this link causes that your virutal memory will be rise up 1,2 GB used Memory...

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 Firefox 0.9.2 causes VM to balloon.

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.
