Description Josh Bressers 2006-01-27 21:01:20 UTC
Very long topic history.dat DoS

Mozilla will log various bits of URL information into the history.dat
file. A VERY long title logged to the history.dat file will cause
Mozilla to startup very slows and eat a great deal of memory.  This
behavior will persist until the history information is cleared.
