User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.9.1) Gecko/20090624 Firefox/3.5 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729)

I belong to a music club called yourmusic.com.  Firefox version 3.5 will allow me to search for only ONE artist/song/album, and from then on, will display only a blank page after each succeeding search!  This does not happen with Internet Explorer.



Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Go to yourmusic.com
2.Search for artist/song/album.
3.First search results display.
4.Search for second artist/song/album.
5.Result is a blank page.
6.Result #5 continues for every succeeding search.
Actual Results:  
From the second search onward, I was never able to search for any other artist/song/album.

Expected Results:  
I should be able to search for as many artists/songs/albums on yourmusic.com as I wish.

This is the SECOND major bug in Firefox 3.5 that I have found in a few days that is reproducible by others (a person responding to my first report in a Mozillazine "bug" post [faulty renderings of many eBay listings] reported it as Bug #502637), which has currently rendered Firefox 3.5 useless for my purposes.  3.5 was obviously released way too soon!  After posting this, I'm going back to 3.0.11!
I'm not that computer savvy, so can't actually do anything to help you, but I wish to let you know that I have checked to see if any of my add-ons are the cause of this problem, and they aren't.

I hope that 3.5 will soon be ready for public use, as I would have preferred not to go back to 3.0.11.
This may be a "bug" on other search sites, too, but I don't know.  I'm sorry that I can't use "computer speak".
i can confirm that there is an issue on with Fx3.5.0, but using you're mentioned steps 4./5. shows that the issue is not *that* reliable reproducable. unsure if it's a site issue, no errors but just warnings (jQuery related) appear in the error console.

well, on a recent Fx3.5.1 nightly and on MC trunk it works always and shows no blank pages, so a recent bugfix must have resolved this issue.
you can test this yourself by downloading a build from http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/latest-mozilla-1.9.1/ or wait until 3.5.1 is released.

i'm adding "regressionwindow-wanted" KW for myself to search the relevant checkin later.
Severity: major → normal
Summary: Firefox 3.5 won't allow me to search on yourmusic.com! → succeeding searches display blank page on yourmusic.com
Version: unspecified → 3.5 Branch
I have just downloaded 3.5.1 and this "bug" still exists!
In addition, this website now often will no longer even open from Bookmarks.  The name appears in the tab, but just a blank page comes-up.  I was hoping, per comment #3, that 3.5.1 would have fixed this problem.

Please look further into this.  Thank you.
Please forgive my multiple entries.  I just went back to 3.0.11 to double-check, and this problem does not occur with 3.0.11--so the "bug" definitely lies with the 3.5 build series.
My STR:
1) New profile
2) http://www.yourmusic.com/search/index.html?search_type=artists&search_text=&do_search=1 (that's the one I tested with, but pretty much any page on the site will do)
3) Hard reload (ctrl+F5 on Windows)
4) Focus location bar, press enter (a normal page load, not a reload or hard reload)
5) Repeat step 4 a few times, throw in an occasional hard reload

Four different behavior changes, all windows have a changeset that involves speculative parsing. Still need to check individual changesets to make sure.

A reduced testcase would be good.
This problem still exists in build 3.5.2.  I have to use the Add-on "IE Tab" in order to navigate within the noted website, yourmusic.com.
is this still an issue you can reproduce recent 3.5.x (or even 3.6 beta) builds?
