I'm wondering of other Opera users are experiencing the same thing.

I run Opera on Windows 2000, and every time I exit the Edit Profile page in some YaBB forums, the browser crashes! It happens when I submit changes, or even of I click on the Back button. (???)

Two boards that this has happened to are:
[yabb.xnull.com...] (Official YaBB page)
[csnato.com...] (one of my forums)

Has this happened to anyone else?

I just tested with Opera 5 and no such problem. BUT, I'm on Win98. The OS can make a big difference. I have pages that blow up on various browsers on Win2K and I've never been able to fix them.

However, I never saw it with Opera, always with NN or IE.

I couldn't reproduce it under 98 either, but I was only able to download that page once due to the huge size and long delays of that board - whew.
2000 did have some known code crashers, but I don't think this is one of them. I'll post a bug report and see if anyone can reproduce it. Thanks.
