Description

16 years ago
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.0rc1)
Gecko/20020417
BuildID:    2002041711

I visited the page above several times.  Each time, the browser froze, it would
not respond to mouse or key-clicks, and the UI stopped updating.  When I looked
in the task manager, I could see that mozilla.exe's memory usage was increasing
at the rate of about 2MB-per-second.  I had to kill it manually.

Reproducible: Always

Actual Results:  Browser froze and ate memory.

Expected Results:  Browser should have displayed the page.

Sorry that my build isn't that recent.

I concur with comment #2: Scroll-wheel is almost as fast as normal, scroll bar
is slow.
Reporter: Please try a recent daily build.
