Description

3 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:37.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/37.0
Build ID: 20150402191859

Steps to reproduce:

* Open single or multiple browser windows.
* Browse the internet, multimedia websites and picture websites (youtube, 4chan, imgur) do seem to help reproduce.
* Continue browsing and downloading pictures or videos on hard drive.
* Open multiple TABS on either window.


Actual results:

After certain time browser will no longer make connections to websites, it will return error connecting no matter the website URL.
If using IP addresses numbers certain sites will be reachable but domain names will not work.
Only way to fix: Clear downloads window, close all firefox windows and restart firefox.


Expected results:

Earlier 36 version continued working after several days running without restarting browser. Version 37 appears to have a bug of some sort that affects name resolutions.
