1. Visit http://nightly.webkit.org/start/trunk/142133
2. Reload the page 3 times.
After the third reload the page will never load again until Safari/WebKit are quit and relaunched.
I don't think this is a duplicate of the very old https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=19420
I can reproduce this on at least two machines/users.
It seems to happen on pages with dynamic HTML.
Sample provided, but it's not really hanging, just blank.
10.8.2, Version 6.0.2 (8536.26.17, 537+)
I tried but was unable to reproduce this problem. My configuration is similar but not identical.
Just reproduced it on a fairly bare-bones third computer using the exact link http://nightly.webkit.org/start/trunk/142133 and reloading three times. After the third reload the page goes blank.
Not all pages exhibit the problem.
I also switched to a different network. Same problem
I asked a far-away friend to try. Same problem.

Movie of the blank reload
Watch the attached movie to see version, time, and date reproducing the event.
What browser extensions do you have installed? Have you tested without them?
Just to clarify my setup:
-> No browser extensions installed anywhere.
-> I downloaded the current nightly build to perform the test on all the computers.
-> All computers are up to date to 10.8.2.
-> Stock-Safari works fine on all systems.
-> Reloading the URL in the movie (and in the bug report) reproduces the problem *almost* always.
-> There's nothing in Console.app about the issue.
-> I've tried a variety of computers and networks.
I do have Flash installed on all systems, and have silverlight installed on most systems.
I can reproduce 100% reliably.
This appears to be fixed on two of my systems now.
Bisecting shows that this got fixed by <http://trac.webkit.org/changeset/142707>.
Unsure what to think about it though. Does this mean that main resource loading no longer takes this code path, but the bug still exists for subresources?
I don't know enough to say. Sorry.
This bug, exactly as described by this report, reappeared in WebKit 143213. Sorry.
Three reloads kills it. The only way out is to quit/re-run WebKit.app.
Who can reproduce this?
It's intermittent. I reproduced it a few times today.
I can not reproduce now.
Are you saying that you reloaded nightly start page three times after that? This bug tracks this specific scenario, not any instances of pages going blank. Yesterday, there was an entirely different bug with blank pages, bug 110368.
No, It happens at random times and random sites. I haven't seen a pattern.
I've marked this as resolved. I'll reopen it if I can get it to happen again at other URLs. The initial problem is definitely fixed, though! Thank you!
