Description

11 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET CLR 1.1.4322; InfoPath.1; .NET CLR 2.0.50727)
Build Identifier: 2.0.0.11

FireFox crashes when you do the following:
1. Go to the specified URL (http://www.dxlupus.org/VIDEOS/VIDEO11_3_6_PhysicalEffectsofTreatment.aspx). This page plays a streaming video in either Windows Media Player or RealPlayer.
2. Click on any other link to go to another page
3. Click the Back button in the browser (browser crashes).

The HTML code that I use to to load the streaming video on the page is:
        <object classid="clsid:CFCDAA03-8BE4-11cf-B84B-0020AFBBCCFA" width="100%" height="240px">
			<param name="console" value="one" />
			<param name="controls" value="ImageWindow,StatusBar" />
			<param name="autostart" value="true" />
			<param name="src" value="rtsp://a61.v192330.c19233.g.vr.akamaistream.net/ondemand/7/61/19233/1/rheumin8tion.download.akamai.com/19233/video/NIH09_Gabor Illei_high.rm" />
			<embed type="audio/x-pn-realaudio-plugin" console="one" controls="ImageWindow,StatusBar" src="rtsp://a61.v192330.c19233.g.vr.akamaistream.net/ondemand/7/61/19233/1/rheumin8tion.download.akamai.com/19233/video/NIH09_Gabor Illei_high.rm" width="100%" height="240px" autostart="true" />
		</object>


Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to the specified URL (http://www.dxlupus.org/VIDEOS/VIDEO11_3_6_PhysicalEffectsofTreatment.aspx). This page plays a streaming video in either Windows Media Player or RealPlayer.
2. Click on any other link to go to another page
3. Click the Back button in the browser (browser crashes).
Actual Results:  
Browser crashes with "The memory could not be read" message.

Expected Results:  
The page with the streaming video should have reloaded.

I tried this on Windows XP and Windows Server 2003. The Windows Vista Blog has also reported this issue: http://windowsvistablog.com/blogs/windowsvista/archive/2007/04/16/windows-media-player-on-firefox.aspx
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1.11) Gecko/20071127 Firefox/2.0.0.11

Couldn't reproduce the crash. When I return to the page the movie starts again. The same result for latest trunk.
