Description

18 years ago
We have a web site with 2 frames: the left one contains a navigation menu with
links, the right one a page selected via the navigation menu. For pages that use
the <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="5; http://xyz..."> tag, there is the
following problem:

- selecting a link in the navigation menu causes the corresponding page
  to be displayed in the right frame, and every 5 seconds, to be refreshed
- after selecting an other link in the menu, the corresponding page is
  displayed in the right frame
- after 5 seconds, the _first_ page with the refresh tag re-appears in the right
  frame
- the only way to get rid of this, is closing the frameset

Seems like a timer is still active for the refresh, even if a new page got
loaded into the frame.

Robert Ernst, which build did you test this with.
Confirmed in 20000829 WinNT4. Attaching .zip, -> HTMLFrames, nominating nsbeta3 
- this is a silly bug and needs fixing.
