I recently installed Mozilla 1.3b.
When I go to, click the "job search" button and
search for a job,
Mozilla freezes.
Other applications seem to run normally,
but I can't move or close the Mozilla window.
I'm forced to do CTRL-ALT-DEL to bring up the task list
and stop Mozilla.
I expected Talkback to fire up, but it doesn't.

I think Mozilla 1.3a worked correctly,
but I can't confirm at the moment.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. go to
2. click the "job search" button
3. select a city and hit the search button.
4. Click on one of the companies.
(Sometimes it freezes before I get that far).

Actual Results:  
Mozilla freezes. I can't move or close the Mozilla window.
Other applications continue to run just fine.

Expected Results:  
The Mozilla window should move when I drag the title bar.
The Mozilla window should close when I click the go-away box.
When I hit ctrl-alt-del to bring up the task list, select Mozilla, and hit "end
task", mozilla should gracefully exit. (Instead I get the "not responding"
dialog box).
I also expected TalkBack to start up, but I haven't seen it since I installed 1.3b.

"modern" theme.

Perhaps a related to Bug 161511 ?

I have no idea how to make a stack trace on this Windows box.

Confirm bug: I go to, which passes the request to an .asp page. A
few moments into loading that page (it's the sign-on page), and mozilla freezes
tight. This problem persists after re-booting my PC. I just installed 1.3b. I
can further verify that 1.3a did not have this problem. My platform is PC/WinMe,
and I use a (slow!) dial-up connection.

Please upgrade to the latest nightly or to 1.3 final when it is released.

Today I confirmed that still hangs my Mozilla 1.3b.
Then I downloaded the latest nightly (2003031108), uninstalled the 1.3b,
installed the nightly build in a new directory.

Now Mozilla seems to work fine with

Thank you Darin Fisher and Andrew Hagen.
