If you go to http://www.alfa.it/, at the bottom of the page, and do a search (the button is called "Cerca"), it freezes :) you have to kill the process (ctrl alt del and kill task under Windows)
Works for me, build 2000-07-24-08 on Windows 98SE. Carrer, can you provide more details please, what build are you using? what text did you write in the search box? Is it repeatable? Thanks.
Works for me with build ID 2000072520 on NT I searched sexe and was presented with a page saying no match found.
Works for me using Build ID: 2000072520 on Windows 98.
WFM on Linux 2000072508. I searched for "ciao".
Oops. Actually I'll confirm this on Linux. Looks like I didn't observe the page long enough. The page painted, but then the browser hung after that. I searched for "ciao" again and the browser hung before painting. It is spinning on the CPU without making any system calls. Interestingly, at the point it hangs, the barber pole reads "539%", or "313%" or some other percentage greater than 100.

I testcased this one on Linux build 2000072508. The search results page at http://www2.alfa.it/cgi-bin/htsearch?words=ciao contains invalid markup. Here is a five-liner that makes mozilla spin: <html> <body> <p "> </body> </html> Note the unbalanced quote. If you balance or remove the quote, the page renders without the crash. Obviously the markup is to blame but Mozilla should handle it gracefully. Reassigning to parser.
