I am running the search on a Windows 2000 box with FireFox 3.5.6
Did you get a crash id as requested?

I can confirm this on Windows 2000 Pro, SP4.
FF 3.6.

Search for Buy Gold Online will crash every time. I stumbled across this looking for a resolution to my crash, my crash happens when searching google for "u224", crashes every time.
Reporter, are you still seeing this issue with Firefox 3.6.x or later in safe mode? If not, please close. These links can help you in your testing.

Belated report back, never able to produce a crash report, etc. The crash message always mentioned that a crash dump could not be created.

But, I do not think this is a Mozilla issue, OS reinstall with all apps reinstalled eliminated the problem, as well as some other quirks.. go figure.

No longer able to reproduce crash with Google search of specific strings.

Seems to have been resolved in the newer version of Firefox 3.63
Resolution: WORKSFORME → FIXED

we only use FIXED in Gecko bugs when we can point to the bug where we changed code to fix a problem. Otherwise, we use WORKSFORME.
