Description

17 years ago
Particularly when scrolling with the scroll wheel, I find that Mozilla hangs hard.  The computer 
has to be rebooted -- [CTRL][ALT][DEL] is the only keystroke to which Windows will respond (the 
mouse pointer disappears).  While opening a new tab or sometimes just loading a page will provoke 
this kind of a freeze, giving the mouse wheel a good workout, perhaps especially while the page is 
still loading, is a really good way to provoke this freeze.

Build Bar forum participants on 
MozillaZine report seeing similar freezing:

...in 
Win2000
http://www.mozillazine.org/talkback/read.php?f=4&i=622&t=606

...in 
Win98 SE
http://www.mozillazine.org/talkback/read.php?f=4&i=642&t=606

...in 
builds as recent as 
Thursday's:
http://www.mozillazine.org/talkback/read.php?f=4&i=656&t=606

Mozilla 
freezes typically in the midst of redrawing the screen (the bottom line of the screen will be 
repeated and/or broken up).  The moust pointer vanishes.  Windows stops responding to 
keystrokes.  You must reboot.

Pre-Christmas nightly builds were behaving well.  Around New 
Year's, they became wildly unstable for me, hanging often.  They have improved since then, but the 
problem does exist.  Pre-Christmas, I can't remember this ever happening -- Mozilla hasn't hung or 
crashed hard enough to force me to reboot in ages.

Build 2002011103 does this fairly reliably.  Builds from January 4th and January 7th were, as I 
recall, even worse.

Adding crash keyword.  Please remove it if I've guessed incorrectly about what it's for.
Keywords: crash

Comment 3

Yes, I see this as well. It doesn't matter how the page is scrolled, page
up/down or scrollbars seem to cause a system hang.

I've had this with every build after 0.9.7 I tried, but I'm not sure how recent
the first one was.

The most recent build that I tried was 2002012505. Same problem.

I also get a crash next time I start the browser up. This isn't picked up by
Talkback (I don't think it has a chance to start up, if you start with console
you only see the first two lines)

The standard Windows crash box says:

MOZILLA caused an invalid page fault in

I'm on Windows 95, and I always get talkback ZIP builds (although my 0.9.7
fallback build is SVG)

It was suggested on #mozillazine that deleting localstore.rdf might help. It didn't.

could 101055, 123196 or 117724 be related?

This *still* happens with 0.9.8.

Comment 5

17 years ago
Yes, this bug seems strongly interconnected with 117724 . Can everybody 
affected here try to reproduce the the test case there. That bug has quite
similar crashes during scrolling, also appeared between 0.9.6 and 0.9.7, still 
is unconfirmed because it triggers only on particular PC hardware (for me it's 
a SIS-730S based mainboard) but all Microsoft OS. It would be great to find 
out, what hardware is affected. And in 0.9.8+ the problem is still present.

Comment 7

I think this is an interaction with the hardware acceleration somehow.

I have an ATI Mach 64 card, and with acceleration set to full, the problem is there.

If I turn the acceleration down to "Basic Accelerator Functions" or "None" the
problem goes away.

When the card is in the levels of acceleration without a crash, scrolling is
noticably worse than the levels with a crash - suggesting it is the scrolling
acceleration that is doing it.

I suggest other people with this problem try the following steps:

1: Right-click on your desktop, and select "Properties" to bring up display settings
2: Select the "Settings" tab
3: Press the "Advanced Properties" button
4: Select the "Performance" tab
5: Drag the slider so basic or no acceleration is selected (first two levels)
6: Press "OK" and "Close" to confirm
7: Agree to restart when asked
8: Try to crash

I have also found that if I get the crashes on startup which follow this bug
being triggered, deleting component.reg fixes it.

Comment 8

Yes, switching video optimizations down to "basic" allows Mozilla to run 
properly. Though this also breaks DirectDraw and Direct3D. Games and Movie-
Players failed to work after the switch. Therefore this is not a viable 
solution to the problem.

