From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:0.9.8+) Gecko/20020208 BuildID: 2002020803 Twice now while composing a reply to an e-mail, Mozilla hung with a 100% cpu usage. Both times, it occurred after I had pressed Enter to end a paragraph, and just as I typed the first character of the new paragraph. This does not happen for every paragraph and so far, I have not been able to reproduce it reliabilly. I'm not sure whether it's only a reply (I have the preference set to quote the e-mail I'm replying to), or for all e-mail compositions. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1.Type some paragraphs in a reply. 2.Hope the start of a new paragraph will cause the hang with 100% cpu. Actual Results: Mozilla hangs with 100% cpu usage. Expected Results: Continue to compose e-mail.
Still no consistant way to reproduce this, but I've found it doesn't matter whether it's a reply or new note. I've gotten it to happen several times since my first report. Sometimes it takes a considerable amount of typing, and other times, it happens very soon. It does happen enough that with some patience, it should occur within a reasonable time.
same here. i'm also running XP
shouldn't the component of this bug be 'editor-composer'?
I'm not sure this is a dup of 124209, since I've seen the hang on a fresh compose (not a reply) which for me is plain text. When 124209 is in a nightly, and I don't see my hangs, I'll agree it was a dup.
i'm getting it on today's build (20020220xx) on linux. sorry i don't know the xx; i've reverted to 2002021821 and the problem seems to go away.. seems to have nothing to do with bug 124209, as i'm not selecting anything, deleting anything, and i'm not using plain-text reply mode.
I'm getting this too on a build from yesterday (linux), each time I try to paste a line starting with a <tab>...
dup of bug 126558?
I don't think this is a dup of bug 126558. With the hang I see no tab was entered, and I did not get high cpu usage. In fact I am able to close the composer window, and start a new one and continue working. However, in the composer window in which the hang occurred, I can do nothing. It's especially bad because I can't do a copy of the text to preserve what I've already typed. I have to re-enter it all. It's possible that what Dennis Haney is seeing is a dup of bug 126558 since it involves use of the tab character.
