I can't seem to duplicate this with the Bugzilla home page, but I can with http://www.zdnet.com/eweek/stories/general/0,11011,2585114,00.html Build 2000061214, Linux 2.2.14 i686, RedHat 6.1

Reopening, because bug 42270 is marked resolved/fixed, but I still get this bug. Currently I'm seeing two incarnations: 1. Start Mozilla and load http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/ At the top of the page I get: The contents of this file are subject to the Mozilla Public License Version 1.1 (the "license"); you may not use this file except in compliance with the license. and so on, which is part of an HTML comment and shouldn't be displayed. When loading this page a second time (e. g. by pressing the reload button), the comment disappears. 2. I'm going to attach an HTML file which should be rendered as an empty page because it only contains comments in the body. Instead you see: form action="nothinguseful" method="post" and so on. This time it doesn't disappear after reloading. My last CVS checkout was on 13.06.2000, 11:58 UTC. I have built a non-debug and optimized Mozilla in an obj-* subdirectory, if that matters.

It could be a dup of bug 42340 except that it can be reproduced on all platforms. Reassigned to rickg, CCd harishd.

Yes, the description of bug 42340 is exactly what I've seen here and described above - only on Linux, not on the Mac. Maybe the second part (the attached HTML file) is not the same bug, since you don't have to restart the browser to get it again. I don't know. The interesting thing is that if you remove a few lines of x-es in that file, the bug disappears. It seams to depend on the huge amount of content (comment) before that other comment which then gets displayed.
The problem was due to lack of error propagation [ refer to the patch in bug 42340 ], in CComment::Consume().
Fixed in my tree.

Whiteboard: fix in hand
The bugzilla problem was related to a bug in the StrictDTD. This bughas to do with a bug in the parser. The bugzilla issue was resolved (42268) is fixed in my tree awaiting a chance to checkin.

I have tested it (after another checkout) with and without that patch in bug 42270, and it fixes both issues for me. Thanks!
Sorry, I meant the patch attached to bug 42340. It's here: http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/showattachment.cgi?attach_id=10156
