From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; m18) Gecko/20010127
BuildID:    2001012708

The page fails to load completely.  On one occasion, Windoze closed the browser
with an illegal operation error, but I reflexively clicked 'close' rather than
copying the debugging info Windoze gave me.  

Talkback was not triggered, however I am fairly certain I was running the
talkback build.  More typical behavior is a simple failure of the page to load

Internet Exploiter loads the front page, and all pages accessible from it, in a
manner without obvious problems.  

Have not tried earlier versions or other operating systems; do not have access
to the later; will try seamonkey and post an 'additional comment' in any event
once this bug is submitted.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to the linked site using the latest nightly build under Win98 SE with
1024x768x32 color graphics.  

Actual Results:  Page failed to load and on one occasion crashed.

Expected Results:  Load the page properly.

The page in question, BTW, could be quite ideal for debugging as it seems to
make use of a lot of custom DHTML.

Page in question does NOT load properly under Seamonkey (same graphics
settings).  However, responsiveness of other windows seemed better under
Seamonkey while the page was attempting to load.

Wrong component (Plug-ins). I don't see any plugins on the page but rather some 
javascript. Over to javascript for investigation.

The error I discovered was not with the page itself, but with a java applet
loaded from the page to play the game.  I set it as plugins since Java is a
plugin.  Since I may be in error, I have not changed it back; feel free to do so
if appropriate.

Actually, this looks like outdated HTML. The site uses outdated  
browser-sniffing code in 

var n = (document.layers) ? 1:0
var ie = (document.all) ? 1:0

and then has functions like this:

function init() {
    for (i = 0; i <= boxes-1; i++) {
      setTimeout("gravity(" + i + ")",i*250);

function redrawInit() {
// derived from Webmonkey CSS fix.  Modified for use on ASMBLR, Mar 15, 2000
 if (n) {
   document.ASMBLR = new Object;
   document.ASMBLR.redraw = new Object;
   document.ASMBLR.redraw.winWidth = window.innerWidth;
   document.ASMBLR.redraw.winHeight = window.innerHeight;
   window.onresize = redraw();

Since NN4.7 supported layers, but Mozilla does not, this code never gets
executed on Mozilla. Reassigning to Evangelism component.

Um...  sorry for my comment about a game.  When I posted that comment, I was
thinking this was another bug I submitted regarding troubles with Yahoo! games.

So can we close this bug?

Well, since this is evangelism right now, I am just adding some notes:

* It's not not difficult to update

Basically the function shiftTo(obj, x, y) needs support to the Standards mode.
For the N4.x code fork, the code is using document.object.moveTo(x,y).. for the
is_gecko code fork I recommend something more like:


I also recommend to use the Ultimate Client Sniffer

This way will be easy to evaluate is_gecko.

* Author information is in the code
view-source to contact.

It doesn't seem to work correctly.  Teh bouncing cubes make it window bounce as
well.  Opened page in a tab.  Also, other programs become very slugish.
