If you go to the test URL (hurry, in case they fix the problem with the FTP site!) and click on the first tutorial link (Martin Bernreuther's Introduction to wxWindows), a PDF on an FTP server, there's a permissions problem, and the spinner/throbber stays on without ever being switched off until stop is clicked or loading of a new page is completed. (Mozilla Debian Package 1.0rc2-2).
Summary: Spinner stays on after clicking link to FTP site with permissions error → throbber stays on after clicking link to FTP site with permissions error

reporter: please try a newer build. This sounds like it is actually fixed in bug 162326. If so, send the bug back to FTP, and use "reassign bug to owner of selected component."
I agree with Ben. At any rate, both the ftp site and Tony's testcase in Comment #2 are WORKSFORME using a current Mozilla build. Because of the similarity with bug 162326, let me reassign back to Networking: FTP, but I will resolve this as WORKSFORME.

Resolving as WORKSFORME. Both the ftp site and Tony's testcase in Comment #2 work fine for me using current Mozilla builds on WinNT, Linux. The throbber does not stay running no matter what I do. Of course, when accessing the ftp site the throbber runs until the Acrobat PDF file is loaded, which can take 10 - 20 seconds. But once it's loaded, the throbber stops. This may not be the permissions problem Tony first reported, however. But again, the testcase in Comment #2 works fine, too. Tony: can you confirm this with an up-to-date build? If everything is OK for you, too, could you mark this bug "Verified"? Otherwise, you can reopen the bug; thanks -
