I have semi-consistent problems with certain pages, including the
home page and As The Apple Turns (currently at  They get partway
displayed, and then stop.  Sometimes reloading the page will get more done,
other times it won't.  But the bottom status bar marks it as "Done".  This makes
mozilla almost unusable for me.

I have a screenshot and copy of my view page source.  Since I see no way to
attach them, I'm storing them at

I'm seeing behavior similar to this on Linux.  Build ID: 2001061518.

Fairly regularly, pages will only partially load, but the throbber stops and
the status bar will claim that the document load is done.

When I hit reload, it goes back out to the network, the rest of the page is
loaded and rendered.

There doesn't seem to be a particular pattern to when this happens.

Similar problem with

From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.1+) Gecko/20010616
BuildID: 2001061606

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
2.(throbber stops and the status bar will claim that the document load)
3.There will be no change you will still see your current page
4. Note: however, if you do a view source you will see that some (all?)
of the html of the new page has been downloaded
5. Hitting reload does not fix this problem
6. Hitting go (or enter on the url) DOES cause a full page to appear.

(unfortunately, my ISP has some problems with its DNS, which may be the
root cause of this problem, for me. But, I can reproduce it every time, if
some one else can reproduce this problem then I know it not just my setup)

over to Networking for triage. I think there are similar bugs already know.

I'm having the same problems with Netscape 6.1 PR 1.  No such problems with NN 
4.72 or IE 5.  I did a watch on the stream and it looks like this:

Ditto, same problem on Mozilla 0.9.2 (Build 2001062823).

Can't post examples, since I found the bug while developing internal pages. 
Pages load fully on IE and Netscape 4.x, but stop prematurely under Mozilla

On the page where the effect is reproducable, it always dies after 16384
characters (i.e. 2^14)

If you use HTTP/1.0, the bug seems to go away (at least for me)
Edit->Preferences->Debug->Networking->HTTP Version, set to "1.0"

Obviously, reliable performance under HTTP/1.1 would be better, but if you run
into this problem alot, this seems to work around it.

I did some more checking and found that most of my problems involve
incompatibilities with the WebFree control panel
<>.  Turning off all the ad-cleaning options makes
the pages show up properly (sigh).  I have reported the problem to the
programmer and hope he'll update for compatibility.  Thanks for the attention to
this problem!

i have seen similar problems with 3 sites esp.: and  . the first two are on the
same server and use the same system (the programmer is Tal Cohen,
). all 3 are php based web site. this happens esp. when loading very long pages
(in the frst two) or following certain links (in the 3rd)

I see this all the time, as well. Not only when browsing to the outside world, but also 
when talking to an Apache 1.3.x server on my LAN. Most pages (including bugzilla) end 
up loading nothing at all, so I see the "fake" empty source when I view source on 
them. This happens with both Netscape 6.2 and Moz 1.0RC1.

Further, once I've gotten an incomplete page back, clearing the disk and memory 
cache don't force the page to reload, but seem to be get the exact same result if I 
try to reload the page.

Switching to HTTP 1.0 and turning off persistant connections seems to help. I get 
complete pages more frequently, but not always. It takes the percentage of 
incomplete pages down from about 90% to maybe 30%.

Exactly as comment 13 says Both Moz and Netscape 6.2 does this.  All other 
browsers on my Mac work fine on every page Moz and NS 6.2 fail to load.

Interesting that I can consistently reproduce this experience of "partial page
loads" when I go to a job board called FlipDog.   For example try visiting:

The page will fill partially.

Then use the Windows Internet Explorer, and the page fully loads.

Is Flip Dog following MS Internet Explorer guidelines, and Mozilla may deviate
just a little.   It is different enough that some pages don't load fully, or
java scripts misbehave.   

    It is hard to job hunt this way.

This bug is too old, and lacks any real data that we could give Darin.
