That's Yahoo!'s fault. However, there is no way to stop the "Stop" flashing, clicks on the icon are ignored, and that's SeaMonkey's fault. This is a more general problem, a flashing "Stop" rarely responds to clicks, but this is one perfectly reproducible point from which to troubleshoot that problem. The mouse cursor also flashes while within the page display area, at least, but remains partially usable; some links can be clicked, others cannot. xanthian. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open Yahoo Mail Bera account to, say, the Input page 2. Watch Stop icon (and mouse cursor) flash rapidly. 3. Fail to be able to click "Stop" to regain control. Actual Results: "Stop" and mouse cursor flash rapidly, flashing can't be stopped by slicking "Stop"; many web page links cannot be used because clicking them becomes an no-win race condition. Expected Results: Web page loads with flashing problem, but clicking "Stop" causes (presumed) looping download, flashing of "Stop" and mouse cursor to cease and desist. This is a just released Beta of Yahoo Mail, so problems are expected. SeaMonkey being caught unrecoverably in them is unexpected. I'm marking this as MAJOR because of the loss of ability to click some web page links while the problem persists, which looks like a "loss of function". xanthian.

This site, also, goes into unstoppable flashing mode, and is easier to URL (yahoo mail beta sites require the maintainer to have an account there); this may or may not be the same problem, so I'm going to report it separately as well: http://www.salmonfarmers.org/ The flashing failure does _not_ occur under Internet Explorer 6.0. xanthian.
Kent, do you still see this problem with a current nightly build? http://www.salmonfarmers.org/ WFM Build identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.9a8pre) Gecko/2007091102 SeaMonkey/2.0a1pre
Works for me on trunk.
Thank Arun. => WFM then.
