Description

14 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040206 Firefox/0.8
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040206 Firefox/0.8

We have our own HTTP server used in our embedded devices. When I goto the page,
it's going in an infinite loop with "GET" requests. The requests are for the
same page. Note: It loads the page before going into the loop. Another problem
is that the CPU usage is 100% and Mozilla stops responding. Pressing ESC or Stop
button relieves some pressure, but the CPU usage still remains at 100%.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
Just accessing the website gives this error, you can find an ethreal capture of
this at the following address:
http://support.intoto.com/mozilla_loop.cap
Actual Results:  
CPU Usage 100%
Browser keeps sending Get Requests for the same page
Browser Not Responding


Expected Results:  
It should have loaded the page and stopped.

Yes. It happens on a new profile and also I have tried Mozilla, Firefox on both
Linux and Windows
Not much we can do about this without the source of the page in question.....
(use http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/attachment.cgi?bugid=242129&action=enter to

Files that crash mozilla

These are the files that will crash mozilla from both local and remote view.

I know its something to do with the javascript, espically the layers code.

There is another directory in the zip file called "diff" that contains the code
that does NOT crash the browser.

I think it's just poor programming on the programmers part here, but it still
shouldn't kill the browser.

FYI, in case I failed to mention. That same page works in IE without problems.
Which is what our people seem to use to test these pages, but I made them also
test in mozilla, which is how I find the problem.

some stepping through gdb

confirming freeze and high CPU usage w/current trunk, Linux.
Broke it in gdb when the freeze was a fact, backtraced and then stepped as far
as i got before the freeze got the better of me. Non-debug - FWIW.
