User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; ja; rv:1.9.2.6) Gecko/20100625 Firefox/3.6.6 GTB7.0 ( .NET CLR 3.5.30729; .NET4.0C)
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; ja; rv:1.9.2.6) Gecko/20100625 Firefox/3.6.6 GTB7.0 ( .NET CLR 3.5.30729; .NET4.0C)

Acrobat JavaScript "this.getURL" is a function by which the web page is loaded.
Now when the PDF file is loaded in the frame page, this.getURL function freezes only Firefox. Even the designated web page is loaded within the frame, you can not do anything. No scroll, no link click, nor no text selection. When you reload the page, this problem disappears.

This bug can not be seen in other browsers such as IE, Safari, Google Chrome, nor Opera.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Please access to the demo page: http://www.broadband-xp.com/test/frame_pdf/test.html
2. In the test1, you will see a PDF within the right frame. Plase click the button in it.
3. You will see the contents of http://www.mozilla.org loaded in the right frame but you can not do anything. Firefox freezes.
Actual Results:  
Even the contents of http://www.mozilla.org is loaded in the right frame, you can not do anything. Firefox freezes.

When you reload it, the problem disappears.

Expected Results:  
No freeze should occur just the same as other browsers such as IE, Safari, Google Chrome, nor Opera.

In order to do this test, you need Adobe Reader. And you need to enable Acrobat JavaScript, and need to display PDF in the browser.

Actually furter tests reveals that a nomarl link in a PDF file (no Acrobat JavaScript releated) within the frame leads Firefox to freeze itself.

I added "test3" in the demo page:

Firefox 3.5.x (including 3.5.10) does not freeze itself in this test page while Fireefox 3.6.x(including 3.6.0) does.

And in Firefox 3.6x when the loaded web pages freezes, if the page has flash movies, those flash movies are not rendered at all. All other texts and images are loaded but they can not be selected and can not be clicked.

As far as I confirmed, this bug does not show up in Firefox 4.0 b1. It is confirmed only in Firefox 3.6.x.
