Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: firefox

I am running Ubuntu 10.04, up to date, 32 bits.
I tried to open a huge (10.000 x 1.200 pixels approx) Wikipedia image, and everything crashed. Nor Firefox, Gnome or anything else responded from there. Not even ctrl+alt+del, ctrl+alt+backspace, alt+F2, etc.
Only the mouse moves, but rather slowly.

This is the image:


Can you confirm if the same happens to you?
A friend of mine also confirmed the issue.

I could replicate the problem with Xfce on the same system.
I could not replicate the problem with:
-Chromium on the same system
-the same Firefox (3.6.8) under Windows
-a friend's system with Mandriva (KDE) and the same Firefox (3.6.8).
