I'm using Firefox 2004-08-25-08-trunk on Windows XP Pro with SP2. Reproducable: always Steps to reproduce: 1. Visit http://security.itworld.com/4340/040824shruggle/ 2. Click on continue link Results: A new window is opened and Firefox freezes and starts using all the CPU. Expected: Firefox should normaly open the page without freezing and using all the CPU.
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9a1) Gecko/20050901 Firefox/1.6a1 - Windows XP, SP2. WFM. The continue Link loads the page without any problems.
In normal use of various pages on Neopets.com the CPU will suddenly go to 100% with Firefox taking 95-99% of it, and often freeze, requiring shutdown of many tabs. It has also occurred while simply loading one text file from my computer, without any other tabs open. Once it has gone to 100% cpu, the only way to restore it is to shutdown Firefox and reboot. I've never seen it recover on its own. This occurred occasionally with previous Firefox, but several times a day on Firefox 220.127.116.11 I haven't found one specific thing that starts it off.
