Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.open up in firefox

Actual Results:  
It crashes the browser, not sure if it exposes to vunerabilities, but it might.

Expected Results:  
Showed page does not exist, or offline or whatever.

No messages, not sure where it's crashing because it also crashes my IE.
Works the same if I'm running server or not, it's a browser bug.
Firefox version: 1.0.5
