User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i586; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20021130 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i586; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20021130 "save image" is very slow - I just timed an attempt to save a small image (slashdot topic gif) at over 4 minutes. During most of this time, the frame (but not the content) of the save image file select window stays on the screen, although the window has been removed from the tasklist applet. Also during most of this time the "saving image" window has NOT YET appeared on screen. Typically (but a little subjectively) the time is even worse the FIRST time I try to save image during a single session, later saves seem to run a little faster (but not much). This problem has been around since Mozilla 1.0. Note that in the majority of cases the image exists in Cache, and I can find it with a graphics-browser and "save" it (drag to a directory) in a matter of seconds. In preferences -> cache, I have "compare" set to "once per session", and I also note that the "save" time is often far greater than the amount of time that was needed to download the image in the first place. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Locate desired image on screen 2.Right click, select "save image as" 3.Select desired file name and click "save", then WAIT Actual Results: Frame of "save image" window remained on screen, but window contents was blank, and window was no longer in tasklist. After several minutes, "Saving" window appeared. Until save was complete, apparently no window updates were done. Clicking on a different Mozilla window (for example, mail client) in the tasklist would cause the window FRAME to change to that new window, but window content was not updated. Also if I went to a different screen workspace (using Gnome and Sawfish and 4 workspaces) and returned to workspace with Mozilla, the frame of the Mozilla window reappeared but window contents was still whatever was shown in the other workspace. Expected Results: I expected everything to happen MUCH MUCH faster, as noted above to simply copy a file from Cache to another directory takes only seconds. This is a fairly slow computer (180mHz, 128M memory, running Red Hat 7.0), but saving the file shouldn't take far longer than downloading it over a 33.6 dial-up. I also note that once the image is fully downloaded and displayed, the "save" time seems to be relatively constant, regardless of the size of the image.
At best this is a duplicate of bug 195990, at worst it's INVALID due to the age of the build you're reporting against. Please install a recent build and see if you still get the same behaviour. (If so, reopen bug 195990.) *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 195990 ***

Ah - just saw the Mozilla version (1.2.1) so the build date on that branch may be appropriate (?). If so, I apologize for the "old build" comment. But this still looks like a dupe...
