The browser crashes when resized if JavaScript similar to :

window.onresize = function(event) {
    alert('mooo');
}

is used.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Go to http://happyworm.com/temp/ffox4/resizecrash2/
2.Press OK on the original alert
3.Resize browser
Actual Results:  
Browser crashes and freezes, leaving a white screen.

Expected Results:  
Mooo! should be alerted each time the browser is resized.
OK I got carried away - mooo (not Mooo!) should be alerted each time the browser is resized. :)
It's not a Crash. The Browser Window is "opaque" (white screen). Also, if you have 2 windows open, the other one is still alive.

This issue is not limited to mac os x, I have experienced this on windows 7 64.

It seems that cmd+r/f5 seems to bring the page back. Odd issue.

Maybe the alert overlay is not resizing with the browser, and going over the entire browser space?
