User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9) Gecko/2008052906 Firefox/3.0
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9) Gecko/2008052906 Firefox/3.0

While i type <meta http-equiv='Refresh' Content='0'; url='page.html'> Firefox 2 did redirect it to another page, now with Firefox 3 this exact code does not redirect.. it crashes and its pretty hard to close the page.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.
2.
3.
Actual Results:  
firefox crashes and does not redirect my .html to another html with the tag <meta http-equiv='Refresh' Content='0'; url='http://www.naptel.com.ve'>

Expected Results:  
redirect the page 

change the code :D
I believe this is just a syntax problem.  I don't get the behavior you're expecting (meta redirect) in either Firefox 2 or Firefox 3.  With the syntax you've provided, you are simply stuck in a redirect loop, but there is no crash apparent to me.

Try:
<meta http-equiv='Refresh' Content='0;url=http://www.naptel.com.ve'>
