User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050716 Firefox/1.0.6 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050716 Firefox/1.0.6 Firefox.exe hangs and CPU usage rises to 99% if any attempt is made to clear any one or all Download Manager items. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: Problem occurred if any of the following was done: 1. "Clear" button was clicked in Tools/Options/Privacy/Download Manager History 2. "Clear" button was clicked in Download Manager window 3. Any single item was selected to clear from Download Manager window 4. "When Firefox exits" was selected to Remove files from the Download Manager in Tools/Options/Privacy/Download Manager History. (This caused Firefox to hang on exit) Actual Results: Firefox.exe would hang, with 99% CPU usage shown in Windows Task Manager, and no error message. If clearing Download Manager was attempted by clicking on a Clear button, all Firefox windows would hang open. If Firefox tried to automatically clear when exiting, all Firefox windows would close, but firefox.exe would still be running with 99% CPU usage in Task Manager. Expected Results: Firefox should have cleared the Download Manager history and resumed normal operation. 1. Problem occurs in both normal and safe modes. 2. downloads.rdf file in user profile was 2.18MB when problem was first noticed (problem could have existed earlier, but can't verify) 3. Renaming/removing downloads.rdf and restarting Firefox fixed the problem. 4. Copying original downloads.rdf back to original location made problem re-appear. 5. Examination of downloads.rdf doesn't reveal any obvious corruption.
Do you see this in safe mode? http://kb.mozillazine.org/Safe_mode

Related to Suite bug 161783?
Same here... When I tried to clear download history from Download Manager window or via Options, computer hangs with 100% cpu usage. Size of file downloads.rdf was 1.14MB, I had to delete it manually...
Addional remark: This is probably related. Before clearing by deleting downloads.rdf, Firefox would also respond very slowly when downloading images with right click/Save Image As... Sometimes 10 seconds or more would elapse before Firefox would respond and notify that even a small download (<10kb, on 4Mb/s connection) had completed. Since reporting the bug, I've set Options to "Clear after successful download". Response when downloading images is immediate, and Firefox hasn't hung since.
Could you guys download the new Firefox 1.5 Beta 1 and tell me if you're still seeing this? http://www.mozilla.org/projects/firefox/
