This problem also occurred in FC5 and 220.127.116.11
opening FF and immediately surfing to http://del.icio.us/myschool and pressing ANY link will crash the X if i open a second Tab and surf to http://del.icio.us/myschool all goes well :-) if i change the X driver to VESA all goes well too :-) (on COMPAQ Celeron 430 + 65MB RAM + i810E 4MB RAM)
If "Xserver crash" means: screen shows random nonsense images, making all desktop unusable, then yes, I also experienced this problem many times and can provide URLs or downloaded HTML code to demonstrate the problem. I cannot even use a console session, because the video chip gets so upset that they won't even display the login prompt. The "cleanest" way to recover that I found is to force a reboot using Ctrl-Alt-Del. When the BIOS kicks in with its welcome screen, I get a clear image again, probably because the video chip is reset at this point. Is this really a Firefox problem? - Can a non-privileged process legitimately do something to the X server that causes it to fail? - Or is this actually a problem in X or even in the device driver, since it appears to occur only with i810? Anything I can do to help (limited Linux knowledge here, but programming experience on other platforms)? - I'd appreciate this highly annoying issue to be solved soon.
