No crash with Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.1; en-US; rv:1.9.3a1pre) Gecko/20090923 Minefield/3.7a1pre (.NET CLR 3.5.30729) ID:20090923052916. Please grab an offical build of firefox 3.5.3 or later from the website and try with that. Make sure to give a stacktrace if it still happens.

No crash with
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; de; rv: Gecko/20090909 SUSE/3.5.3-1.2 
from the Opensuse mozilla repository

But the site does not display properly: the page stays 'transparent' and shows whatever was displayed before in the frame, but all the menus etc are active (pop up when the mouse is over them).

Eg., I have this report open on one Tab, and the site on another.  When I change Tabs, the report is still visible as if I hadn't switched Tabs, but the functionality of (menus etc) is active: menus pop up, jpegs are displayed as the mouse enters them etc.

Note that this seems Linux/Opensuse-specific, since I don't see the problem on Windows.  Will check with Ubuntu on the same hardware later.
Version: 3.0 Branch → 3.5 Branch
The crash then does not happen in 3.5, so keep this bug for the crash, and create a new 3.5 bug on the display issue.
Version: 3.5 Branch → 3.0 Branch
