Internet Explorer search hangs

Hi,

The search function in IE 6 seems to hang on some web pages. I can reproduce
it (almost) every time e.g., with this page: go to
http://pn.webblogg.se/m_032005.html , press control-F to invoke the Search
dialog, type bolibomba into the textbox, and click on the Search button.
Click on the Search button two more times, and it hangs. The only way to
close the browser is to kill it from the Task Manager.

I'm running Internet Explorer 6 with latest patches on Win XP Home.

Can anyone else reproduce this? Any known patch/fix/workaround?

Regards,
Sami

Hi Sami,

I don't know if this helps, but I got the same thing. It happens with other
words too, but not with some--I'm wondering if it has something to do with
the length of the words. At any rate, you're not alone. :-)

Thanks for your replies.

It is good to know that I'm not the only one seeing this. I also tried it on
a fresh install of XP home (nothing else than patches installed), and it
hangs the same way: IE hangs with 99% CPU utilization and won't exit until I
kill it. I think it's likely a plain old bug in IE's search function rather
than a case of malware.

I've reposted this on microsoft.public.windows.inetexplorer.ie6.browser
(please post any replies there).

I don't know about that Sami, I've never encountered that problem on any
other site, long words or short.
