Description

8 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; OpenBSD amd64; en-US; rv:1.9.2.13) Gecko/20101210 Firefox/3.6.13
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; OpenBSD amd64; en-US; rv:1.9.2.13) Gecko/20101210 Firefox/3.6.13

Visiting http://www.woodtv.com causes firefox and X to freeze for many seconds before returning to normal.  If you leave a tab open on the site, it will continue to freeze/unfreeze sporadically.

This does not happen on Windows.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Visit http://www.woodtv.com
2. Watch your browser freeze
3. Watch your browser unfreeze
No freeze for me with Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:2.0b9pre) Gecko/20101227 Firefox/4.0b9pre. Can you please update your flash player and create a new profile and test again? http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Managing profiles

I am not running Windows.  I also stated that it works fine with Windows.
I never said you were running windows. Did you do what I had suggested?

I do not have a flash player installed
Alright then, did you create a fresh profile?

Yes.  Here is an explanation from an X developer.

Even though the X server should probably behave nicer in front of
this, this is one more site that exposes this long standing Firefox
bug or mis-behaviour where it sends full-resolution versions of the
images it displays to the X server for *nothing* as far as I know.

Create a 10000x10000 uniform jpeg image, display it on a web page
using width="100" height="100". It will probably make the X server
explode more or less badly, while the scaling of the image is done in
the firefox process, not the X server.

The site loads fine with the xxxterm web browser, which uses webkit to render the site.
