FF's history bug... Moz/SM too?

John A.-2
Does the crash-when-long-title-in-the-history-file bug in Firefox
affect Mozilla/Seamonkey as well? If so, what version(s)?

Thanks!
JA

I ran the test case and other than a long time loading on subsequent
start I saw no problems.  I did clear history after restarting.
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9a1) Gecko/20051206
SeaMonkey/1.5a

No, and it doesn't affect Firefox, either. I don't know of anybody who's
gotten it to crash. Sure, Firefox will be very slow on startup and its
CPU usage will be very high, but it doesn't crash.

There are already patches limiting the length of page titles and URIs
and making Mork allocate buffers more efficiently (that's why it's so
slow) at bug 319004 [1].

It did crash here on restart with Moz 1.7.12 and FF 1.5 on Windows XP
Pro.  3 GHz dual-core Intel, 2 Gb RAM.  The test case file I used is
http://edmullen.net/temp/test.html.  Nothing untoward happened while the
programs were running, only when I closed and restarted did I see the
problem.  Both pgms hung on trying to restart.  Deleting the history
file was the only cure.

Apparently, it only crashes on Windows. I dunno if there's a buffer
overflow there.

Huh. Well, it apparently sometimes crashes on Windows, but not reliably.
I don't know of it crashing at all on other OSes.

The issue is that a website can make the apps (Mozilla, Firefox &
SeaMonkey) consume large amounts of RAM (as much as the website wants).
  If you run out of memory, the app is likely to crash, regardless of OS.

I went to Ed's test site on OSX. FF froze for a while, but did not crash.

I closed and reopened. FF ran very slowly to open my start page, but did
not crash.

While it didn't crash, it certainly wasn't a good thing. ;)

Clearing history cured it, but I am not sure that an OS switch is the
only answer. ;)

No, but it's a good excuse for needling and lobbying for one's own pet
OS.  ;-)
