I get only a simple hang and no crash. Please post a crash ID from about:crashes for this crash.
Hello Matthias, it actually hangs doesn't crash... sorry i didn't explain exactly... anyway i don't think it's just a "simple hang", its a hang that makes firefox unusable if you don't kill the app... i tried in 2 PCs, dual core 2.6 with Windows 7 (CPU Usage: 46-50%) and single core 3.2 Ubuntu 10.10 (CPU USAGE around 70%) so it's not that it hangs because it uses all CPU resources...

This is of course no major security issue. It would be only a DOS if this works on webpages. Does this also happen if you use this JS in a webpage or only at the URL bar ?
