14 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040608
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040608

Windows 2000 with SP 4.
Mozilla 1.7rc3

Mozilla 1.7rc3 freezes the system (must use power-off button)
when paging down quickly (i.e. single clicking the scrollbar
to page down - repeatedly).  The sample URL provided is an
example, but it has happened on other (very long) WEB pages.
Nothing works when this happens - not even ctrl-alt-del; even
the mouse pointer freezes.  Tried waiting up to 30 minutes
for mozilla to recover and free the system - it never happens.


Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. go to http://jamesthornton.com/linux/man
2. repeatedly single-click the mouse on the vertical scrollbar to page down
   multiple pages
3. the system freezes after 4 or 5 mouse clicks

Actual Results:  
the system freezes and must be powered off.

Expected Results:  
should have scolled down to the next page

Here is another page that causes the same problem:
http://man.linuxquestions.org/2.php
Product: Browser → Seamonkey
WFM Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.8b2) Gecko/20050405
Tested both reported Sites and noticed no problem.

Resolving as WFM

Larry, when the Problem still exists with a current build (in this case, a
talkback-ID would be great) feel free to re-open.
