This behavior has been inconsistent, but several times within the same browser
session I have returned to my page to have the page reload repeatedly,
without any pause between reloads. This may be related to my auto-refresh
setting -- I have the page set to reload itself every 15 minutes or so.

I just experienced the same behavior with  The page reloaded
continually.  I tried several mozilla sessions with the same result, but
internet explorer 5.00.2920.0000 did not exhibit the same behavior.  While I
have the page bookmarked, I do not have the bookmark set to check the location
for updates.

I'm just a layman who uses Mozilla, but I'd like to suggest one possibility. 
I've noticed that does periodically reload itself, even if you don't
have check-for-updates set.  It's not frequent, it could be every 10 minutes or
every three hours for all I know.  So one possibility is that the page
accidentally set itself to reload every second, and IE refuses to reload past a
certain frequency threshhold.  Just a thought.  At the very least, it might be
worth finding out if does the same thing.  

I don't know if I should check "confirm," I'm not very familiar with bugzilla,
so I won't touch it.

Worksforme on Build ID: 2002030803 (0.9.9+), Windows 98.

Reporter, could you try this problem again on a new build? You can download an
updated nightly build from

Close Mozilla and run that program. Running a nightly build can be a little
risky. If you'd like, you could wait for 0.9.9, the next milestone release. That
will probably be released in a few days.

I have installed 0.9.9, build id: 20002031104, as requested. Installation is on
Windows 2000.

The problem has not occurred; however, even with the previous build (ID
2002020406), the problem occurred only when Mozilla was first installed, never
