Reproducible by following these steps:

  1. Provide a web server which you can access via your mobile phone
  2. Upload a file containing the following code:
                    <script type="text/javascript">
                                    function magic()
                                            window.setTimeout(o, 100);
                                    function o()
                                    window.setTimeout(magic, 100);

(Please note that the code above contains two occurrences of <?=time()?> (PHP) which can be replaced by anything else that returns a random string. It doesn't need to be PHP.)

  1. Open the file on the web server using ABB and let it run for 2-5 minutes. (It will populate the browser's history with hundreds of entries)
  2. Stop populating the history by closing the site.
  3. Tap the URL bar and open the history tab. The browser will crash.

If the browser doesn't crash, go back to step 3 and let it run for a little longer.
