That page gives me the selfsame error (look at the "bytes at CS:EIP"), with IE6SP1, under Win 98SE (98SE2ME). It's not related to KernelEX, or to Maxthon, since I don't use either. On the other hand, with IE8, under Win XP SP3, the page loads OK. :}

Thx dencorso for that quick reply! :hello:

So, it is IE6SP1 related.

They may have changed their code page recently. :(

EDIT: This link is also crashing (with no warning) IE6 in XP Professional SP3!

Confirmed, also.

That web page crashed IE 6.0 SP3 while running WinXP SP3 on my PC. The OS was not affected. The URL works properly in all my other browsers [newest builds of Firefox, Chrome + Opera].

I'm using MSHTML.DLL 6.00.2900.6003 English QFE build installed by KB982381 [MS10-035] security fix.

Probable causes [iMHO]:

1. The webmasters of that site may have server-side scripts to not allow IE 6.0 SPx or older. But crashing browsers is a sign of poor programming, there are simple javascript + css scripts to alert the user to install a newer/better browser, without crashing. ;-(

2. Maybe there's a bug or exploitable flaw in MSHTML.DLL [so far looks like all 6.00.xxxx.xxxx versions/builds are affected]. And if that's true, I hope MS is working hard to fix it [oh, I forgot (not!)... IE6 support has been terminated, they don't care ;-)].

3. Or could be a combination of both #1 + #2 above. [?]

If any1's interested to study this further, these are that web site's local scripts:

CSS:

http://www.dico-des-mots.com/style.css

JS:

http://www.dico-des-mots.com/functions.js

Nothing there that can cause a browser crash [benign scripts]. But maybe their server settings/configs are to blame (?), in which case somebody should contact their webmaster and report this bug. This web server is using Apache + PHP 4.4.9:

http://www.seoconsultants.com/tools/headers/

The only other JS scripts on that page come from Google Ads:

http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js

and this adware hit counter [which I have disabled in my HOSTS file]:

logv29.xiti.com/hit.xiti

Confirmed, also.

Thanks MDGx :) .

As reported here, I have a whole list of such sites.

On the other hand, even after disabling javascript (from inside Maxthon), the crash is still present.

Then it's either / or:

1. server side scripts [Apache htaccess/config, SSI, PHP, Cron, Zen, etc, or whatever MS server/ASP/IIS scripts they might have] in need of upgrading/changing/better programming = contact the webmaster for the site(s) you're interested to visit in the future.

2. a flaw in all 6.x.xxxx builds of MSHTML.DLL = unfortunately there is no solution, MS discontinued support for all IE 6.0 builds. :-(

Caution :

MDIE6CU.EXE (v3.4) contains version 6.00.2800.1599 (xpsp2.040919-1003) of 'mlang.dll', which exhibits the same problems reported for version 6.0.2600.0 : http://support.microsoft.com/kb/318256

The last version of 'mlang.dll' which seems okay is 6.00.2800.1106.

Joe.

PS. The broken version of 'mlang.dll' seems to come from Q886677, the okay version comes from IE 6.0 SP1, specifically : http://download.microsoft.com/download/ie6sp1/finrel/6_sp1/W98NT42KMeXP/EN-US/IE_S3.CAB

I don't think a server-side script can crash your browser.

This is probably a bug in MSHTML.dll. A rare bug because when scripts are disabled eveything should work fine. This is strange.

No crash with K-Meleon.

I get a crash on Facebook, unless I open links on a new tab (or use another browser). When scripts are disabled there is no crash (but the page doesn't appear neither because it's waiting for javascript's response).
