After first having loaded above URL the browser hangs/loops when trying to load
a new URL. This occurs independently of the new URL being selected by a link,
the history or explicitly typed into the URL line. The browser doesn't react to
any user input e.g. mouse clicks or repainting its window. The browser has to be
killed from outside and then restarted.

This hang occurs not only with the URL mentioned above but also with other URL's.

WFM, day old CVS, Linux. There were some Flash animations on the page when i
looked. Reporter: Do you have flash installed? Does the behaviour change if you
try without flash?

Yes, I had libflashplayer.s0 installed. To test I removed it and alas the hang
disappeared. So for the time being I will leave it removed. But what does it mean?
Where is the bug? Is it in Flash or is it in the Mozilla browser?

It may be some oddball case of bug 58339.

Which sound deamon are you running?
Are you playing music when the hang occures?

If use the default kde sound deamon: Can you enable flash, and test if the hang
still occures if you start mozilla with "artsdsp mozilla" ?
If it works then, this is a dup of 58339

I don't use any sound daemon nor am I playing music while browsing.

For me this didn't happen for me.  On Windows XP fully windows updated

Mozilla 1.3

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.3) Gecko/20030312

however, when I typed in, and then viewed the drop down
menu for the back button the page in question
( didn't show up in the
history (If there was a page before the page in question was opened back sent me
straight back to that page, if there was no page before the page in question
then the back button was grayed out)  I tried this both in tabbed browsing, and
non-tabbed browsing.

This bug did not occur for me, using 1.4rc1
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030529
I had no problems clicking any links, and the page was visible in the back
button history.

WFM in 1.4rc3 W2K
Reporter, if you see this problem in a recent build of Mozilla, feel free
to return and reopen the bug.
