Description Jonathan Kamens 2001-10-15 00:40:56 UTC
I have netscape-communicator-4.78-2, glibc-2.2.4-19, XFree86-libs-4.1.0-3, and libstdc++-compat-2.96-24; I doubt most of these are relevant, but I mention them for completeness. If I launch netscape, go to http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/query.cgi, click on any of the items in the "Component" selection box, and type "b" because I want to scroll to the components that start with that letter, Netscape hangs and consumes just about all the CPU it can. I've found that if I save the source for query.cgi into an HTML file and remove "; charset=utf8" from the meta line near the top, the problem goes away. I suppose the bug here is probably in Netscape 4.78 rather than in bugzilla, but considering how widespread Netsacpe 4.78 is on Linux, I really think you need to make bugzilla work with it. Since I don't see any non-ASCII characters on this page, I see no reason why you can't just remove the charset setting. By the way, is there any way for random users like me to examine the change history of the bugzilla that RedHat uses, e.g., is there a CVS repository somewhere I can look at? Such a thing would have assisted me in isolating this bug to provide a useful bug report.

firstname.lastname@example.org says this happens for him as well. Since I'm not the only one with this problem, it strikes me as pretty serious, so I've raised its priority.

Sorry for the delay in looking at this issue. I have commented out the offending line in my header html source. Please post back here stating whether this fixes the problem for you.

Commenting out the meta tag with the charset setting does not appear to be sufficient, at least not the wa you've commented it out. It still hangs for me when I do what I described in my initial bug report. If I save the HTML source output by query.cgi into a file and view the file and perform the same operation, it hangs again. But if I then go into that file and completely delete the commented-out meta tag line, it stops hanging.
Comment 4 David Lawrence 2001-10-18 04:24:18 UTC
I removed the line completely. Let me know if this works better now.
Comment 5 Jonathan Kamens 2001-10-18 09:22:22 UTC
Yup, now it works just fine.
