Description

16 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20021130
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20021130

I've had several instances of mozilla 1.2.1 hanging without cosuming any
CPU cycles for some sites.  A completely consistant example is
http://www.lordoftherings.net/.

By "hanging" I mean that the window does not even repaint when deiconified or
uncovered.  I need to use a command-line "kill" to shut down the browser.

After fetching the page with wget, I opened it with a file: URL and got exactly
the same behavior.



Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Type "http://www.lordoftherings.net/" into the URL window.
2. Press <RETURN>.
3.

Actual Results:  
Browser immediately stops responding.  Animations stop, window will no longer
repaint itself.


Expected Results:  
It should have brought up the web page.

This is http://www.lordoftherings.net collected via wget.

Opening this file with a file: URL demonstrates this bug.

Here is the identifying information from my Flash plugin (installed system-wide):

Macromedia
Flash Player 5
Netscape Plug-in for Linux
9 September 2002

Mozilla 1.3a does NOT hang at this site, so the bug is either fixed or masked
with the later code.
>Flash Player 5
Please upgrade to Flash6
