I saw possible rendering error in the drop-down dialog on a form page, so
I saved the form as HTML to try and reproduce it.  Attempting to load the
saved HTML file crashes Mozilla.  The same page loads OK when loaded using
Communicator 4.7, and renders correctly (more or less) when viewed from web
server by both Moz 0.8 and NS 4.7.

HTML file attached.

System info:
Mozilla version 0.8
OS: Linux Mandrake 7.1

Okay, I have a stack trace, but it sure wasn't easy to figure out how to get
it...  I will attach the stack trace as a file, or (if you can search the
FullCircle database) you can look for a report that has "78576" and
"" in the description.

Okay, talkback information for this bug can be found in TB30006507Q,
TB29975468Z, TB29920459M, or TB29920412K.

Also, while trying to repeat the crash this morning, I found more information:
The form opens correctly if the "File|Open File" (with "wa_form.html" as arg) is
used, but crashes if "File|Open Web Location" (with
"file:/home/ghutchis/wa_form.html" as arg) is used to open the file.

Attempted to reproduce on Mozilla 0.9.  I was unable to reproduce the problem
(the page loaded just fine).  I tried to go to to update the bug,
and the browser crashed.  Not sure if this is related, but it's TB30163065K.

Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2 i586; en-US; rv:0.9+) Gecko/20010508
Clicking the attachment link worked fine.
I then saved it locally as a file (home/XXX/showattachament.html) and opened it
using Open Web Location - worked too. Just typing file:///home ... worked as well.
