"well this is embarrassing" screen only appears sometimes. I.e. it did not come up last time (when I filed this bug report)
Problem seems specific to firefox 31.2.0 ie on another machine Mozilla Firefox 24.8.0 (uname -a Linux 2.6.32-431.29.2.el6.x86_64 #1 SMP Tue Sep 9 13:45:55 CDT 2014 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux ) behaves ok with gmail. On the original machine Mozilla Firefox 31.1.0 behaves ok with gmail (https://mail.google.com/mail/....) Bill

hmm another random idea;-) Firefox always starts with my home page http://www.cs.ucl.ac.uk/staff/W.Langdon/ but at present it contains a link which does not complete but takes a very long time to time out. May be failure of some down loads to complete is related to firefox still waiting for missing image to timeout? Bill
hmm to confirm it also happens with Firefox ESR 31.1.0 (I have another gmail example today) Bill
Created attachment 8514265 [details] bugzilla_1090200_embarrassing.png screen shot of opening firefox message When the problem is manifest on closing firefox I get a caution box saying (something like) "cancel download_1", when I accepted it firefox shuts down. When I immediately restart firefox I get usually get a box saying "Firefox is already running, but is not responding. To open a new window, you must first close the existing Firefox process, or restart your system". After a few more attempts firefox usually restarts, sometimes with a "well this is embarrassing" message. I am attaching a screenshot of it.
Created attachment 8514274 [details] bugzilla_1090200_cancel_1_download.png screen short of caution box on shutdown It looks like the non-termination of loading my home page http://www.cs.ucl.ac.uk/staff/W.Langdon/ on start up was a red-herring. Ie I have commented out the load of image on a site which is offline so the start page quickly completes but today's problem with gmail continues. I am uploading a screen shot of an example warning which occurred on clean shutdown (using power off icon) of firefox. Bill
Now running Firefox ESR 31.3.0 gmail version not known This download problem has not been seen for some weeks. Bill
