Description wn42 2007-10-01 11:16:07 UTC
When trying to load the page "Spezial:Beobachtungsliste" (i.e. the internationalized version of special:watchlist) on (uses MediaWiki: 1.12alpha (r26224)), Firefox crashes.

It only happens with de: wikipedia, en:, fr: and es: wikipedias seem to work fine.
It also only happens with Firefox, M$-IE and Opera are rendering the watchlist page without any problem.

It's possible that there's something wonky about the size of your watchlist or specific contents of it. If I knew your username I could look up your watchlist to check, and see if I can reproduce the issue.

Ultimately a Firefox crash is likely to be a bug in Firefox itself, but it always helps to be able to narrow down the trigger if possible.

No other info given, assuming browser issue
