Site Crashes Firefox

Post by bob » 08/30/09, 2:57 pm

Any idea why this page crashes my Firefox? (Proceed at own risk, though I think it's clean)

I just discovered it Crashes IE and Chrome too. Chrome reports it's the QuickTime plug-in, 7.1 that's crashing in Chrome

loads fine here but I don't have QT installed so i get a prompt to install missing plugin.

I'd say its your installed version of QT that has a problem if its crashing your other browsers as well
