Click on any of the articles in the above URL (I think they all require
registration...), and you will get a form asking you to give your registration
user and password.  I fill them in (and whether or not I check the box to save
it on my computer) NGLayout freezes.

Severity: major → critical
Priority: P2 → P1
The problem here is that NGLayout crashes (currently with a beep, although it
wasn't that way before) upon submission of *any* form with an <input
type=password ...>

See my demos at:
http://www.fas.harvard.edu/~dbaron/tests/nglayout/form.html   (causes crash)
http://www.fas.harvard.edu/~dbaron/tests/nglayout/form2.html   (doesn't cause
crash)

Raising priority and severity because this involves *many* sites, i.e., the
NYTimes, bugzilla, etc.

Gecko no longer crashes on submitting passwords.

The new "beep" is from a message in the DOS shell asking if you would like to
save the username/password for this form, and must be cleared by typing a y or
n, followed by an Enter into the DOS shell before the browser continues to
submit the form.

This bug, although it was fixed, has now reappeared.  See the form.html and
form2.html tests above.  On form.html, I click submit, the button is depressed
(but does not rise) and then neither the viewer text-window or the display
window will paint or respond to anything.

(and I discovered this trying to use bugzilla)
FYI, I am using the 99-01-27 Win32 build.

This is fixed again, as of 99-02-01.  Closing bug, again.

sent message to dbaron, clarifying entry.
Status: RESOLVED → VERIFIED
Yes, I meant resolving as fixed.

I reopened the bug because the problem reappeared, and then closed it again
when it went away a few days later.  Verified fix by testing the page
http://www.fas.harvard.edu/~dbaron/tests/nglayout/form.html .  Therefore I'm
marking it as verified.
