15 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-GB; rv:1.5) Gecko/20031007 Firebird/0.7
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-GB; rv:1.5) Gecko/20031007 Firebird/0.7

If you click a link to another web page then, while that page is still loading,
click another link to an anchor on the first page, the new page continues to
open over the current page.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Go to http://www.w3.org/Help/siteindex
2.Click a link under Technology Keywords (e.g. HTML)
3.While that page is still loading, click an Alphabetical Index letter (e.g. H)

Actual Results:  
The H index section is shown briefly, but when the HTML page finishes loading it
is displayed over it.

Expected Results:  
Firebird should abort loading of the HTML page and just display the H index section.
