by the way, I ran it again. when FF is not displaying a stop script dialog, it's displaying a wait cursor. please fix quickly.

the code I used to have had no timers, just recursion. but just the same, the code was bad enough that it I was desperate enough to fix the code and now it works, but alas, that means I have no buggy bad recursive code to submit to mozilla. Bug 331658 is somewhat similar in that the basis is bad code, but that's the only similarity. I have no timers in my code and I'm sure if I still had that code it would still essentially make ff useless and uncontrollable. essentially what the bug was I think was it was inserting elements all the while it was trying to traverse them, and this was the mistake (and using recursion to do it). I will attach my fixed code so you may see the repaired version. I am sorry I do not have the broken code. I guess if I am not tired I could maybe rewrite it so it matches the description I listed. there was something about the code I used that was particularly bad... I will try to write a testcase and see what happens.
Created attachment 509710 [details] js source of correctly working code. will try to submit code that messes up ff
I give up. I have no idea how to replicate my original buggy code. setting to resolved->fixed because I don't know any other way to close the bug.
