SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:
  • You access a webpage by using Internet Explorer 9.
  • The webpage contains an input box that is located inside a frame.
  • You save some content, such as the password for a user, in the input box by using the AutoComplete feature of Internet Explorer.

In this scenario, Internet Explorer 9 may crash when you revisit the webpage and use the AutoComplete feature.

For example, a webpage contains an input box for users to type their user name and password. You use Internet Explorer 9 to open the webpage, and you type your user name and password. Then, you save the password in the AutoComplete Passwords dialog box. When you revisit the webpage and then complete the user name by using the saved password, Internet Explorer 9 may crash.
