Firefox crashes when a certain phrase is on a webpage.
Ok, Im using Firefox 3.6, and for some reason, firefox crashes every time I go to a webpage containing the phrase B i g_B a n g_T h e o r y (spaces in between are so my firefox wont crash...).
I tried searching for the phrase on internet explorer, that crashed too.
I determined that "theory" has nothing to d with the problem, and that the crash only occurs when the words "B i g_B a n g" are on the page (with no spaces or underscores...)
also, the page containing the problem phrase doesnt crash if it is in a background tab.
Any ideas whats wrong?

Do a malware check with a few malware scan programs. You need to use all programs because each detects different malware. Make sure that you update each program to get the latest version of the database.
