    onload alert() freezes Firefox 9.0.1 on Mac

    Hi everyone,

    Can anyone else reproduce this issue in Firefox 9.0.1 on Mac? When Firebug 1.8.4 is enabled, the following HTML page freezes and the alert cannot be dismissed:

    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <script type="text/javascript">
    function pageLoaded() {
    alert("onload alert works in Firefox 8.0.1 on Mac and in 9.0.1 on Windows, and in other browsers, but it freezes Firefox 9.0.1 on Mac when Firebug 1.8.4 is enabled.");

    <body onload="pageLoaded()">
    Testing alert onload

    When Firebug is not enabled, the alert works as expected. Firefox 9.0.1 + Firebug 1.8.4 works fine for me on Windows 7.

    Thanks in advance for any feedback on this,

    FireBug for Mac might be the issue. Contact FireBug developers and file a bug report. The next version might have this fixed.
