From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla M18 (Windows; Windows 98; en-US; m18)
BuildID:    2000111808

This page is using a menu on the left and a main-frame on the right. Clicking a 
button on the left is loading a new frameset in the right window.
The Problem: you click on a button and the frameset is loading on the right. 
Click another button WHILE the frameset is still loading is stopping the loading 
process and restarting loading the not yet finished frameset instead of the new 
clicked frameset. 
The Result: as long as the complete frameset (by clicking a button) is not 
loaded you can't change the frames anymore. You can click any button you like 
Mozilla is always loading the same frame again and again. Only waiting untill 
everything is loaded makes the buttons on the left work again.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. in the left menu frame click on "Seminare"
2. while page is loaded click on any other left menu button
3. Mozilla is reloading the right frame but is still trying to get the  

Actual Results:  I got the wrong page. I got the page for "Seminare" not the 
page I selected from the left sided menu

Expected Results:  I expected to get the page of the button I clicked last and 
not first.

Same bug on Linux too. Seems to be OS-independent

still present in trunk build 2001012504 using NT.

additional example url:
also effected are nearly all the framesets within their account access
pages because something on their website never finishes downloading (no
idea what, but the throbber never stops by itself.)

apparent duplicates: 50246, 62866 and possibly 61557 but I can't reach it's
testcase (no such host according to my dns). Of the four this one has the best
