Bear vs. Fox, Fox Loses

Whenever I visit matociquala using Firefox on the Mac (latest version,, the window hangs (spinner stops spinning, nonresponsive to clicks or keyboard). The hang only affects the current window; the application is still responsive, and the window can be closed, but I can't read the rest of the page. The message displayed at the lower left is either "Read" or "Read" and the error console shows several instances of "Error: uncaught exception: Permission denied to call method Location.toString". No problems in Safari on the same machine. Any idea what might be the cause?

ETA: Updated to and it's still the same. But if you use a text size larger than the default, it does not hang. ETA2: During the hang the CPU utilization goes to 100%. I've tried using Firebug but I can't seem to find any way to break out of the loop, if loop it is (you have to insert the breakpoint before execution hits that point, and once the page loads the CPU is too busy to run Firebug).


In a fit of cleaning-out-of-clutter, we have unearthed the following posters. It's a snapshot of fannishness, circa 1976-1984. All are in reasonably good shape, rolled. Hate to just recycle them -- want one? Let us know (especially if you're in Portland).
I also have a print of Kelly Freas "No Costumes" 1984 (signed) -- someone thinks it could be worth $50. Any suggestions as to the best fan fund auction to donate it to?
