I finally tracked down the problem: the "Image Manager" lists thousands of sites as "cannot load images" -- yet I never specified this to be so! I do not use "image manager" to block images from sites: I have "accept all images" checked. Yes, I can just remove the sites, but it takes several seconds to remove each one (dunno why, it's just slow). Clicking on "Remove all sites" hung Mozilla for over 45 minutes. So long that I killed it. Perhaps that is a seperate problem. Nevertheless, something seriously odd is going on. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: Actual Results:
Changing to correct component.
Do you use the cookie manager to block cookies? Did you use 1.4 after you used 1.5b, and then back to 1.5b again? Can you post the cookperm.txt file from your profile (see the release notes for the location) This could be bug 215461
Yes, I do block lots of cookies, but not images. I may have used 1.4 once or twice after switching to 1.5b -- don't remember. I have been needing to re-block some cookies lately. On a related matter: Starting from a fresh ./.mozilla directory would probably be a good idea: I'm running on the same one since Mozilla 0.92 or so, but really do not want to loose some of my data. Is there an easy way to export and then re-import my password file (like one's bookmarks)?
>Is there an easy way to export and then re-import my password file (like one's bookmarks)? I've used the instructions here successfully in the past: http://burntelectrons.com/moz/moz-passwords.html
Wow, just in time too -- somehow Mozilla created a new *.s file and "lost" all of my saved passwords! Probably when I tried a nightly build too check on this bug... Thanks for the tip. Perhaps this should be in the Moz docs somewhere?
You can fix the cookperm.txt by removing the lines that start with % I imported your cookperm.txt without that lines fine in a recent nightly.
Thanks. I ended up just blowing cookperm.txt away and allowing Moz to re-build it.
anyway, buzilla isn't a helpdesk. duping to bug 215461 which made loading cookperm.txt more robust. It is also fixed on the 1.5 branch *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 215461 ***
