There was just a post on mozilla.support.seamonkey about a apparently different problem. [STOP button being inoperative on a site]

A reply said:
It seems that the Stop button does not work on long-running scripts,
including malformed JavaScript.  When I encounter this, I use PrefBar to
disable JavaScript.

That prompted me to try
[https://validator.w3.org/nu/?doc=https%3A%2F%2Fmanpages.debian.org%2F]
It reports no error, does report 3 warnings:

    Warning: The type attribute for the style element is not needed and should be omitted.

    From line 7, column 1; to line 7, column 23

    s</title>↩<style type="text/css">↩@font

    Warning: The type attribute is unnecessary for JavaScript resources.

    From line 657, column 1; to line 657, column 31

Is that significant?
Should I file a bug report?

This morning I'd visited a site which required JavaScript.
Without having disabled JavaScript I attempted to visit
https://manpages.debian.org/ .
It never loaded. There were NO error messages.

Hm, worked fine here, although I only have ff (59.0.2) with ublock
(although it's stating nothing was blocked).

The page does load some javascript though -- looks to do something with
the fonts / css, but it's been a while since I've used JS (and I hated
it with a passion back then, most of the offending language has been
scrubbed from my memory with copious amounts of liquor).



I've the "Firefox ESR" that was installed by default.
It loaded  https://manpages.debian.org/ OK.
I don't know if it has JavaScript enabled nor do I know how to check.
Don't know how to verify its version either.
Tried ff a few time in past. Never liked it.

I'll post to SeaMonkey mailing list.
