Open the validator page with Firefox.  I see this bug with Firefox and
after updating to, I still see it.  Attempt to validate any page and
I'll get the following error:
<start error>

Software error:

For help, please send mail to the webmaster ([no address given]), giving this
error message and the time and date of the error. 

<end error>
Using Ethereal, I can see that this is coming back as an HTTP/1.1 500 Internal
Server Error.  This is 100% consistent.  
I don't see this error with IE6.  
I don't see this error on a Linux PC running Firefox
I'm not sure if this is specific to my installation of Firefox, or possibly a
particular add on.  These are the addons that are installed:
ColorZilla 1.0
del.icio.us 1.2
DOM Inspector
Firebug 1.05
Google Notebook
Greasemonkey 0.7.20070607.0
Html Validator
MeasureIt 0.3.6
Operator 0.7
Pearl Crescent Page Saver Basic 1.5
Quick Locale Switcher 1.6.2
Web Developer 1.1.4

This bug also prevents certain Firefox extensions (Web Developer Toolbar) from
being able to validate pages.
