When you got the Auto-Complete feature enabled and you type a lot (I mean a LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOT) of characters in a textfield, the next time the browser try to recover that word it will crash. And you can't disable the auto-complete feature because it crashes if you do so. The only way to fix the problem is browsing (not with mozilla =P) to the folder where the auto-complete words are stored (I forgot the path to it) and delete THE file. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Enable the Auto-Complete feature. 2.Type a lot, I mean a lot, more than k k k k characters in a textfield 3.Click on the submit button (so the browser will save the word you typed to recover it when you visit the website next time 4.Get back to the same website and let the browser show the list of auto-complete words and see it crashing... Actual Results: The browser crashed, and the PC has become 100% used by the Mozilla Software Expected Results: Have a limit of N characters to "remember" on auto-complete fields, like this... * if the guy types 150 chars the browser saves only 30 (the dev. will have to test the limit of the PC/software and set that number) Windows XP SP 2 English Version AMD Athlon XP 2600+ 512 MB DDRAM 120GB Samsung HD
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8b2) Gecko/20050705 Firefox/1.0+ ID:2005070515 Entered a string of 257 letters into Google's search field. Searched it, went back. Started typing that string, selected that autocomplete entry with no problem. WFM.
well... as I said, a LOT of characters, and 257 letters isn't a LOT of chars.... 257 letters is just a small text, next time test it with at least 10x the amount you typed.
Related to bug 228475?
I don't think so. This bug is related to AutoComplete unlike bug 228475.
On my wife's Mac OS X (10.2) box, I see behavior similar to this, except that even just a few characters causes the crash. Often, when I type something into the Google search box, if what I type matches something in the search history, after about four characters, my cursor becomes a fancy colored wheel that spins forever and firefox stops resonding.
Robert, could you either install with talkback or post the crash report that Mac gives you here? http://kb.mozillazine.org/Talkback
