User-Agent:       Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET CLR 1.1.4322; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; InfoPath.1)
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1.7) Gecko/20070914 Firefox/2.0.0.7

On any page, clicking on any link that opens a new popup window using window.open(), will always hang the browser.  All windows including the main and popup windows will hang, and I have to then manually kill the firfox.exe process.

This is consistently reproducible 100% of the time, and has happened with previous builds as well - < 2.0.07

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Navigate to provided URL
2. Click on any "What's this?" link on the page
3. Browser windows hang
Actual Results:  
All browser windows hang and firefox.exe has to be killed and restarted

Expected Results:  
No hang
