Description

16 years ago
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; Q312461)
BuildID:    20020418

As soon as I launch Mozilla, my system begins thrashing. Mozilla never finishes 
launching. If I check my Task Manager, I can see that the mozilla process is 
allocating about 1 MB each second, and continues to do so until my system 
crashes. I have observed this identical behavior in one other application, this 
was Norton Antivirus 2000, which is known to be incompatible with XP.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Launch Mozilla
2.
3.

Actual Results:  System thrashes. Other programs work, but slowly. Eventually 
the system complains that virtual memory is too low (I have 288MB RAM 
installed).

Expected Results:  Launch

I used to be able to run Netscape 6 just fine. When I first installed Mozilla 
on this system, which was about 2 months ago, I had this problem immediately. 
Once it happened, I was no longer able to run Netscape 6 either.
