Description

User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.8a2) Gecko/20040714 Firefox/0.9.1+
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.8a2) Gecko/20040714 Firefox/0.9.1+

The top 100 Browser buster site (as mentioned in the URL) keeps reloading
http://www.mckinley.com.  It increments the counter, but never loads a new page.
 I don't think this is a problem with the buster itself -- I looked in bug
197425 and saw no mention of it.

Reproducible: Sometimes
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Load the current nightly build
2. Visit the browser buster page mentioned in the URL above
3. Wait for it to reload

Actual Results:  
As mentioned above.

Expected Results:  
It should have moved to the next page in the list.

Also, my apologies if this belongs elsewhere; please move it to the proper
section if it doesn't belong here.  I didn't file it under the browser buster
bug because the browser buster (in the past) worked fine for me under Mozilla
but currently doesn't under Firefox.

Using Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.7.7)
Gecko/20050414 Firefox/1.0.3 Mac X.2.8:

This problem still occurs. I loaded the URL above and it kept showing the page
for the PBS station in Northern California. The counter would advance but the
website loaded was the same over and over again.

you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
