Browsing to a Microsoft 2003 Server Distributed File System (DFS) of the form:


will cause Firefox to hang.

Occurs whether it's a bookmark imported from IE, or entered directly. Tried
various combinations of file:// syntax. Sometimes, the first directory lists
happily enuf, but clicking a listed directory induces the hang.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add a bookmark to a DFS share in IE
2. Import the IE bookmarks
3. Click the imported bookmark; freeze occurs immediately or within one level of
directory content selection.

Actual Results:  
No response to user clickable elements in Firefox; 'Program Not Responding'
messagebox from Win2K prompting to end task.

Expected Results:  
Not become frozen.

Using Qute theme. I'll update this bugzilla entry if default theme acts differently.
