Crash when closing 2nd window after inserting a link

The htmlArea 2 & 3 editors have been discontinued.

We've made these forums available as a read-only reference and knowledge-base for people using or developing editors based on htmlArea 2 or 3.

Anyone who is interested in taking over version 2 or 3 is free to do so. All we ask is that you choose a new name that doesn't have "htmlarea" in it to avoid confusion with this site. We'll even give you a link in the directory to make it easier for people to find you. If you are developing or hosting an htmlArea based-editor under a new name, please submit it to our directory.

Crash when closing 2nd window after inserting a link Can't Post


The whole IE 6 crashes when I do the following steps:

1. I load a page with htmlarea editor in IE6
2. I open a new window (Ctrl + N)
3. In the new window I copy a link from anywhere (right click => copy hyperlink)
4. Now I switch back to the window with htmlarea
5. I write some words in the htmlarea editor
6. I mark the words with the left mouse button
7. Now I click on the link symbol of htmlarea
8. The popup window appeares
9. I paste the link in the field for the link (Ctrl + V) and press the OK button
10. Now the popup window is closed and everything is still working fine!
11. Now I switch back to the previous opened window (where I got my link from) and close it
12. After closing this window htmlarea always freezes!

Is there a solution for this problem?
