User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1.3) Gecko/20070309 Firefox/2.0.0.3
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1.3) Gecko/20070309 Firefox/2.0.0.3

I visited http://www.carnegieinstitution.org/capitalscience/ .  I then tried to copy and paste text out of the page.  This didn't work.  Reloading the page failed.  The browser had to be killed with the task manager.  (It continued to run with no window open.)  Restarting the browser on the same page resulted in nearly immediate crashes, in lack of responsiveness to clicking on links, or in browser hangs requiring a kill with the task manager.  Restarting on other pages did not result in any problem.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Browse to http://www.carnegieinstitution.org/capitalscience/
2. Click on links, try to copy and paste text, or switch to another page or tab
3. Browser does not respond properly, hangs, or crashes completely
Actual Results:  
Browser does not respond properly, hangs, or crashes completely

Expected Results:  
Browser should respond properly, not hang, and not crash at all
no crash for me with Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.2; en-US; rv:1.8.1.4) Gecko/20070509 Firefox/2.0.0.4 ID:2007050903, i can use the links, copy and paste text.

Do you crash also with a new profile and/or in Firefox Safe mode ? http://kb.mozillazine.org/Safe_Mode_(Firefox)

Do you have a Talkback ID from the Crash ?  (http://kb.mozillazine.org/Talkback)
