On this one page at http://www.geocities.com/jeffreychanff8/, a new window with
the page pops open every time the page is opened (which results the browser just
reopening the page in a new window over and voer again until you can click the
close button befoer the page loads up on a new window) because of a possible bug
with the embed tag. The tag reads like this:
<embed SRC="http://www.geocities.com/jeffreychanff8/" AUTOSTART=TRUE HIDDEN=TRUE>
I'm not sure how Mozilla is supposed to handle code like this, but something
unrequested window option.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open page in Mozilla.
A new window will open with the page, in this case the same which results in
as annoying as this is, this is not a security bug
Um...here's the problem:
This URL feeds an HTML document with text/html:
Then has an EMBED tag like:
..which takes us for a loop...
This is partly blocked by handling relative urls that hand back text/html in bug

From my comment of dupe bug 199631:
It has to do with an embed. The lines in question seem to be
<embed SRC="http://www.upholdfreedom.com/" AUTOSTART=TRUE HIDDEN=TRUE>
gives you a "Plug-in Not Loaded" window:
Information on this page requires a plugin for:
Navigator can retrieve... blah blah blah...
The testcase pops up a new window going to google (so you won't crash your
browser doing testing). It is just one line:
<embed SRC="http://www.google.com" AUTOSTART=TRUE HIDDEN=TRUE></embed>
I believe this has long since been fixed, documents are only allowed in <objects> now, which check against recursive loads.
Keeping this open to ensure bug 745030 doesn't regress, and to add tests.
