While loading page browser freezes and/or fails
Overview: When going to the above URL today (Nov 19, 1999) the browser froze repeatedly after rendering part of the page. This crash also resulted in the mozilla-bin executable consuming 100% of processor usage. Reproduction: 1) Entered www.abcnews.com in the location box, hit <ENTER> Actual Results: The browser began loading the page and then froze after loading about half way. I tried accessing the page several times with both the latest build (11/18/99) and the M11 release and both froze. What's worse though is that after freezing/crashing the mozilla-bin executable went crazy consuming ~100% of the cpu. Killing the browser window failed to kill the runaway process which, after waiting for a bit to see if it would quit by itself, I ultimately had to result killing via kill -9. Expected Results: I expect it should load the page.
