Firefox 3 on ubuntu 7.04 crashes the X server on the following url:

http://el.wikisource.org/wiki/%CE%A3%CF%8D%CE%BD%CF%84%CE%B1%CE%B3%CE%BC%CE%B1_%CF%84%CE%B7%CF%82_%CE%95%CE%BB%CE%BB%CE%AC%CE%B4%CE%B1%CF%82

It is totally repeatable.

The last part of  the url is in greek. However eg. visiting the  home
page of the above site that also has greek characters in the url,
doesn't create a problem. There is no pausing, cpu spark or disk
thrashing.

var/log/messages , dmesg and the X log file, don't show anything.

from xdpyinfo:
name of display:    :0.0
version number:    11.0
vendor string:    The X.Org Foundation
vendor release number:    70200000
X.Org version: 7.2.0

I am pretty sure that the computer *doesn't* use a nvidia card, but I
forgot to look, and it is at work. I will confirm tomorrow.

I tried the above url with 8.04 , ff 3, and a 6600 nvidia card at home,
and there is no problem.
