This happens every time for any file for any web site. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1) Go to any web site. 2) Select any file or downloadable image. 3) Select "Save As" or "Save Link Target As". 4) Click the "Save" button in the file dialog. 5) Mozilla hangs with a ranbow cursor for 10 to 30 seconds. Actual Results: Mozilla hangs with a ranbow cursor for 10 to 30 seconds. The hang is in 2 parts, 5-10 seconds during which the save progress dialog is a blank dialog with nothing filled in followed by another 5-20 seconds after the save is complete before Mozilla responds to any input. During the hang Mozilla uses less than 1% CPU. Clicking on any other Mozilla window is ignored until the Save progress bar is no longer blank. Expected Results: Mozilla shuld remain responsive while the save takes place in the background.
Hi I have the same Problem with Linux Mozilla 1.2.1. as far as i can remember the older version did not have such a delay while saving files. Looks like a general Problem with 1.2.1.
Hi Douglas, i could reduce waiting time by removing the old rubish from the Download Manager. Crtl A and then Remove from List. I had thousend of old downloads in this List. I hope this helps. Bender
Douglas, if comment #2 resolves your problem, this is a duplicate of bug 145851. Please resolve it. Thanks.
When I open the Download Manager in Mozilla, I get an empty window. I have the Navigator:Downloads preference set to "Open a progress Dialog" instead of "Open the Download Manager". There are NO files listed in the Download Manager so having too many cannot be the cause of this problem.
Well, there is also a bug about not wrongly displaying the downloads in the dl manager. Currently it is supposed to display ALL downloads you ever did (no matter which kind of progress window is displayed) and I don't think there were none since end of November. Please locate the file "downloads.rdf" in your profile folder (the one you really use, best make a file search for that name) and check its size. If it is larger than about 200-300 kB it probably does slow things down.
The "downloads.rdf" file was 1.6 megabytes. After deleting the "downloads.rdf" file and restarting Mozilla the slowdown is gone.
Ok, then this is bug 145851. I'm going to do some testing now and then confirm that other bug. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 145851 ***
