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.
Created attachment 79298 [details] 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 (OS X 2002 04 12)
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.
