IceCat stability vs Firefox Linux/Windows

I've recently discovered IceCat, downloaded and installed (actually, just unpacked) on openSUSE Linux 10.3. The first version I've used was 3.0.1, now it's 3.0.2. I also use Firefox 3.0.1 on openSUSE and Firefox 3.0.3 on Windows 2000 on the same machine, and Firefox 3.0.3 on Windows XP on another machine.

The matter is that with one particular site (www.loveplanet.ru) IceCat shows much worse stability as compared to Firefox. In fact, clicking almost any link there results in crashes of IceCat in 50% of cases. FF on Linux crashes sometimes, and on Windows — almost never.

1) Is that about IceCat vs Firefox, or Linux vs Windows?
2) How can I make a good bug report? Is there any guidance available specific for IceCat? I realize, the information, I've provided, is of no big value as such, but I haven't had any experience with testing browsers. With other application types, you can submit a test case document, but with browsers you can't — you just provide a link, right? And I can't say, any particular link ensures 100% repeatable crashes, just in, yes, 50% of cases.

Best regards,
