Mozilla freezes when atempting to use text zoom at http://www.buitenhoftv.nl, I
would attempt to isolate the html, javascript, css, comments, text or fonts
involved but there`s just to much code for this text + photo + 3 links page.

Workaround: dont visit the site.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open http://www.buitenhoftv.nl
2. Select View -> text-zoom -> <something>
3. Open the windows taskmanager and watch the CPU usage graph jump to 100%...
and stay that way

Actual Results:  
Mozilla freezes, and windows starts sugesting I kill it instead of keeping
waiting (how typical)

Expected Results:  
I expected Mozilla to bake me a pie, organize a party, and invite all the
friends in my personal addres book over (Ie everybody with a home addres set?).
Also mozilla should have given a "hire stripper? yes/no" dialog.... just like
netpositive, why can`t mozilla be more like netpositive?

The source is full of javascript resizing and popup stuff, I have supression
enabled for most of that. Also these scripts are full of browserchecks. My gut
feeling is that one of these scripts ends up in a loop.

<i>You're using 4+ month old Mozilla. Check newer one.</i>

4 months already? time flies when your enjoying your browser. 1.4 RC2 works
without a glitch (in this case), 1.3 seams like only yesterday. At this rate you
people have to be carefull not to finish mozilla to soon ;-)

Now lets see if I can bug microsoft into doing something about IE 5.5.

Sorry to bother you, Thanks for the browser.
