User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040531 Firefox/0.8.0+ Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040531 Firefox/0.8.0+ When I am waiting for a page to be displayed, I often feel the need to read the currently displayed page for longer and so I press the 'stop' button. I often find that, when I press the stop button, the window's content is changed - sometimes to a blank page, other times to a partially rendered page. Please consider changing the action of the 'stop' button to cause the currently displayed content to be retained, and the results of the partial page rendering to be discarded. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1. Visit a 'slow' web site. 2. Press the 'stop' button before the page has been changed 3. Actual Results: Depending on the progress of the rendering (which depends on many factors; bandwidth, web page design, etc), pressing 'stop' will change the displayed page. Expected Results: I expect 'stop' to keep whatever it is I am currently looking at.
Affects all platforms, and is not Firefox specific.
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Component: General → Browser-General
Ever confirmed: true
OS: MacOS X → All
Product: Firefox → Browser
Version: unspecified → Trunk
Hardware -> All Component -> XP Apps:GUI Features (I think...) Also, sometimes the browser will just go ahead and completely render the new page anyway. I set the bug alias to 'stopmeansstop'.
Component: General → XP Apps: GUI Features
Hardware: Macintosh → All
I suspect that this is the wrong product/component, but I'm absolutely certain the unchanged assignee/qa is wrong, so -> defaults.
