Description

17 years ago
This is a follow-on from bug 57596, where the browser would crash on 
this example. Now, when you click on the text in the example, the 
browser will hang. This only occurs in trunk builds. It does not occur
in the branch builds (and doesn't crash either). 

After going past a couple of assertions in the code, the hang occurs in a 
loop at:
http://lxr.mozilla.org/mozilla/source/layout/html/base/src/
nsBlockFrame.cpp#5472

Steps to reproduce:
1) load http://www.damowmow.com/mozilla/crash/4.html
2) click on the text "Click me to try to float me". 
3) browser will hang in a loop.

20001104nn mac/linux/win32 trunk builds.

No hang using Build 2000122308 installer on Windows 98.  This appears to be fixed.
Hyatt: You fixed this, right? If so please mark it RESOLVED FIXED -- thanks!

Marking worksforme (as hyatt seems bashful to claim credit). 

mac/linux/win32 20000102 builds -- there is no hang; demo floats the text (or
overflow:scroll, or display:inline; or position:absolute).

Verifications.  Tests (if necessary) were done with 2001052504 on Windows 2000.

Please forgive the spam.
