Description

8 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.1; en-GB; rv:1.9.1) Gecko/20090624 Firefox/3.5
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.1; en-GB; rv:1.9.1) Gecko/20090624 Firefox/3.5

When a torrent is being downloaded at full speed, Firefox tends to not fully render pages properly, normally resulting in a white page with standard black and blue text, with no CSS etc. apparent. 

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download any torrent.
2. Navigate to a couple of URLs, sometimes tend to be those that are heavier in html, java etc.
The CSS,JS files can not be loaded because your are hitting a timeout.
Why should this be a Firefox bug ?

It is a Firefox bug, this happens ONLY in Firefox, not in IE or Chrome. It simply does not render the pages properly for some reason.
Reporter, are you still seeing this issue with Firefox 3.6.12 or later in safe mode? If not, please close. These links can help you in your testing.
