this link causes that your virutal memory will be rise up 1,2 GB used
maybe Thunderbird 0.72 is also vulnerable via HTML.
Are you certain this is a vuln in Firefox?
On W2K SP4 fully patched: I can verify that opening that page in

However, I get almost identical results opening the same page in IE
6sp1, and can cause excessive VM consumption by opening little.bmp
referenced in your page in MS Paint.
