Summary0002699: Googkle home page inacessible in RISC OS NetSurf
DescriptionI use as my home page in RISC OS NetSurf. As from today's test build this no longer works. The URL is followed by a rapidly changing series of digits and never connects. This URL works as expected in Chrome on w10.
Steps To ReproduceTry again!

It is a Javascript thing. With Javascript NetSurf looks to get stuck within an endless hourglass on/off state requiring an alt-Break. It is attempting to connect to http://<number>. Disable Javascript and it is straight in.

FWIW NetSurf 3.10 (Dev CI #4720) is OK.

My report above was with #4832.

It also looks as if this is a RISC OS issue, I do not see the fault on a build on Ubuntu 18.04.

jmb: it is because the redirect happens before the content is complete, so it fetches forever

probably "works" on faster systems because the content completes sooner
