I have experienced this problem with both 1.7.12 and 1.7.13. I am running Java  Java 1.5.0_06. I have disabled any special javascript at Wikipedia so that should not be an issue. 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Edit an article

Actual Results:  
2. All of the Wikipedia toolbar buttons except for 1 fail to load. 
3. Wikipedia stops responding, and I get "Operation timed out when trying to contact wikipedia.org" for the next 3-5 minutes.

Expected Results:  
Load everything on the page properly, and not interfere with the operation of the site.

This happens when you just load the edit page or when you submit the changes?

FYI, 1.7.13 is the final release of the Mozilla Suite.  Please upgrade to SeaMonkey (http://www.mozilla.org/projects/seamonkey/) or Firefox and see if what you're seeing persists.
Version: unspecified → 1.7 Branch

This happens when I load the edit page, before I can commit any changes. I think its related to the code in the toolbar, since when I disable that, I don't have any problems.
