From n.p.m.seamonkey :

|  Subject: unable to see http://www.eturnia.findhere.com/
|     From: Henrik Gemal <gemal@dk.net>
|  I can see it with IE4 an NS but todays build of Mozilla seem to die...

Using 19991215 WinNT, if I go to http://www.eturnia.findhere.com/
Mozilla just sits and spins (but the URL is live in Nav 4.7).

However, http://www.eturnia.findhere.com is a one-frame frameset that
points the single frame to http://members.xoom.com/Eturnia/.

If I go to http://members.xoom.com/Eturnia/, Mozilla throws up an
"application/x-unknown-content-type" (but again this is loadable
content in Nav 4.7

Using 'GET' from libwww-perl for http://members.xoom.com/Eturnia/, I
get the following (notice the two Content-Type: headers -- it's the
only odd thing that I notice).

I believe the second content-type is just coming from the interpretation of the
META tags. I have loaded many pages in Mozilla that contain these tags without
ill effect. It is interesting that both this bug and bug 21605 both are on Xoom.
maybe someone needs to investigate a little more deeply what is going on with
Xoom's server.

charset= again?

I've noticed this behavior with XOOM sites also.  If you add a _XMCM  and
the exact filename into the url like so
http://members.xoom.com/_XMCM/Eturnia/Index.htm the page renders in Mozilla.
Hope this helps a little.

The content for http://www.eturnia.findhere.com/ _was_ a single frame frameset
that pointed through to http://members.xoom.com/Eturnia/ . I had problems
(likely related) in going to either URL (as noted above).

Today, http://www.eturnia.findhere.com/ loads find, but the content has
changed to a vanilla HTML page, promising to be back Real Soon Now. (And
perhaps the Networking problem I noted previously has already been solved).

**However**, today if I go to http://members.xoom.com/Eturnia/ I get a rather
nasty *crash* in XPCOM.DLL. (With the limited Wintop tool, apparently,
mozilla's footprint starts zooming by ~6MB per second! until VM is exhausted --
I don't entirely trust Wintop's numbers, but something has, uh, "gone wrong").

Should I file a new bug for this, or do you want to see if you

hmm. a new bug should be filed, but http://members.xoom.com/Eturnia/ loads just
fine for me on my winnt build.

Marking dependent on bug #23777 (the original problem may be gone, but this 
frameset keeps finding a brand new way to fail ...). See #23777.

It is possible that the original problem for this URL is gone, but bug 23777
blocks this bug. The behaviour of this page has morphed several times. It 
currently behaves as noted by me Jan 21 (and retested with Feb 03 build, win95) 
on bug 23777 -- the frameset comes up completely blank. [I expect that when bug 
23777 is resolved, then this bug will also be defunct].

Okay. Bug #23777 is fixed and the original bug reported is no longer an issue.

(There is a DOM bug that may throw up an alert, but that is a different problem
-- see bug #30627).
