 I tried to download HD version of video `H3CYYXnuFYY` (YT id) using
 `savefrom.net` or `keepvid.com` sites. Crash is reproducible. Steps:

 1. Type the link `DISABLE_YOUR_SPAMBLOCKER/watch?v=H3CYYXnuFYY` in the
 form of `keepvid.com` website.
 2. Press "download"
 3. Make right mouse click on the link "Download MP4 - 720p" (see below).
 4. Select "save file as..."
 5. After opening file saving dialogue the browser immediately crashes.

 The same happens when one tries to download HD version of this video using
 savefrom.net website (sometimes video starts to playing in browser, but
 when one tries to save it using right mouse click, torbrowser crashes).
 The same observed for few other youtube videos.

 System info: Linux 64 on Debian, default Tor Browser Bundle (6.0.2 at the
 moment) with the default settings.

 P.S. Ridiculously, I try to submit this ticket third time. The first two
 my TorBrowser with default settings crashed in this
 `trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/newticket` website. Is it the same
 problem? I prepared clean copy of $HOME to verify these tests. Now I
 disabled JS completely to be sure.
