From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win 9x 4.90; en-US; rv:0.9.5+) Gecko/20011109 BuildID: 2001110903 Mozilla does not crash, but it may as well have. 1/. the keyboard stopped 2/. windows would not open 3/. right click menu not operating 4/. windows will not load 5/. windows will not close 6/. unable to go back/forward 7/. unable to stop loading, or to reset 8/. unable to go 9/. unable to close Mozilla 10/. Memory goes down like crazy, poor Rambooster cannot keep up. I was only able to close Mozilla by pressing Ctrl/Alt/Del and pressing end task. However when I start Mozilla again it does not work properly, see 1 - 10 above. I then had to shut the computer down and start again to get Mozilla to work properly. However going back to Microsoft.com had the same effect. For those of us who are forced to use Microsoft software, it is very annoying when we are unable to use Mozilla when attempting to get information from Microsoft. As my field is Environmental Science not Information Technology I am unable to "fix" this problem myself. Although my University's I.T. department uses Linux, the University itself is one of those which has crawled up Microsoft's backside (www.monash.net), and as such I must use Windows etc to communicate with it. To all intents and purposes I am one of those people you want to use Mozilla when you finally reach Mozilla 1.0. I use Mozilla because I have found it to be infinitely better than Internet Explorer, and far better that Netscape 6 which I tried as beta. Don't tell me to download a nightly build to see if it fixes the problem, like someone has, I do that once a week only. That is not something you say to the general public if you want them to use your product. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.I am not masochistic enough to keep going back to Microsoft.com, but I will say whenever I have, something has gone wrong. 2. 3. Actual Results: Nothing, absolutely nothing. Pages do not load, and Mozilla has what I assume is a browser's version of a nervous breakdown. Expected Results: pages to load. I wish there as something else I could put in here.
This is bug 76485 (which happens to be a WONTFIX) *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 76485 ***
I visited this page using Netscape 4.78, and posted a message, I hope. http://communities.microsoft.com/newsgroups/default.asp?icp=GSS&slcid=US I then tried to access the page using Mozilla, but pasting the URL. Even before the page had loaded Mozilla stuffed up, not that I blame Mozilla. If Mozilla cannot access any Microsoft Support pages (Bugzilla Bug 76485) then there may also be a problem with a number of Microsoft.com pages which needs addressing.
