testcase
Isn't this just bug 85631?  I any case, that destcase will likely stop
demonstrating the problem once bug 84582 is fixed (and we will need a better
testcase at that point).

The testcase no longer demonstrates a "continues to block layout" bug now that bug 84582 is fixed, but the throbber does keep spinning until the old load finishes.

What would the "better testcase" described in comment 2 look like and demonstrate?
Not sure that we can do better than the throbber thing, actually.  Not easily.

slightly improved testcase

Instead of setting the href to "", which refers to the page itself, set it to a fast (data: URL) thing.  This demonstrates the throbber issue more clearly.
