Description

14 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.8.0.1) Gecko/20060111 Firefox/1.5.0.1
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.8.0.1) Gecko/20060111 Firefox/1.5.0.1

While the browser is still "Waiting for <site>...", the stop-sign button in the top toolbar does not work.  Clicking on it has no result.  However, command-. (command-period) does work, and properly cancels loading of the page.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Browse to a site which is slow to respond to the request
2. Click on the stop-sign button

Actual Results:  
Nothing happens.

Expected Results:  
Page should stop loading; browser should cancel request to contact website.
Reporter, do you still see this problem with the latest Firefox 2? If not, can you please close this bug as WORKSFORME. Thanks!

Yes, I still see it with 2.0.0.4 on Mac.  I've updated the Version accordingly.

The stop-sign click often appears to be queued; it generally takes effect as soon as the status bar changes from "Waiting for ..." to "Transferring...", although I've also occasionally see it respond sooner.  Command-period still responds immediately every time I've tried.

I also see this occasionally.

Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X; en-US; rv:1.8.1.6) Gecko/20070725 Firefox/2.0.0.6.

A browser restart usually solves it. Unfortunately I haven't been able to nail it down to reproducible steps.
This bug was originally reported on Firefox 2.x or older, which is no longer supported and will not be receiving any more updates. I strongly suggest that you update to Firefox 3.6.8 or later, update your plugins (flash, adobe, etc.), and retest in a new profile. If you still see the issue with the updated Firefox, please post here. Otherwise, please close as RESOLVED > WORKSFORME
