Trunk build 2002-02-07: WinMe, Win98 Overview: Today's builds install without a problem but after using the Browser for a little while or retrieving Mail then it hangs. WinMe & Win98 only problem since WinXP is ok. Steps to reproduce: 1. Open browser and click through some links, move scrollbar up and down Actual Results: Hang Another set of steps that makes this surface more predictabley: 1. Open Mail 2. Configure for a mail account 3. Retrieve messages and wait or retrieve message and create a new message Actual results: Hang. I tried deleting the XUL.mfl file and I was able to use the profile again but it quickly reverted and displayed the same problem. Expected results: No Hang Marking a blocker since it's impossible to use the app on WinMe or Win98.
can you send the corrupted XUL.mfl to email@example.com since it was supposed to be fixed with bug 188744 ?
> Steps to reproduce: > 1. Open browser and click through some links, move scrollbar up and down That would not involve fastload (i.e., if the hang can happen while just interacting with the UI and not bringing up any other dialogs, then the fastload code will not have ever been called). The other description about mail/news and creating a new message is consistent with how you _might_ hit this fastload hang, but it's kind of contradicted by the first example. The fastload hang is also not a platform dependent bug. So, I'm a bit skeptical that this is the fastload hang you are seeing. But I would like to see the XUL.mfl file just to be more certain. Note: there was another bug reported today that implicated the history.dat file and having a hang on windows while just opening and closing tabs in tabbrowser (bug 192294).
I'm seeing this very often with 2003020908. I don't use mail but I belive that this bug occurs after the browser has been left idle for a few moments. Will a clean profile (and xul.mfl) help me?
Deleting XUL.mfl did _not_ help in my case (WinME & Mozilla build 20030208). What helped in my case is the combination of uninstallling Mozilla and GRE (with the uninstall programs) plus deleting the history (there is a separate bug about hangs with a large history file). I'm unable to say which one saved the day. I've re-installed Mozilla, of course ;-)
This is apparently a duplicate of bug 192294.
After more testing I see that uninstall and history delete did not solve the problem. However to hit the problem I have to hit some specific webpages. Having www.bluesnews.com in one of several open tabs means a sure doom for 20030209.
If it happened between 2003020608 and 2003020708, that means it's one of the following: bug 191927, bug 191548, bug 191739, bug 190490, bug 181644, bug 190529, bug 192009, bug 191021, bug 192049, bug 185698, bug 107002, bug 191675 or the very secret bug 191817.
bug 192294 gives a lot of URLs producing a hanging browser on Win98 and Win98SE, in a new, unused programm directory, with a new, unused profile. I even got a hang when I opened links in the background, while I was reading an article. One of the links led to www.cnn.com, which produced a hang after a while. It must be a regression, as told in comment #5 Build ID: 2003020608 is my last working browser, from 20030207 on mozilla and phoenix are producing hangs, some time after loading sites like www.microsoft.com, www.netscape.com, www.cnn.com. Links in bug 192294.
Build 2003020704 also hangs, which narrows things down a tiny bit.
Warner, what OS are you using, 98, 98SE, ME or something different?
Hermann, I'm using Win98 SE. I did a quick test on XP, and it didn't hang, so that seems in keeping with the theory that this is Win9x only.
If 2003020704 was OK, then the reason for this regression is either bug 192272 or bug 192196. These were the only bugs fixed between February 7th morning and 9th noon Pacific Time (both fixes checked in actually on 7th afternoon). Both were checked in by firstname.lastname@example.org. He is already on the CC: list. BTW, this is definitely a show stopper.
> If 2003020704 was OK... Uh, comment 10 said that 2003020704 "also hangs".
comment #13 is wrong. this would have been caused by checkins occuring on the 6th not the 7th. i've been able to repro the hang. marking as duplicate. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 192294 ***

clearing 1.3b? flag, as this was marked duplicate
My comment #13 logic was OK but I garbled the message (it should have read "if 2003020704 is bad..."). Sorry for the confusion. Verifying Duplicate
Now really verifying :-(
