+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #620218 +++

Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.6; rv:2.0b9pre) Gecko/20101217 Firefox/4.0b9pre ID:20101217030324

Seen this today while reading some posts on the Google Chrome Releases blog. Loading the page given in the URL field uses about 1GB of memory (that's the remaining physical memory on my box) and hang the browser for about 15 seconds.

Looks like it is related to some Javascript code, which get run on this site. Disabling JS solves this issue.
Not sure what this bug is about but I think you have it created accidentally.

According to Boris on Bug 620218 
I set Wanted flags when I created that bug. All I did was "clone", bugzilla set the wanted flags. (note to self, don't use clone again ;-)
Severity: critical → normal
Summary: Loading a web page hangs browser (>1GB of additional memory usage) when javascript.options.strict enabled and any console service is attached → bugzilla sets 'wanted' flags when you clone a bug.

I've been searching, trying to find a bug filed for this but can't find it. I don't think this is a bmo bug, it's a Bugzilla bug, so moving.

The issue is that all custom fields are pre-populated with the data from the cloned bug (which is technically correct) without regard for the reporter's credentials and permissions. They can't be edited either.

No, this is not a Bugzilla bug. Everyone is free to edit custom fields on bug creation, independently of his privs. The pseudo-flags discussed in this bug do not exist upstream. It's a bmo customization.

Can you please re-verify this is still a problem? A fix was pushed out recently that fixed custom field values not displaying properly for enter_bug.cgi which could have also caused this problem.

Still an issue, I just cloned bug 637542 (didn't actually submit) and the final+ blocking was the value in the blocking2.0 field.

If you want me to actually submit a test bug, I can do that too (then again, so can you).

Still an issue with current code. Will need to investigate further.
