From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0rc3) Gecko/20020523 BuildID: 2002052316 While loading any page I've tried so far, mozilla will freeze for various periods of time--the nytimes site in the url seems to be the worst I've found (can be several seconds or longer) but it seems to happen on every page I've looked at (mostly including the mozilla.org pages relating to reporting bugs :-). If this did happen under 0.9.9 (the version I used just prior to my installing 1.0rc3) then it must have been for a much much briefer period of time, especially compared to what happens with www.nytimes.com and all the news articles I looked at on that side. This freeze causes everything in the program to stop--keyboard and mouse responses as well as window repainting, for all windows up on the screen--and occurs while the upper right icon activity indicator is still in its cycling state, though it's not actually cycling while it's frozen, of course. Now I'm testing it again, the length of the pause seems much much less now than it had been. This seems to be true even if I start using the network more like I had been. So, I picked a compromise for the "reproducibility" field for this bug: the real answer is that the pause is reproducable every time, but the length of the pause is not reproducible. The severity I picked is because multithreading is a major feature, even though the bug seems to have calmed down a lot for me. For what it's worth, I'm on a cable modem which claims to have 3,000,000 bps downstream and 300,000 bps upstream bandwidth. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1.Load http://www.nytimes.com (or any other page) Actual Results: All of mozilla froze during the load, for from a brief to moderate period of time. Expected Results: Mozilla should not have frozen, especially other windows.

Starting from trunk 2002061808 Mozilla freeze on loading any page. During ANY loading, Mozilla dont allow to change tab or maximize any other Moz window. It's very annoying. Before this i used trunk from 10th of July and it worked OK. Platform - Windows 2000 Reproducive - Always
yes i can reproduce this on win98 with mozilla 1.0 final too. I've asked in the #mozilla irc room about this previously and been informed that this is a very hard bug to fix and will probably never get fixed. Most reviews of mozilla also mention this bug ... its very common and easily noticeable. it may be a problem with the rendering or layout code. it also leads to mozilla feeling "sluggish" to the user and its probably more cosmetic than anything.
Humm, strange. I didn't had this problem with any older trunk/ver of Mozilla since 2002061808. I closed all application, and reopened it once more - at now i cannot reproduce it. It works OK. Strange. For shure Mozilla has problem with creating new tab (ctrl+n) when focus is on tab which loades. But when i swich tab for something opened i can ctrl+n/ctrl+t . But this problem with doing anything with Mozilla when anywhere anypage is loading is very,very annoying. I hope that we can find when it's occure. As i said, after full restart of Mozilla, it's ok.
WFM with trunk 2002073022, linux. reporter (Timothy Miller): can you reproduce this bug with a recent build of mozilla (for example, 1.1beta)? if so, please comment again with details. if not, please resolve this bug as WORKSFORME. thanks.
