Interesting that you mention that, because I had actually tried
turning javascript off, but the results were the same. I just double
checked this, and even when I have both javascript and java turned
off, it crashes.

Anyway, I'm not sure what the procedure is with a stable release. Does
anyone know if this can be filed as a bug? I imagine it is possibly a
security issue.

Thanks for confirming that it wasn't just me!

Kind Regards,
