User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; es-AR; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050919 Firefox/1.0.7
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; es-AR; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050919 Firefox/1.0.7

bug using 1.0.4 and 1.0.7

hardware config: XP 2000+, 1 Gb RAM
o/s: Windows XP Professional, Spanish Version, Service Pack 3 installed and all

to date.

firefox extensions installed: paste and go 0.4.1, ieview 0.84, adblock v.5 d2

- open firefox

- wait a couple minutes
- messagebox pops up: title: http://www.lanacion.com.ar
	text: El elemento que intenta agregar, ya está guardado en Mi Carpeta. 
		Para mas información, consulte la ayuda.
	(that´s spanish for: "The element you are trying to add is already stored in 
 	My Folder. Check the Help for more information"). Button: OK (DON'T CLICK ON
OK!!)	
	The firefox button in the Start Toolbar starts flashing.

	After a couple more minutes, more popups will show on top of the existing ones;
if you
	click on OK while there are a few of them, you can keep browsing, but if you
wait say ten
	minutes without clicking on OK and in the meantime keep working with other
apps, when you 
	come back to Firefox and click on OK on the popups 4 or 5 times, Firefox crashes.

You're right.
Trying again with AdBlock disabled gives no popup, therefore no crash. 
So the problem is definitely with AdBlock. Maybe it's an AdBlock Bug and 
not Firefox's? :-S

The crash might not be AdBlock's fault.  AdBlock probably just confuses the page
into showing that alert, and you'd get the same crash if the page was confused
for some other reason, or always showed the alert.

Created attachment 199379 [details]
testcase showing how meta-refresh can cause stacked alerts (must be saved as mref.html)

This testcase doesn't crash for me (even using Firefox 1.0.7 on WinXP), but I
think it does demonstrate a bug.

I haven't figured out how to reproduce the original bug, or get
http://www.lanacion.com.ar to show that alert at all.  What AdBlock filter
should I add?

Try these:

A talkback ID for the crash would be helpful. http://kb.mozillazine.org/Talkback
works for me with Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.2; en-US; rv:1.9a6pre) Gecko/20070603 Minefield/3.0a6pre ID:2007060304 [cairo] - no crash on the provided url. 

resolving as incomplete since no talkback id was provided for this bug (comment #8).
