SeaMonkey 2.39 is crashing when download of file (GIF) was canceled: ... bd12160127 ... 2fe2160127

Mentioned GIF:
WARNING! 126 MB (sic!)

It should be something funny about Star Wars but it was too big so I canceled download... and then SeaMonkey crashed. Twice.
I've canceled within Download Manager (Ctrl+J). And it wasn't opening in a browser window but "save as file".

Is it me or other users have similar behavior? :-k

EDIT: And browser's cache is located on ram disk (ImDisk):

EDIT2: Safe Mode is vulnerable too: ... 2e82160127

I see sort-of similar behavior.

Not seeing crashing in my main profile but I can reproduce the crash in a clean profile.
In my main profile, after pausing that download once, if try to do anything other than resume and leave it be for the rest of the download (e.g. pause again or cancel), the download manager errors and behaves sort-of erratically for that download (and doesn't delete the .part file when download is really canceled)...

The particular download doesn't matter, testing with a massive file on my local server does same (the 25+ Mbps transfer rates there cause hangs in the download manager, but that's immaterial for this).

SeaMonkey 2.35 works fine.

Worked for me, though it was slow to load and slow to download.

I just happened to run into that yesterday.
I typically never use the browser downloader, but happened to yesterday.
I'll post crash report URLs when I get to my other computer.
FRG pointed out, Bug 1224326 - CRASH when cancel download.

Oh, & pretty sure I saw it on SeaMonkey 2.40 too, & that sucks - cause its a pretty good crasher :evilgrin:.
Fire 750, bring back 250.
