I was trying to Save a page with Ctrl-S, and the browser stopped doing anything
(no feedback). Perhaps it was trying to download a new copy from a slow server.
I tried a few menus to try to work out what was going on, and at one point
there was a 'Save' dialogue obscured by the Window menu - the latter not
responding to the ESC key.

Thereafter Camino would not download new pages such as Google, or even more
importantly the Mozilla Bugzilla page.

It does, though, handle the currently open pages correctly.

Reproducible: Didn't try
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to Save a page from a slow server
2. ??
3. ??

Actual Results:  
Browser stopped browsing

Expected Results:  
Should give feedback; and if it was, should not download a fresh page to Save, but
that is an existing Bug.

I saw this message in Console, but it may be irrelevant:

2004-06-22 13:59:02.663 Camino[26349] *** NSTimer ignoring exception
'NSRangeException' (reason '*** -[NSCFArray objectAtIndex:]: index (4) beyond
bounds (0)') that raised during posting of timer with target 23eda20 and
selector 'eventTimer:'
yeah, that exception would stop the entire browser window from working, maybe
eeven the whole app.

can you reproduce this at all? i've never seen it. can you provide a url for us
to test on?

The URL I was on points to an internal server. I will try to
reproduce, but so far it hasn't happened.

Are there instructions for getting a backtrace. If the event
loop is working, I would expect an interrupt to break in
mach_msg_trap ()

Closing bug, not enough info and I can't confirm (I have tried many times).
