User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; ca-AD; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041108 Firefox/1.0 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; ca-AD; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041108 Firefox/1.0 In the most cases, when you open a new link in a new tab so you can continue reading the current tab, is very usefull. But when the network is satured or when the network performance goes down, every new web page that is requested becomes a time out, so Firefox opens a new dialog (interrupting the user's navigation). This happens in any platform I've tried windows xp, windows 2000 and ubuntu linux. My current Firefox version is: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; ca-AD; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041108 Firefox/1.0 My opinion is: when a time out is produced, change the tab color, or font color or maybe the tab's icon; so the user can continue reading the current web but can see that the web that was launched in another tab has not loaded succesfully. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. I'am view a web page 2. Control+click over a link, so it opens in background in other tab 3. If it produces a timeout, a new dialog opens. Actual Results: The user MUST stop reading the web and click ok in the new dialog Expected Results: Just tell the user that there was a time out in another way (changing tab color...) so the user can continue reading the old web.
