"Failure in browser during Loading phase"

An error: ERROR encountered loading https://myapp.company.net/reports/createReport.cfm: Failure in browser during Loading phase : Insufficient memory occured during the rendering process of this document.

I was having problems running a report in one of my ColdFusion 8 applications that generated a PDF, and in debugging the issue, I found an error message above. I've not seen it before, and I even tried using the interwebs to find the source, but to no avail.

The URLs have been changed for those that are wondering.

Its a big file, so I'm not surprised something is off, but this message actually cites the browser as the source of the issue. I was hitting the page using Google Chrome, so I wondered if I should check it in other browsers. I loaded up Firefox 3 and got the dreaded java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: Java heap space error. Tried reloading it in Chrome and now got the heap space error as well... did I flood the memory running the test, or did Firefox handle something differently?

I'm confused, as the original message cited the browser as the cause, and when I switched browsers the error changed.
