Folks,
There are certain websites that keep reloading again and again, like forever...
as an example I am going to give you this ibm job site...

http://careers.peopleclick.com/Client40 ... areers.htm

let me know if there is a fix... or the problem is with the website itself... (it does load ok on netscape/ie)
thanks
-Manish

There's a lot of scroll bars on this page you listed.

Does the page reload without you doing anything?
Does it only reload after you select and scroll up or down?

If so, do you have an intellimouse and intellipoint software/drivers?

Installed firefox 0.9.3 on 2 different machines. One PC (W2K Proff) displays the reload problem, the other not (W2K Serv). Have tried enabling/disabling: Javascript/Java/Images, but it doesn't make a difference.
Seems that on one install firefox gets the meta tag: "refresh" wrong. Time is 800 sec, but the reload happens every 8 sec.

Some sample pages where the problem happens (on this one install):
http://www.cope.es
http://www.abc.es
http://www.hola.com

Hope this helps
Michael

Another webpage where perpeptual reload occurs:

https://createpdf.adobe.com/index.pl?BP=NS6&LOC=en_US
again I just clicked on a link in my browser (actually adobe pdf document in my browser) and it opened this page... and I did nothing after that. It kept reloading the page even when I click stop, until I changed the webpage.

I now have the java script error reported by javascript console:

Error: [Exception... "'Permission denied to get property XULElement.selectedIndex' when calling method: [nsIAutoCompletePopup::selectedIndex]" nsresult: "0x8057001e (NS_ERROR_XPC_JS_THREW_STRING)" location: "JS frame :: https://createpdf.adobe.com/index.pl?BP=NS6&LOC=en_US :: loginFocus :: line 25" data: no]
Source File: https://createpdf.adobe.com/index.pl?BP=NS6&LOC=en_US
Line: 25

Now can anyone help me or others make sense out of this.

Try a nightly build (of the 1.7/Firefox0.9 branch). Do you then still see this perpetual reloading?

edit:
I see that when I resize the window, the page gets reloaded.
I know there are certain themes out there which causes somehow a windows resize on page load. Maybe that's causing the perpetual reloading?

Same problem here and I'm really tired of getting links to go and fetch the solution. This browser has more holes in it then swiss cheese

Windows XP, Firefox 0.9

I am using a Microsoft Intellipoint (optical) mouse (usb).

I come across several pages that reload repeatedly. It appears to be an infinite loop. I am able to see this problem at the IBM webpage listed earlier in this post, as well as several internal pages (intranet).

So far, I can't find any common functionality in these pages by reviewing the page sources. I assume that it's either a JavaScript call from the onLoad() event, or a META tag in the document header.

Guys thanks for confirming/ not confirming the bug.... what is obvious to me is that there exists a perpetual reload problem for certain type of firefox installation-webpage combinations (since not all of us are seeing this for all the webpages we report here about, even with same browser/os), should we file this as a firefox bug, will anyone who has done this before please step forward and let us all know...

I had the problem and solved it. It is theme related, change your theme to the default theme and it will clean it up. I was using the Phoenity theme, now I'm using the Nautical theme and have not had the problem repeat!
