build: FB 20031024 Win2k Since this WE, I noticed that it took longer and longer to get initial HTTP Auth popup when trying to reach sites with HTTP authentication. In 2 days, FB was just unusable (700MB of RAM). I'm using the security manager to protect passwords (HTTP basic auth.). I checked for a possible parsing issue with FB, and one of my files, signons.txt, in my profile is 128MB large. I'll try 20031027 tonight and can possibly send the zipped signons.txt (only 400KB) to a developer (for security reasons). One possible reason I see is bug 222134, which touched wallet.cpp according to: http://bonsai.mozilla.org/cvsquery.cgi? branch=HEAD&file=mozilla/extensions/wallet/src/wallet.cpp&date=month
It's not that, Firebird does not use extensions/wallet at all.
Do you remember anything peculiar that may have happened while using password manager? I'm thinking along the line of a connection problem when telling the password manager to save login information for example.
bug 222134 also touched Satchel. Few actions that happened this WE, one of my passwords changed so I had to save the new one, and also deinstalled Googlebar to then install an earlier version of googlebar (after restarting).
20031007, on Win XP pro My signons.txt was 135MB. Took me a while to find the file and figure out that this was the reason for permanent crashes of firebird on pages with forms. No unusual activity on my side before the problem.
My signons.txt grew up to several hundreds of MBs, each time I tried to store the password of a proxy login. The 'AuthName' of this logon contained a German umlaut which was replaced by various sequences of thousands of characters. At the place of 'ü' you could read for example fÃƒÂƒÃ‚Âƒ...Ã‚ÂƒÃƒÂ‚Ã‚Â‚ÃƒÂƒÃ‚Â‚ÃƒÂ‚Ã‚Â¼. There seems to be a problem while escaping/coding characters in the range 128...255.
minusing request, bryner's gone until Dec 30th, and the fix for this probably isn't trivial