To sum up Hardware which seems to be affected by this bug till now:

- Mainboard based on SIS-730S with a built-in SIS-300 graphics chip (me)

- ATI Mach 64 (kirun)

- Thinkpad 380Z having a NeoMagic MagicMedia256AV (NM2200) graphics chip (some 
guy in the mozillazine forum)

This is definitely not a hardware-manufacturer specific problem. I guess the 
problem lies in the code section interfacing with the win32 GDI layer. It uses 
it somehow (probably to gain some speed) which is tolerated by a huge part of 
hardware&devicedrivers out there but causes problems on a small fraction of 
hardware&devicedrivers.

I don't know what fraction of Mozilla is developped in-house but companies tend 
to buy their hardware often from just a very few sources. Therefore it is quite 
possible that most of developers and QA never have this specific problem.

No problems for me: Windows XP build 2002021303
NVIDIA GeForce 2
Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer
Confirming bug per earlier comments, to get it on the radar.

Reporter:  Can you use a Talkback-enabled build and send in a crash report?  
That will help out a lot in triaging this bug appropriately.

I thought this is a dup of a known issue with some cards. Guess there is need
for more testing, maybe a recent optimization on imagelib?

Comment 13

You can't generate a talkback for this bug - it locks up your whole system, not
just mozilla. Talkback doesn't trigger.

Comment 14

17 years ago
As talkback doesn't work for this case I've got another offer: I strongly hope 
that old nightly binaries are archived somewhere (maybe on CD-R). If I can get 
access to win32-binaries of all nightly builds between 0.9.6 and 0.9.7 I'm 
willing to take some time and find out the very first nightly that crashes the 
machine. Then we need to time-travel to that particular day/hour using CVS to 
find the checkin that might have caused the problem.

One strange sidenote through: though my machine appears to completely frozen, it 
remains pingable over the net. This in fact means, that some parts of the OS are 
still running and it could be possible to gather further informations using the 
Compuware Soft-ICE kernel-level-debugger controlled through a terminal hanging 
on a serial port. But as Soft-ICE is REALLY expensive, I'd suggest this only as 
a last resort.

_basic: could you tell us the bug #'s of the similar bug's you're talking about?

Comment 15

This still happens with RC2. I updated my drivers to the latest ones on the ATi
site and the problem remains. It can take a while for the problem to surface.

One thing I have noticed is my 0.9.7 SVG build (2002010204) does not have this
bug on scrolling pages. It does, however, have the bug scrolling some other
things (such as dropdown lists or the list of stored cookies).

Was there some code interacting with acceleration that was introduced in two
parts somehow? Widgets first, pages later? 

I appreciate it's hard for any developers to reproduce this, as they don't have
the right kind of card. If running some specially prepared build (with logs etc)
would help, then I'll do that.

I am experiencing this bug with 1.1 branch build 2002081204, and some other 1.1
builds from about a week before that.  Scrolling on certain pages locks the
machine completely.  Not even ctrl-alt-del restarts the computer; I have to use
the harware reset switch.

The affected system is running Windows 2000 and has an ATI Radeon 7000-based
video card.  The problems began immediately after upgrading the video drivers
from version 5.13.01.6094 to version 5.13.01.6118 from the ATI web site.

The bug is triggered reliably on certain pages, including:
<http://www.linux.org.uk/cgi-bin/portaloo?addall=maths>

I'm willing to run test binaries or other diagnostics to help fix this bug.  In
the near future I will try downgrading the video drivers and/or disabling
acceleration to test the affect.
(Cont'd from comment #17)  The bug no longer occurs after setting the
acceleration to "Basic only" in the Troubleshooting section of the Display settings.

Comment 19

17 years ago
I believe I am experiencing this bug with 1.0, but with other interesting
twists.   I am running Windows 2000 with an ATI Radeon 8500 video card.  When my
system hangs, the mouse cursor freezes, the keyboard becomes totally
unresponsive (no CTRL+ALT+DEL response, and LED lights are frozen), but my
computer continues to move video from my capture card and sound audio.  It
appears that a few web pages trigger the bug quite easily, while others don't
seem to trigger it at all.  The pages that trigger the bug most easily are valid
HTML/XHTML, so I'm not sure what to think there.  I can trigger the bug by
scrolling quickly (and sometimes slowly) with the mouse wheel, but not with the
keyboard arrow keys or page up/down keys.  I can also trigger the bug in Opera,
but not in Internet Explorer.  As suggested by others, I disabled video
acceleration and so far I can not reproduce the bug (in Mozilla...haven't tried
Opera yet).  I upgraded my video card drivers and installed Win2k SP3 several
days ago, and I believe my problems with the bug started about the same time.

