ESC does not stop loading a page
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win 9x 4.90; en-US; rv:0.9.6+) Gecko/20011210 BuildID: 2001121003 If I hit the ESC-key, Mozilla does not act in any way Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: Load a page and hit ESC. Expected Results: Pageloading should be interrupted
Reporter: Is there a special URL which provokes this behaviour? Do you have the possibility to download a later build? Even a DNS lookup can normally be interrupted by ESC, that is when the status line says "Resolving host ...".

email@example.com: Can you reproduce this every time or only at one point during the page load ?
That was a good question: If Mozilla got an answer from the server, your can't stop the loading with ESC but with the STOP-Button.
What i mean is this : open http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/ and click on the "View Bugs Already Reported Today" link. I can stop the page loading every time with ESC only if I see the "Please stand by..." message ESC does not work. I that what you see ? Is this only with your latest build or with all builds (0.9.6) ?
i think i've noticed this recently with builds from 10 dec and 11 dec on linux rh7.2. shouldn't this go over to networking? don't think it belongs in xp apps, but... claudius, have you seen recent reports of this behavior?

to clarify my experiences: hitting Esc doesn't seem to stop page loading, but clicking the Stop button in the toolbar does.
The NSLOOKUP can be interrupted by ESC and STOP. If Mozilla started to render the page, STOP works, ESC does not. This can be seen with every page. This problem has a long tradition, so it is with build 2001111603 on WinNT, with 2001121003 on WinME, with some other builds as well on Windows and Linux. I don't think this was a little bug from only one nightly.
dupe of bug 76495 ?
