I accidently inserted Alt + 0173 which crashed the browser. I asked a couple of friends to try this, they had the same problem. I think this may apply to any typing field in the browser - possibly a form manager bug. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Open Google 2.Hold down left Alt key and type 0173 on numeric keypad. 3. Actual Results: Browser crashes, all open browser windows are closed and the Windows 'Report Error' pop-up appears. This doesn't happen with 1.0.7 Expected Results: I believe Alt 0173 is just a blank character
