Description

17 years ago
Overview: Loading the page referenced in the URL above ceases, and "Document:
Done" is displayed in status bar, while processing <iframe> tag with SRC
pointing to an external web site (in this case, a doubleclick advertisement). 
The main body of the page is never loaded or displayed.

Viewing page source also loads the page only as far as the first <a> anchor tag
within the <iframe>, stopping right before the line which contains the closing
</iframe> tag.

Additional Info:
Here are the last three lines of the HTML that Mozilla loads.  

<nolayer>
<iframe
SRC="http://ad.doubleclick.net/adi/idg.us.javaworld/;pos=top;sz=468x60;tile=1;ord=08160324?"
width="468" height="60" frameborder="no" border="0" MARGINWIDTH="0"
MARGINHEIGHT="0" SCROLLING="no">
<a
HREF="http://ad.doubleclick.net/jump/idg.us.javaworld/;abr=!ie;pos=top;sz=468x60;tile=1;ord=08160324?">

I just checked and the problem does not occur on this page:
http://www.javaworld.com/javaworld/jw-11-2000/jw-1103-mp3_p.html
(which is a "printer-friendly" version of the above-listed URL), and contains an
IFRAME which is rendered without a problem.  Sorry I didn't discover the key
difference between the pages that triggers this bug.

Steps to Reproduce:
Attempt to view the first URL listed above, or to view the source of the same page.

Build Date and Platform:
I am using Linux i686 Build ID 2001030608 on Redhat 7.0.  I am also accessing
the net through a proxy but I doubt that is relevant though it causes other
known bugs of course.

I was unable to determine if this duplicates a current bug.  Sorry, this is my
first bug report and I will try to investigate further next time.
The page loads fine for me with a 2001-03-08 build on Linux....

OK, I just downloaded and tried the 03-08 build and have the same problem.  

Only noticable difference is that it now says "Transferring data from
a301.g.akamai.net" on the status bar instead of "Done", but the progress bar
indicates that it is no longer loading, though the pointer-arrow cursor has
replaced the wristwatch(as before).

As mentioned before, I access the net through a proxy.  Are you?  Don't know if
this is a useful clue.

I not have a problem with the page loading in the March 20 build. However, the
netscape throbber continues to cycle even after the page is completely display.
The page's code includes several layer tags which may be a issue.
