I tried it twice in FireFox v. 3.0.3.  The first time it came up immediately
with a simple 3 line dialog to the effect that the site was home to many sites,
and should be accessed via those sites, with no apparent probs.  The second
time, it displayed the same error messages which Webkit does, but, apparently,
without the massive memory paging Webkit experiences.

Firefox's, as well as the System's, responsiveness did slow, but it did not
become completely unresponsive.  Webkit would not respond at all to "Command -
period" to stop the page loading, in any of the three accesses I made to the
page with it.  Firefox did respond to "Command - period", stopped page loading,
and I was able to exit the window normally.

[Background] this is the base domain of current Malware attacks on Yahoo!
Answers.  Yahoo!'s handling of the attacks is a whole 'nother story, but, when
suspect sights are seen, I, rather than a Windows user, open them up, to see
what's what.  Webkit/Safari's reaction to this one is a severe blow to it's
"reputation" among Windows users ;) .
