User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9b5pre) Gecko/2008030604 Minefield/3.0b5pre

With either Noscript or Adblock Plus installed (either one, or both), loading a page with an <applet> that points to a nonexistent file causes a freeze and 100% cpu usage.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Make sure either Adblock Plus or Noscript are installed
2.Load http://lord.nuklear.org/javatest.html

Actual Results:  
Browser froze solid and consumed all of the cpu.

Expected Results:  
Browser should have displayed the applet as a broken link.

I verified this back to 2.0.0.6 also.
