OK, here it is.
I get the same behaviour when going to www.parijs.nl/id/844/Metro.html and try
to scroll down or press End. I'm using firefox-188.8.131.52-1.2.fc5. I have not tried
any firefox package from mozilla.org.
We just updated the Firefox version in Fedora/development from 2.0 to a 3.0
pre-release version, which improves performance, memory usage, and fixes many
bugs and crashes.
Closing as CANTFIX since we aren't fixing bugs filed against 2.0 now that 3.0 is
in. If this bug is still present in rawhide using a Firefox 3.0 version, please
re-open this bug.
Thanks and Happy Holidays
