.9a1
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.8b2) Gecko/20050620 Camino/0.9a1

Camino crashes evry time I right click a site with only a .swf (Flash) document
and selects "View source". And by the way... What is that button doing there in
swf only pages in the first place??? It should be deactivated!

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to http://198.63.211.251/share/banners/hello.swf
2. Right click the site and select "View Source"
3. Enjoy the crash.

Actual Results:  
A new tab with source:http://198.63.211.251/share/banners/hello.swf apperas and
the browser crashes/stops responding.

Expected Results:  
Nothing, you shoudn't be able to select source code from a Flash document in a
browser!

This isn't a crash; it's a hang. The same thing happens if you try to grab, say,
a disk image from a misconfigured server (one that sends it as text/plain).

You may be right that View Source shouldn't work for binary files (but then, how
is the browser supposed to know?).

Also, I get Flash's contextual menu at that URL; there's no "View Source" in it
at all.

My Camino crashes (quit) and starts TalckBack.

Lucky you!  I can never get the Flash CM anymore; see bug 192276 and bug 242906;
there are also several "crash when ctrl-clicking on Flash" bugs.

At any rate, we shouldn't be crashing when doing view-source: on a plugin (even
if we shouldn't be doing view-source on plugins in the first place!); reporter,
what is the Talkback ID of that crash?

Ahh, the old "ctrl-click handled differently than right-click" thing. Sorry; my
mistake.

Reporter, can you check with a recent nightly build and see it still crashes?
If you experience this crash again in a recent nighly build, please attach a Mac
OS X crashlog and reopen this bug.
