Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. use the browser for 20 minutes or so 2. 3. Actual Results: Firebird suddenly stops responding to new URL requests Expected Results: when i click on a bookmark or enter a URL into the address bar, Firebird is supposed to go to that URL. instead, nothing happens. using default theme, with StumbleUpon and Web Developer extensions enabled.
Brian, did you already tried by creating a new, vanilla profile without installing any extensions at all?
I encounter this bug on a daily basis as well. Although, I think I've pinned it down to a more specific series of events: it always happens, without fail, only after all active Firebird windows are closed (Firebird app itself remains open); The moment a new window is then opened, the bug occurs. The bug remains on all new windows and tabs until I quit out of Firebird and open it up again. So, I've just been making a point to make sure that I always keep at least one Firebird window open (even if it's simply a blank page.) I'm running the latest nightly of Firebird 0.7 release candidate on OS X 10.2.6. Hope this helps! Keep up the awesome work on the project. Firebird is still the best browser for OS X. I've been running it daily since Phoenix 0.5, and I look forward to continue testing nightly builds. Best regards, Glenn Watts

works for me, although i do see the other problems with the first window after all closed. i'm not sure why this happens for some and not others. by the way, the bookmarks not working problem is being tracked in bug 206752.
i have a suspicion this is fixed in 0.7.1. let me know, as i never saw this problem to start with :)
It looks like the original reporter hasn't responded since September. Nobody else has been able to reproduce this bug, and I suspect it was a result of occasionally closing all windows and opening a new one, which was fixed in bug 223331. Comment 2 definitely was that bug.
Yes, 0.7.1 for OS X seems to have fixed this bug. I'm running 0.7.1 and I no longer have this issue. I used to experience it every day with 0.7 and earlier, and now I do not experience it at all. 0.7.1 is FANTASTIC!!! Keep up the great work. This browser is incredible. Best Regards, Glenn
My apologies. Just saw the cross-reference against Bug 223331. I guess I posted my original comment (#2) prior to that bug being tracked? Anyhoo, I agree with you Wayne, I think original poster was experiencing Bug 223331 but just didn't realize how to pinpoint it more accurately. Glenn
I agree with Glen, duping it against Bug 223331 *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 223331 ***
