.xhtml fails intermittently due to link coloring mismatch
We've had two recent tinderbox Rd failures on this test, one on Windows and one on Mac; in both cases, the failure is due to a difference in link coloring between the testcase and reference. The failure looks intermittent, it's not happening on every run. I suspect this may be a regression from the recent landing of bug 461199 or maybe bug 542592. http://tinderbox.mozilla.org/showlog.cgi?log=Firefox/1266466067.1266469285.1733.gz WINNT 5.2 mozilla-central debug test reftest on 2010/02/17 20:07:47 s: win32-slave42 http://tinderbox.mozilla.org/showlog.cgi?log=Firefox/1266482207.1266485601.24560.gz OS X 10.5.2 mozilla-central debug test reftest on 2010/02/18 00:36:47 s: moz2-darwin9-slave14
The async history code doesn't block onload on the link coloring. We should probably just remove the href attributes from those links, or set them to '#' so they don't appear visited, or something.

After a few minutes thinking about whether I had any idea at all which of those choices was better and more future proof (answer: no, no idea), I realized that the problem ought to be susceptible to my skill at randomly mashing on the keyboard. Sadly, the tryserver doesn't suffer from this bug, not being slow enough I guess, but at least it doesn't fail with this.

d'oh, copy-paste error on the URL. Comment 10 should have said: http://tinderbox.mozilla.org/showlog.cgi?log=Firefox/1267152179.1267155345.19738.gz WINNT 5.2 mozilla-central debug test reftest on 2010/02/25 18:42:59 s: win32-slave05
