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

Clicking on a link (e.g. in google), press Escape during waiting for loading the
new page disables this link. Other links on the same page can be pressed. Only a
reload enables this link.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start e.g. google or a page where the following links will load slow.
2. click on a link, in google e.g. "next page"
3. press ESC while the old page is still visible and is waiting for the new one.
4. this link is now "dead"
5. press reload and right away ESC
6. now this link is enabled and can be pressed.



Expected Results:  
Links should always be enabled / beeing "not dead", even if ESC was pressed.

This was tested in Mozilla Firebird and Mozilla 1.6 and 1.7.
