User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET CLR 1.1.4322) Build Identifier: I have just installed Firefox, it is very smooth, however, when I use it on www.wilderssecurity.com (registered member) to look at a thread, if I try to reply, Firefox stops responding and my CPU usage climbs to approx 51%. I'm running stock standard 0.9.2 it locks the page, I can Control+Alt+Delete and close the "not responding" pages. This is only found when replying to a post or using quote to reply to a post. I tried rebooting to no avail. Then tried IE and everything is normal, only find problem with Firefox... Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. As described above, go to Wilders Security 2. View a thread 3. try to reply or use "quote" to reply Actual Results: Page stops responding Expected Results: Continued, allowing a reply or a quote and a reply.

Solution was found, see: http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=41946 after removing and reinstalling to no avail, I was advised to remove the Mozilla folder from Documents and Settings\User\Application Data, restart FF, it then asked if I wanted to "Import" settings, I said no, and now it's as it should be...
I have the same problem, FireFox appears to be parsing the tags in the textarea, I have 2 links that demonstrate the problem. I run a forum, and for message preview I need to prefill the textarea from a previous copy, users who enter for example an img tag, but miss off the closing quote around the URL are currently corrupting the next page. http://www.nigelbrooks.com/textarea1.html - this file has an unmatched " inside the textarea, FireFox missed the </textarea> tag, and include extra code in the edit box. http://www.nigelbrooks.com/textarea1.html - I tried using " (&quot; - in case this is parsed here) to get around this, which half works, at least it sees the </textarea> tag, but inside tags within the textarea, " (&quot; - in case this is parsed here)is NOT converted to " (it is outside any other tags) The pages give more details. BOTH versions work fine with IE (6) and NetScape 4.76, I've not tried with anything else... Nigel Brooks
