Confirmed with 061314 (M17) on Linux.  Changing severity due to crash, and
adding keyword.  This could use a more minimal testcase.

The offending URL is actually http://www.bluesnews.com/news/news.shtml
Severity: major → critical
Keywords: crash

Accessing this page via file:, or via http: at my domain works fine. Images get
loaded and everything.

bluesnews.com: Apache/1.3.9 (Unix) mod_perl/1.21 PHP/3.0.12 on Linux
my server:     Apache/1.3.9 (Unix) PHP/3.0.14 on Linux

W/9X reports this is dieing in module JS3250.dll. If thats javascript, it's
interesting, cause theres no script on this page at all. Can't create a test
case, taking a guess at component... -> Networking.
Component: Browser-General → Networking

That's funny, loading it off of my disk makes it crash.  I'll try to reduce it.

Removing the doctype makes the crash go away.  I assume this is related to the
recent landing of the strict dtd fu.

I downloaded the page with "telnet www.bluesnews.com 80" :-)

Apparently js code does some document.write() to create a <SCRIPT> paragraph
(inside another <SCRIPT>).

Note: there was a URL ad in this additional SCRIPT paragraph, I replaced it
with a mozilla banner gif in the attached testcase.

Reproduced on PC/Linux with build 2000061314. The stack traces of all these
examples seem to indicate an uncontrolled recursion:
  JS -> libraptorhtml.so -> libraptorhtmlpars.so -> libraptorhtml.so ->JS

any ideas on who should get this?
if this is doctype related, rickg should get it.
Bug 42624 (crash on www.catia.com) is a dup of this one. Can someone take a look
at that page and find the javascript there that causes this?

Maybe it would help if someone with a sufficiently new M17 build with
non-stripped libraries could take a stack trace first. That would give us more
info about what's going on.

This bug is a "futured" or "untargeted" bug which has been "resolved/works for
me". Most bugs meeting this criteria are usually somewhat out of date or working
in the current builds.

If this bug is not happening for you in a recent build (such as the Mozilla
daily build, Mozilla 0.9.3, or Netscape 6.1), please use the friendly "Mark bugs
as VERIFIED" radio button to set this bug to "VERIFIED/WORKS FOR ME"
If you reported the bug on a platform (e.g. Linux) and other contributors
reported on another platform (e.g. Mac OS), please comment that it works for you
 but do not verify it yet.

For these multi-platform bug reports, we need to verify all reported platforms
-OR- create new "still broken on platform X" bugs when you verify.
