Description

18 years ago
In builds from about a month ago, the "load" event would fire even if the user 
pressed the stop button to stop the document before it completed.  Now, it only 
fires when the page is fully loaded.  The DOM spec says that "The load event 
occurs when the DOM implementation finishes loading all content within a 
document", but it seems like it should still fire when the stop button is 
pressed.  Either that, or the "abort" event should fire instead (it doesn't 
right now).

This bug has been marked "future" because the original netscape engineer
working on this is over-burdened. If you feel this is an error, that you or
another known resource will be working on this bug,or if it blocks your work
in some way -- please attach your concern to the bug for reconsideration.

I believe this is not a valid bug.
According to the DOM 2&3 the abort events should fire only on
HTMLObjectElements.

Actual, from D3E (https://dvcs.w3.org/hg/dom3events/raw-file/tip/html/DOM3-Events.html#event-type-abort) abort event should be fired only for Element, but its look like missing some other possibility:
https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=25210

The same situtation is for error event, D3E (https://dvcs.w3.org/hg/dom3events/raw-file/tip/html/DOM3-Events.html#event-type-error) list only Element, but this event is fired for Window too. 

At now only IE support abort event.
