From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:0.9.4+) Gecko/20010930 BuildID: 2001093008 When I open a new tab such that my new tab's name is at the right side of the screen, the page loads and reloads continously. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open Mozilla 2. Open just as many tabs to almost fill up the screen with their names. If you were to open a new one, the new tab name would be touching or crossing the browser's width 3. open a new tab and point it on http://www.debianplanet.org/debianplanet/article.php?sid=409&mode=thread&order=0&thold=0 Actual Results: The page loads and reloads continuously. Expected Results: Page loads once You can also reproduce the bug by opening the sidebar so that the tab containing the URL 'gets too close to the right side' Note: this behavior appeared initially only when I was using tabs up to the right side. Now it appears also when I am not.... Perhaps is it only linked to the URL? It only does it on that URL. So I am not sure of the description anymore. Anyway, that's how I manage to reproduce it.

I am the reporter: I see the same reloading behavior as well on build 2001100403, with slightly different reproductible steps - open a window [- open or not any bar] - load the page http://mandrakeforum.com/article.php?sid=881&lang=en - open a new tab -> starts reloading. Really anoying.. Note if you close the opened bar, it stops reloading. I've seen that on several other pages as well.

I am the reporter and I don't see this bug anymore. I think it disappeared with the new page 'tab-partitioning' code 1 month ago. firstname.lastname@example.org could you check if you still see the problem? I recommend changing the status to FIXED.
Reassigning to new component owner.
