Description

16 years ago
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X; en-US; rv:0.9.9+)
Gecko/20020411
BuildID:    2002041108

A friend sent me a joke link to an infinite popup page, saying I'd need to kill
my browser to get rid of it. Trusting the power of Mozilla, I went there.

The popups were blocked as expected, but the script somehow screwed up Gecko,
even after I closed the offending tab.

The following screenshot is AFTER I closed the whole window and opened a new one.

Reproducible: Didn't try
Steps to Reproduce:
1. For the handful of people who haven't done this already, set Preferences /
Advanced / Scripts to DISALLOW unrequested windows.
2. You might also want to disallow "move or resize windows".
3. Open http://www.raus.de/crashme


Actual Results:  See screenshot (to be attached shortly).

Expected Results:  Even if one page contains malicious scripted loops, it should
not cause other tabs and/or windows to display incorrectly.

screenshot after closing old window and opening new one

Note that all toolbars and help text are blank white. Also, the click points
for any interactive objects (links, buttons, input text boxes) are located in
what should be the correct place on the window, not the shifted location where
the object is being displayed.

The scripts contain no loops. This did not affect my Mozilla build iun any way

Upon further thought, I forgot to mention that I have privacy settings to alert
me any time a site wants to load an image. This page kept reloading itself, and
after several iterations the image alert box became skewed much like my
screenshot. After that the browser also got messed up. So perhaps the bug is due
to multiple reloads of the image alert.

Either this was a one-time fluke problem, or RC1 fixed it.
