Re: the closed ticket #4082:
Whenever I try to download something (7-Zip, MinGW) from Source Forge with Internet Explorer 6, the browser crashes during or before the download.
My Open Source project (cnv) is hosted on Source Forge, and I'm concerned that many of my potential users may be using IE6.
IE6 still has a significant presence on the web. All browser stats are bogus except for one's own, but I've seen estimates that IE6 may account for around 20% of browser activity on the web.
Here are the stats on my IE6 crash:
AppName: iexplore.exe AppVer: 6.0.2900.5512 ModName: mshtml.dll
ModVer: 6.0.2900.5890 Offset: 0008f2a5
