if you try to print http://www.mozilla.org/projects/firebird/why/,
the cpu is pegged at 100% and the browser is effectively hung.
this is on a dual 2.4GHz box with 2G of dual-channel rambus
memory, so it "hangs" very quickly :-).

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.visit the page.
2.print it.
3.go for a cup of coffee
Actual Results:  
one of two cpus (it's a dual cpu box) is pegged at 100%. browser doesn't
respond to any input events.  can't cancel the print dialog, can't 
close the browser at all.  have to 'kill' it to make it go away.

Expected Results:  
printed the page.

*** Bug 264377 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
When duping bug 264377 i found some other problems with gamespot. Is there any
relation between this bug and bug 132337?

Closing this because of comment #6 and #9 as works for me. Feel free to reopen this bug if you can reproduce this reported bug in a latest Trunk build.

Please include a testcase or valid url then.
