This bug was reported by me to Mozilla in September. It is DoS only.<https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=456727> https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=456727

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/skypher.com/SkyLined/Repro/FireFox/FireFox%203.0.1%20(Build%202008070208)%20AV-Read%5B0%5D_at_xul!JVM_MaybeShutdownLiveConnect+0xdbe0/repro.html

How about giving some credit where it's due?

Cheers,
SkyLined
