Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: Just try to open: http://blackboard.binghamton.edu/ -- For the other direct link, a username & password is needed! And if you need to test a patch/fix, I can test it using my username/password. -- Also, just try to open www.alrai.com, and the browser will hang! Actual Results: Nothing! Just hanging! Expected Results: Open the page! I've similar problem with an Arabic site, http://www.alrai.com, but it seems to be somthing with the HTML page itself, than the use of Arabic in the page. Because I can access other Arabic pages without any issues. If you try accessing the www.alrai.com, the browser will HANG, and you will need to KILL the browser. The same problem repreduces on Linux too. And as before everything works fine on Netscape 7.2 & IE.
It seems that the problem is because of the new "SurfControl" that my company is using. Because for each URL the browser will be redirect to the SurfControl software then back to the original URL. Somehow when using FireFox and going to blackboard.binghamton.edu, it will be redirected to: http://blackboard.binghamton.edu/webapps/login Instead of: http://blackboard.cc.binghamton.edu/webapps/portal/frameset.jsp Also, the same problem is repreducing with IE => so it seems that it is a SurfControl problem!
