    IE Crashing Bug

    I think this is a new bug - I think people might want to know it.


    In IE6, I crashed the browser by using a p:first-letter selector, and then setting a padding value. Just kills it dead.

    Select some of the main body text, and it'll crash. At least it does for me.

    Yup it crashes for me on IE 6 too, but only when I select the first line of text.

    It's fine in Mozilla FireBird.

    Yeah, it's fine in firebird and opera, but it definitely kills IE6SP1 for me

    Hi,

    I can't seem to make it crash on my system! I have IE6 and Windows xp Home.

    I've tried selecting the first line of text and other bits of text and it seems to behave very well.

    Perhaps its also specific to which version of windows you have as well.

    *sigh*

    When is MS going to give us a new IE? They've been stalling an awfully long time.
