User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20031007 Firebird/0.7 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20031007 Firebird/0.7 Firebird works very slow until I initiate Java Plug-In for Internet Explorer loading by loading some page with java applet at it. To be short. I load Firebird – it works very slowly (even mouse cursor hangs for half of a second). If I first load IE and then open some page with Java Applet (Java Plug-In loading) and then open Firebird then it works Ok. That's it. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3.
Also Firebird starts to be slow after I lock my workstation and then unlock it. I know that is very strange :) but it is so!
And when I redo the steps (close all, initiate Java Plug-In loading in IE and then open Firebird) it starts to work Ok again.
Very strange indeed! Obviously most people are not seeing this problem. Have you tried downloading a new copy of Firebird? Maybe a bad plug-in ended up in your copy by accident. Also, you could try running Firebird with a fresh profile: either trash your old profile (temporarily at least), or start the profile manager (see: http://texturizer.net/firebird/faq.html#profilemanager).
I have removed my profile and have used 0.7 MozillaFirebird. No extensions and plugins used. Just raw setup. Even if Firebird works Ok the pair of actions: Lock/Unlock Workstation make Firebird to work slowly. The same situation is for Mozilla 1.x... So I think that this problem have been inherited from Mozilla engine... And now I made some more strange experiment :) 1. IE started using a page with java applet embedded (Java Plug-In have stated). 2. Mozilla and Firebird launched (work Ok). 3. IE closed. 4. Lock/Unlock - Mozilla or Firebird work slowly. 4. Open a page with applet in IE 5. Mozilla and Firebird work Ok! and the most strange thing: If IE window with applet is not closed then lock/unlock doesn't influence the Mozilla and Firebird (they are working good even after lock/unlock).
What version of Java do you have on your computer? Have you tried removing it, and installing a new version (www.java.com)?
I have 1.4.2 JRE installed (from sun.com)
Do you have a Java applet present on your home page when you first load Firebird, maybe? I only ask because there are issues with Microsoft's corruption of Java being interpreted very slowly by Firebird, see: bug 218319. If it's not that, then I'm afraid I'm running out of ideas, sorry. :( I'm not a software programmer or anything, so my advice is pretty limited ;) Hopefully someone else can step in with some ideas.
I have determined not only MozillaFirebird behaves such (slow work until a java applet is launched) but also Windows XP task manger :) so I think that is not a bug of MozillaFirebird browser but the bug of Microsoft or my hardware-software mix... Sorry for bothering you...
No bother. :) I hope you can work it out. If it does turn out to be somehow related to Firebird, please let us know. Good luck!
Per last few comments, marking INVALID. By the way, I'm not quite sure Mozilla Firebird supports the MS Java VM, so I'm surprised it worked. The Sun plugin is the only I know that works.
