Also, Dan Parent from OEone noticed that typing chrome://messenger/content/messenger.xul in a tab loads mailnews into the tab! Same with Chatzilla (chrome://chatzilla/content/chatzilla.xul )."

#43 Simple Crash Instructions

The duplicate URL isn't necessary. All of my crashes have been caused by closing the original 'parent' tab pane, and attempting to run the browser using only the second 'child' tab. After closing the first tab, any change of URL in the remaining tab pane causes a crash.

Therefore the problem is not related to the content. Rather, it seems that closing the primary tab pane releases some critical data which is not duplicated in 'child' tabs, causing the browser to crash when the 'child' attempts to run without the original 'parent' present.
