Description

11 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; pl; rv:1.8.1.4) Gecko/20070515 Firefox/2.0.0.4
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; pl; rv:1.8.1.4) Gecko/20070515 Firefox/2.0.0.4

The vulnerability (can I call this one a vulnerability?) stems
from the creation of many tabs in the same popup window. FF 2.0.0.4
fails to react properly and crashes. Code execution IS NOT possible.


Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Visit the provided website.
Actual Results:  
FF crashes.

Expected Results:  
FF does not crash.

I would not call this critical but I had no other option as 
'crashing' is placed among the critical issues. This is, however,
in no way a critical issue.
This page in the url given has the code that causes the hang:
http://sapheal.hack.pl/phun/ff2die/hack.html
It contains this:
var i =0
for (i=0;i<10000;i++)
window.open('test.html')

So this is basically the same as bug 379151.
