this is probably the same as bug 403566
So it's tech evang?
That or addressing the underlying bug somehow, which is nontrivial. Opera 9.50 beta 1 also seems to be affected by this. I bet Seamonkey and other Gecko based browsers are also affected, since the MSN ad code specifically looks for "firefox" in the UA. Turns out IE7 also throbs forever if you don't close an open document, but the MSN ad code does something completely different for IE. Safari doesn't seem to be affected, though at least with my test case, the results of .write()s don't show up till you call .close(). I don't know how correct this is.

While SeaMonkey indicates that the page has not finished loading, I did get a page displayed that looks complete. This was while using the actual UA for my version of SeaMonkey, without spoofing any other UA.
