Description

3 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:33.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/33.0 SeaMonkey/2.30
Build ID: 20141013232806

Steps to reproduce:

memory utilization peak


Actual results:

In Windows, when the memory utilization reach picks (eg. 4-500,000kb) the web navigation slow completely down, some web sites don't load, dialogs to select files for upload or 'save as' don't open, same for the download manager that doesn't pop up.

Session restore implementation could somehow matter as closing the browser and restoring the session don't reverse the browser behavior fixing the issues.


Expected results:

Sorry, the behavior seems to be caused by NoScript plugin, but it is something to verify better.

The situation is a little chaotic running inside a virtual machine.

I verified and it seems not a problem of Noscript neither.

And I observered Safari having the same kind of problem. So it seems more 
related to the system or virtual machine environment.

I'm using VirtualBox 4.3.18 for Linux.
