User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:11.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/11.0
Build ID: 20120312181643

Steps to reproduce:

I opened up a tab with the domain "" in it. 

Actual results:

1) After about 10-20 minutes, it would crash and show me a crash report form.
2) Sometimes, it would not show a crash report and I would have a notice saying "Firefox shut down unexpectedly."

Expected results:

I should've been able to access any page with the domain name "" without any crashes happening.

Please provide a list of crash report IDs by loading about:crashes in your browser. It's likely that the website in question is just using so much memory after a while that the browser cannot continue, but I cannot confirm my hunch until I see the crash reports.
If you continue to have this problem please work with the folks at -- we need more information to know where to even start and they can help you gather that.

I wasn't on Onverse this time. I was actually on Hotmail, but it still crashed on me. Here is the crash details:

This report also contains technical information about the state of the application when it crashed.
That information is not actually useful. What we need is for you to load about:crashes in Firefox and give us links to the crash IDs that you have submitted.
