Statusbar does not update correctly with tabs and links
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0 using: Windows NT v5.0(2000) SP4 + Firefox v1.0 b20041107 (The Official) checked: 'clean' installs of Firefox v1.0 PR + Firefox v1.0 Official no preference changes, no extensions. Firefox statusbar text doesn't update correctly & properly as expected in actions with tabs & links. There're two issues I figured out. First(numbered) one is reproducible 'everytime'. Second(alphabet) one is reproducible somewhat chance and I can't find the everytime steps for it. Below images are self-explanatory & to be used with 'actual results' http://www.geocities.com/t1470258/screenshot001.png http://www.geocities.com/t1470258/screenshot002.png http://www.geocities.com/t1470258/screenshot003.png * All images are screenshots taken consecutively Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Open few sites with links 2.In a page, while over a link, right-click the link 3.While right-click menu shown, click another tab a.Open few sites b.Open a site with long loading time c.While site is loading switch tabs d.Repeat b & c until you get a bug Actual Results: With numbered steps: If you switch back to the page you right-clicked the link, you will see that tab's statusbar text still shows the URL of the right-clicked link until you hover a link or perform action. Check above 2nd image for a result. With alphabet steps (with some uncertainity): Long loading time site's statusbar action text sticks with the last tab selected until you hover a link or perform action. This semi-fixation affects just those tabs while others remain unaffected. Check above 1st & 3rd images for results. Expected Results: With numbered: Statusbar text should be 'Done' as it's done after you hover a link & move cursor away. With alphabet: Every tab should have its own statusbar text displayed in the statusbar after the tabs are loaded. While some tabs are loading, the statusbar text should be updated to show actions for those tabs only.
Added also attachments of the same images I linked from another site. Use with the 'Actual Results' section.
Sounds like a duplicate of Bug 104532.
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8b2) Gecko/20050430 Firefox/1.0+ I can confirm this bug and can still reproduce it.
CONFIRMED! Able to reproduce this in the latest trunk nightlies using the following steps: 1) Launch Deer Park (Latest build) 2) Navigate to http://forums.mozillazine.org/ (Let page load complete) 3) Open a new tab 4) Navigate to http://www.cnn.com/ 5) QUICKLY switch to the first tab!!! 6) Observe either "transferring data from www.cnn.com..." or "waiting for i.a.cnn.net..." or something very similar in the status bar! I spoke to Neil on IRC (#Developers) and he stated: "just find a firefox version of the bug, pointing out that it's not a duplicate because it works in the suite". The "duplicate" he refers to is bug: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=104532. Apparently the Suite doesn't experience this issue. Is it possible to port the patches from bug https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=104532 ? Requesting blocking1.8b3 and blocking-aviary1.1!
