Jan - so the URL does not crash if you just open it in an already open firefox window?
Severity: normal → critical
Keywords: crash
Version: unspecified → 1.9.0 Branch
I clicked a link in a Thunderbird nightly (1.9.1 branch) that pointed to
http://example.org/?foo=〈&bar=〉
and it worked fine in my Firefox nightly (trunk).
