This may be windows-only; have not tested it on Linux, but have on Win98, Win98
SE, and WinXP -- bug is recurring on all.

This does not occur with all websites.  I have neither the time nor energy to
scan every page's source to look for common components, but I suspect
javascript.  I have disabled java, have no extensions, and no additional
plug-ins.  I do have "Load Links in Background" set to true.  I have customized
my menu bar.  There is no text, small icons to false, and no search bar.

The problem:  With too many (4-10) tabs of a specific website (have not tested
to see if only one instance of bad website affects all tabs, even those I know
to be non-affecting) the program first visually messes.  The icons dissappear
(no big deal).  The backgrounds on websites become black (overcomeable).  The
images on websites dissappear (starting to become bad).  Links sometimes work,
sometimes don't (bad).  The fonts ALL (website and program) become MS Sans Serif
(no big deal).  The program stops functioning, piece by piece.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
The best example of a website that is affecting is
http://www.upgradesource.com's individual product pages
1.  Navigate to http://www.upgradesource.com (there are other websites; I am IN
NO WAY attempting to advertise this company, their products, or anything to do
with them.  I am not an affiliate and I appologize for any violations or
offenses this may cause)
2.  Open individual product pages in separate tabs.  Get to about 10 if you
don't begin to notice the problem.  Otherwise, there it is.

Actual Results:  
The pages appear in the aforementioned state and then the program loses

Expected Results:  
Displayed the pages without error and not lost functionality.
Sounds like it could be bug 204374.
yeah it certainly does. Reporter, please reopen if you see something
significantly different about this report to that of bug 204374.
