After dragging in multiple images into composer the browser and composer became
unstable.  I went to and dragged some of
the box art images into the composer window.  After dragging in about four of
the pictures composer would not let me browse the page I was editing.  

Also the browser started acting funny, whenever I clicked on a link nothing
would happen.  When I moved the mouse after clicking on a link then the stop
button and throbber would disappear.  If I put the pointer where the stop button
should be then it would reappear and I could click on stop.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open Netscape Browser
2.Open Comopser
3.Switch to the browser window and make it small enough to see the composer
window in the background.
4.Go to on one of the box art links and drag the image into composer and close
the image pop up window.
6.Repeat step 5 until you have 5 images in the window
7.Click on the browse button in the toolbar and save the changes.

Actual Results:  The page never comes up once you click on the browse button. 
If you close out of Netscape completely (browser and composer) then the program
will still be in the task list even though you do not see it open.  This problem
does not happen with a lot of large image files that are local, only with image
files that are loaded from the web.

Expected Results:  I would expect that the browser and composer would not become
unstable because of the pictures being added to the document.

Can you clarify a little here?  When I go to the indicated URL I only see one
image.  Are you clicking in turn on each of the items on the left, then dragging
the image that appears?

And I need a clarification on dragging, like: how are you doing it?  If I click
on the image and drag, I get a selection in the browser window; the image
doesn't drag (I didn't know we supported image D&D, thought that had been
LATERed).   Is there some trick to it?  Or is this a platform-parity issue? (in
which case, we'll either need to find some other way to reproduce this problem,
or it needs to go to someone who works on a platform where they can reproduce this).

What I am doing is clicking on the link to bring up the pop-up window and then
single clicking on the image and dragging the image to the composer window.

For example:
Click on the first link in the list which is "WING W-GUNDAM 0 ZERO CUSTOM 1/144"
and then click on the image in the pop-up window one time and then drag it to
the composer window.  After that you close the pop-up window and repeat with the
next link which would be "TALLGEESE III (Three) 1/144".  After that go down the
list of links for about 5 images total and repeat the steps, then the browser
and composer should be unstable at that point.

Thanks for the explanation!
What happened to me was that after I had inserted 4 of the images, when I
clicked on the fifth link to get the fifth popup window (I'd been dismissing all
the earlier popups) before clicking on the next link), the browser hung and the
popup window never appeared.

I killed the app, and the stack said this:

... and then gdb went into an apparent infinite loop (or maybe it was trying to
dump core) and I had to kill it to get control of my machine back.

I tried this with a page full of thumbnails, and I easily inserted all the
thumbnails without any problem.  So I'm guessing it has to do with the
cumulative size of all the images (possibly an imagelib memory leak?)  The
indicated page's images are large for inlined images, but they're not
excessively huge by the standards of web images.

I don't know what to do with this bug.  It's certainly not a composer issue.  I
doubt it's even a backend issue; more likely somewhere like imagelib or content.
 But how do we pin it down to figure out who owns the problem?

This must be something in the way we're storing images.  The editor doesn't
store any persistent image data.
