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.
does it also happen with a new Mozilla-profile?
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 attach files to the bug).
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.
Created attachment 147416 [details] 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.
It crashed on me LInux 2004061405 TB94460K
