iframes src randomly copies other iframes srcs, better: the loaded page refers to another iframes src

Big explanation on the given page, compare with 2.0 for reference

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Load the given page
Actual Results:  
dynamically created iframe loads wrong page?
static iframes load wrong pages?

Expected Results:  
show the correct page

reassigning the iframes srcs to itself fixes the issue, you'll get the report on that from the given page (alert before fix, so you may see it better)

i would say (without knowing the code-base) the iframes srcs are collected in a non-protected pending-downloads-list, or the locks position is slightly wrong, giving back the response from the request before or after

I tried to open that page in Fx2 and Fx3. Fx2 crashed, and Fx3 hanged.

For the record, Webkit render it messy but doesn't crash. Opera 9.5 and IE7 caused a blue screen of death...

My Opera crashed too, I assume it has to do with the Netscape-Style-Plugin of WMP, possibly the Plugin tries to take advantage of some NS-only feature.?

That your IE7 crashes is a surprise to me, that it shows a blue screen is near unbelievable. I havn't seen that except for corrupt hardware since years.

If you prefer I replace the video by a Quicktime-variant, in the hope your Quicktime-Plugin doesn't behave that way. Please let me know.
I was surprised as you. I never had a blue screen with Windows XP caused by a program execution. I have got a bit of nostalgia...

If you can replace the video with a Theora-Vorbis-Matroska version I feel better, since normally I use VLC and its mozilla plugin, if this isn't a problem for you :-)
Ah, I forgot to ask you: videos are necessary? Can't you embed some text pages, for example?

I'm trying to load the test URL but getting time outs.  I think we need a test case attached or we might as well close or dupe against bug 279048

Firefox suffered several multi-second hangs plus high CPU usage, finally Fx became responsive again. The page never stopped loading (spinning throbber) and the layout was broken, but at least, the page was browseable. 

Using Adblock Plus, Stylish -, and Flashblock.
Reporter, are you still seeing this issue with Firefox 3.6.13 or later in safe mode or a fresh profile? If not, please close. These links can help you in your testing.