Comment 20

From the Gimp Win32 page (http://www.gimp.org/~tml/gimp/win32/)

Many people with ATI Rage Pro cards have complained about display errors. It
seems that this is a known problem with the drivers for these cards, and can be
worked around by setting DEVBMP=0 in the [display] section of the Windows
system.ini file, like this:

[display] 
DEVBMP=0 

This also appears to fix the scroll crash for me.
(cont'd from comment #17) Reverting to the Win2K Radeon driver version
5.13.01.6071 fixed the crash on this machine.  The DEVBMP line mentioned in
comment #20 did not work with this machine.

Comment 22

17 years ago
The bug caused me trouble also.

Steps to reproduce (100% reproduceable in my environment):
1) Have a Windows (Windows 2000 sp3 in my case) machine with an ATI video card 
(mine: Radeon 64 DDR VIVO) having driver 5.13.01.6118.
2) Start Mozilla and go to <http://www.linux.org.uk/cgi-bin/portaloo?
addall=maths>
3) Open new tab (Ctrl-T)
4) Return to the first tab
5) Try to scroll down
6) Machine freezes, only mouse cursor can be moved. NumLock LED frozen. Ctrl-
Alt-Del gets ignored.
7) Mouse cursor also freeze after a while
8) Other application seem to work at background, but screen picture is frozen.

Workaround (worked in my case):
remove the 5.13.01.6118 driver and install 5.13.01.6071

Not very sure what software to blame, but I have filed bug report on 
support.ati.com.

Comment 23

17 years ago
Does anyone seeing this problem not have an ATI card?  There are a couple of
other bugs about crashes with ATI video cards.
In reply to comment #23 (are non-ATI cards affected?):

Yes.  See for example comment #8 and comment #9.  Affect video cards include
SIS, nVidia, NeoMagic.

Comment 25

ATI has released new driver version 5.13.01.6166 (a.k.a. CATALYST 02.3).
In the Release Notes, they explicitly claim that "Hanging issues with Mozilla
browser" are resolved.
I tried this driver with my previous test case and it worked OK.
No more hangs using Mozilla for 3 days.

I've reported this as #158143 previously, but it seems that most of the activity
is at this bug number, so I'll report some new information here.

I have some anecdotal evidence that using the Microsoft truetype core fonts
(Debian's msttcorefonts package) makes the problem much more likely.  I re-enabled
them recently on the AMD Duron mentioned below and the problem began recurring 
much more frequently.

I've seen this on the following machines:

 - Toshiba Satellite S303 (PIII) with NVidia GeForce2Go + Debian woody
 - Generic AMD Duron with NVidia GeForce II MX + Debian woody
 - Generic Celeron with 3dfx Voodoo 3 + Debian woody
 - Generic AMD T-bird with NVidia GeForce II MX + Debian woody

These two URLs provide 100% repeatability of the bug on my machines, which are
available for remote debugging if needed:

http://www.pcchips.com.tw/BIOS.html
http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&u=/nm/20021105/people_nm/people_kidman_dc_1

On all four systems, a strip of the bottom window is duplicated, often trimming
a line of text in half in the process.  I've attached a screenshot of the
result.

Here are stack dumps of two instances of the problem:

I think this is what I'm having on Debian stable (including moz 1.4).
Happens on a variety of websites.

This is confirmed a problem on OS X 10.3.9 also.  Release 1.0.6 is unusable to
me -- I cannot browse more than a few minutes before the entire system hangs due
to this process eating all of the CPU and not returning it!  I have to usually
kill the runaway process.

i would say this was a blocker, even though it compils and runs -- if your
system is going to die by running this...
do you see this problem when running version 3?
