Description of problem:
works fine. there is some discussion that seems to indicate this is a
repeatable problem here:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEL4/5 x86_64 firefox 1.5.x
reproducible every time.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. load http://extjs.com/deploy/ext/docs/index.html in x86_64 firefox build
2. load http://extjs.com/deploy/ext/docs/index.html in i686 firefox build
the 32 bit browser loads correctly, while the 64 bit browser either takes
forever to finally load, or never actually loads.
consistent behavior between 64 and 32 bit browsers.
F7 firefox 2.0.x x86_64 is not affected by this problem.

backtrace of 64 bit firefox
Surely it works perfectly on firefox 2.* with FC7, and firefox 1.5* on slightly
outdated RHEL5 (220.127.116.11-3) gives me an timeout error webpage.
err, my fault -- all my RHEL systems are i386.
Reporter, is this still reproduceable with the latest upgrade of RHEL?
with firefox-18.104.22.168-11.el5_1 on x86_64 it is slightly better, but still takes
more than 30 seconds to load.
firefox3-3.0-0.beta2.2.el5 on x86_64 loads the test page in 2 seconds.
so it's fixed in firefox3-3.0-0.beta2.2.el5, right?

yes, both firefox 2 and 3 seem to function correctly.
