User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.3b) Gecko/20030210 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.3b) Gecko/20030210 The browser sometimes freezes (locks up) when multiple tabs are opened. Other programs running at the time of the browser locking up are accessible from the Windows task bar; and function without problems. The browser lock-up is so complete that the page being viewed cannot be moved; other tabs are inaccessible; and the overal browswer window cannot be closed, even from the W98 task bar. The only way to close the browser is to Ctrl-Alt-Del; and use the "End Task" button on the "Close Program" screen. This usually requires two such requests, before the now "not responding" browser window is closed. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to a news site; www.azcentral.com' or www.msnbc.com 2. Right-Click several (typically >=3) stories to "Open Link in New Tab" 3. Continue reading; eventually, the screen will freeze Expected Results: I have been using Mozilla as my default browser for some time; back to around v. 0.8. This is the first problem I have encountered. "What should Mozilla have done instead?" What it did before! (That is, not freeze.) W98SE AMD Athlon processor
