Vulnerable: Firefox and probably versions below

Impact: DoS (perhaps Code Execution)

As Firefox 2.0 was released a few days ago...
A "new" Exploit for the old version!
The great Firefox! ;D

On Kubuntu Linux the exploits does not just kill firefox
but freezes the whole system! Probably it will also freeze
other distros!

If the URL is bigger than 4092 bytes, Firefox crashes!
The URL in the following code is 4093 bytes!

No problem on Mac OS X 10.4.8 with firefox
