From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.01; Windows NT 5.0)
BuildID:    20020218

mozilla locks up when save prompts for overwriting existing file, both buttons 
cannot be used, dialog (including underlying) cannot be closed and other 
browser windows don't respond to mouse or keboard. However windows do redraw 
and can be raised or lowered. Mozilla has to be closed by killing the first 
instance of mozilla-bin.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. goto a page to download something (eg. 
2. choose a file to download (eg. patch-2.4.18-rc1-rc2.bz2)
3. choose locations where file already exists (eg. /usr/src)

Actual Results:  mozilla does not respond to user actions as descriped above

Expected Results:  continue to work: if I choose OK, download and overwrite 
file; if I choose cancel, let me specify other filename/path or if I want to 
wait let me use another browser window

Some extra info:

build 2002021906 has the same problem and it looks like it is related to
displaying error/warning dialogs. Using the find dialog works, but when the
search phrase cannot be found a warning dialog pops up and mozilla hangs in the
same way as reported above
when started from a terminal this is the last output before mozilla hangs:
-- start --
Same node -- (0, 1)
Will need to pull a new node: restart=0, frag len=1
Loop ...
New node -- Resetting pointers. Deque size is 0
No more deque, looking in tree
:::::::::::::::::::::::::: Got another node >>>> Node: NULL
Iterator gave: >>>> Node: NULL
Clear the deque!
-- end (mozilla hangs) --
I don't see this with build 2002-02-20-08.  Rudmer, what windowmanager are you

I'm using KDE 2.1.2
That would be the desktop environment, not the window manager....

rudmer@gandalf:~ # kwin --version
Qt: 2.3.1

Can you reproduce this in a recent build ( or even 0.9.9 )?

I think the 'Find in page' was fixed sometime ago.
If it was caused by the same thing maybe it is fixed ...
wfm, as nobody can reproduce it. reopen if you can.

reopen only if this bug is still a problem with a *recent trunk build*.
