This has been around a while. 2002030316. I'm on POTS, and rarely get a connection good for more than 26K. If I am downloading a binary(s) with another app and try to load a new or reload a page in Mozilla, Mozilla will display a resolving host or other message on status bar, but will fail to actually load anything before stopping and displaying the "done" message on the status bar.
Confirming. I can only connect at 14.4K, and I've been seeing this for a while on Windows 98. Particularly noticed this on www.google.com, www.imdb.com, and even saw it on jabber.com. These pages would load partially, then abort midstream. I've also had problems with downloading nightlies on occasion, too.

2002031716 OS/2 Under same conditions, a popup now occurs instead of nothing at all: "an unknown error occurred while attempting to load the requested page". Result remains the same - no page loaded.
mrmazda, Perhaps bug 131399 is masking this for now?
Bug 131399? I don't see the relationship? This bug is still a problem in 2002040908 for OS/2.
> Bug 131399? I don't see the relationship? I believe that bug was causing the change of behavior you described in comment #2. It applied to the build you reported using and was a recent issue. As it is now fixed, it isn't really a problem.
mrmazda: any update from a Mozilla 1.1-ish build?

I moved to broadband last month.
how do you feel about resolving this as invalid, since we can't test anymore?
Pretty dumb, since comment #1 indicates the problem was not unique to me. I probably can test this anyway, but not likely today. Others maybe can too. Try downloading three or more ISO's at once with WGET, then using Mozilla
Still broken as of 2002080908 (didn't use newer build due to bug 162985). I set ppp connection to supercede broadband; Loaded a bunch of pages in tabs; set three theads each downloading a different Mozilla binary; then hit the reload button on Slashdot, Wired, and The Register tabs. When the throbber stopped, the Wired tab was a mostly blank page with some discernable bottom frame content and no scrollbars.
I can reproduce this with recent trunk builds (pre-1.1). This is a really bad problem. To reproduce, download a big file on a dialup connection (I got all the way up to 48000 bps using my Lucent Winmodem) then try to load or reload some Google pages, including Google groups pages, with Mozilla. The big download usually continues but the Google transfer dies and the page does not load. My guess is that maybe we lack only a further tweak of HTTP timeout settings. Hopefully this is right: setting component to Networking: HTTP and reassigning. P.S. After a month's absence, I'm back on DSL now. (Boy, you gotta get broadband.) P.P.S. This is not a perf issue. The problem is not slowness but the inability to transfer a file under the described circumstances.
