IE6 browser crash on page

I have a web page that does not contain any jQuery code, but jQuery is loaded in the header.

In IE6, the page crashes the browser. Sometimes it's not the first request, but a refresh will crash it.

So far I've found two things:

  • If I take the jQuery script reference out of the header, the page does not crash.
  • If I leave jQuery in place, but remove the large table from the HTML, then the page does not crash.

No other browsers are affected.

I thought it might be something to do with the length of ID's on the elements in the table (they are generated by ASP.NET) but if I string replace them in the HTML file with shorter equivalents a crash still occurs.

I'm sure it's an IE issue but thought I'd log it in case anyones got any ideas, we're having to resort to not loading jQuery for IE6 browsers on specific pages on our site.

Just to update this, it looks like a bug in certain versions of mshtml.dll. It doesn't happen on all machines that are running IE6, some versions are ok. There are a number of fixes for IE6 crashes that Microsoft offer, so this looks like the problem.

Seems to be working for me but as you said it probably relates to certain versions os mshtml.dll. My only suggestion is to cut down on the amount of html you are outputting. That is a lot of information for IE to keep in its fragile memory. :(
