(The following is based on the bug-helper form that doesn't work for me for some reason. Also, my user-agent string is mis-reported as "Mozilla/3.01Gold (Macintosh; I; 68K)", probably because I'm using Junkbuster. My build ID is 2001112114.) PRODUCT Browser and Composer COMPONENT Event handling PLATFORM Sun OPERATING SYSTEM Solaris BUILD ID 2001112114 URL n/a SUMMARY Mozilla holds focus for extended periods of time DESCRIPTION When I start a page loading (say, by clicking on a link), Mozilla "locks" my desktop by not releasing the focus until the remote host is contacted and the page starts downloading. For instance, if I right-click and "Open [page] in New Tab", and then try to change virtual desktops with [Alt]-[FunctionKey] (I use olvwm), I am unable to do so until the remote server has been contacted. This can take up to 30 seconds sometimes, and that's very annoying. There are other bits of flakiness with the focus as well which I haven't been able to isolate beyond being caused by Mozilla. Some details of my configuration: OS (uname -a): SunOS caffeine 5.8 Generic_108528-06 sun4u sparc Window manager: OLVWM (OpenLook Virtual Window Manager), patched to support True-Color visuals, and redraw during resize (custom hack) REPRODUCIBILITY Every time. STEPS TO REPRODUCE 1. Start a page loading 2. Try to shift focus to another window or change virtual desktops. ACTUAL RESULTS Mozilla very slow to release focus, and in fact seems to wait until the remote host is contacted. Indeed, I can sometimes manage to switch virtual desktops during a gap between network connections, but then I'm left with a desktop sans window borders for another 30 seconds as Moz seems to re-grab focus (or *something* -- not sure -- I'm no X guru, not even close). EXPECTED RESULTS I can switch between windows or virt desktops with little or no headaches. Moz should gracefully release focus whenever such release is requested. SEVERITY Normal
probably dup of Bug 114283. Try newer mozilla.
