User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X; en) AppleWebKit/125.2 (KHTML, like Gecko) Safari/125.8 Build Identifier: Whenver I click on a link and change my mind, press ESC key, Firefox seems to be in non-interruptable mode until it completed downloading the page. My impression is that the browser's responsiveness should be improved, read: Firefox has to stop wasting my time--which is particularly true with slow connections. To make things worse, after downloading the page, Firefox recognizes me having pressed ESC, cleans the display, and remains in waiting mode. Wouldn't it be much better to keep the old page displayed? I do think so. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Click link 2. press ESC while browser loads page 3. Actual Results: blank page Expected Results: display old page
Reporter: Are you talking about Firefox 0.8 or 0.9.x? If 0.8, can you please try with Firefox 0.9.2 again?
I'm using 0.8. 2 days left till 0.9.1-5 hits Debian sid. I'll check it. Has anybody else a chance to test this with 0.9.2?
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040926 Firefox/0.10 Pressing escape when a page is loading instantly stops said page load. Reporter, note that Firefox 1.0PR (a.k.a. 0.10) is now out, so you should verify that the problem still exists in that, not 0.9.2.
$ dpkg -l mozilla-firefox ii mozilla-firefo 1.0-2 lightweight web browser based on Mozilla I'm still seeing the same behavior. If you wait till the browser is about to switch pages, then press ESC, you'll end up with a blank page.
