Translating a german word with umlauts on this website to english, let firefox crash with the windows "An error has occures" message. >>> http://dict.tu-chemnitz.de/ This happens often if firefox is already used for a few hours and has still some memory in usage and a few tabs are opened. This has been reproduced on 3 different PCs, 2 with WinXP SP2 and 1 with WinVista (without SP1). Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1. Surf a few hours and let firefox eat your pc memory :-) 2. Go to the mentioned website and translate a german word containing umlauts to english 3. If you're lucky, firefox will crash.
I report this Bug with Firefox 18.104.22.168 but it was seen really much before, maybe 22.214.171.124 or earlier... this is not a new bug/behavior.
Can you confirm this behavior?
