Here's a quick test page with more compact instructions. There is no
form action but the behavior is reproducible.
Using Firefox with a LibX edition enabled that is configured with
1. Access <http://hopper.cdlib.org/~stoub/longform.html>
The page cuts off midstream. When I just tested, it was cutting off at
9,084 words (61,242 characters)
2. In Firefox, disable the LibX extension.
3. Restart Firefox.
4. Access <http://hopper.cdlib.org/~stoub/longform.html>
All 10,000 words (67,399 characters), ending with "...nascetur ridiculus."
