lawrence could you give us your OS version # ? Are you behind a firewall/proxy ? if so what kind of proxy ?
I gave it another go this morning, after upgrading to 10.4.5. Although Camino needed a few minutes to "warm up", it then started working much better. The beachball mainly afflicts the GUI itself, above all when building menues for toolbar bookmarks (even if the menu has only 8 items). But also hovering over a hyperlink can cause the beachball, especially when first launched. Surprising on a dual 2.5GHz G5. However, Camino is *very* fast at responding to requests from other apps, like NetNewsWire Lite: the new windows open instantly. Re firewall: yes, the Computer Lab runs a draconian firewall, but I don't think it's to blame.
I have done more tests and the behaviour is pretty consistent. Upon launch, Camino is extremely sluggish for a couple of minutes. The delays get briefer and briefer and eventually disappear.
I notice that upon launch the Console log reports "2006-02-24 11:32:28.984 Camino Using Proxy Auto-Config (PAC) file http://www.cam.ac.uk/proxyconfig.pac" Could this be to blame? It would explain Camino's becoming responsive after a few minutes.
Simon, could a slow or misconfigured proxy server cause this sort of thing?
Yeah, this look like URL loads for favicons getting stuck because the PAC file hasn't loaded yet; they get stuck in DNS. We had a bug similar to this about the first page load not using PAC, but I couldn't find it.
In the past few days the problem has disappeared. That is, Camino launches promptly and is able to respond immediately. I have no idea what may have changed--certainly it's the same version of Camino.
(In reply to comment #7) > We had a bug similar to this about > the first page load not using PAC, but I couldn't find it. Bug 185644 via bug 100022, but there are a couple of supposedly-fixed proxy bugs that have re-appeared recently (bug 324424, bug 327599), so who knows....
Summary: camino hangs on launch → camino hangs on launch (favicons loading before PAC)
Lawrence, has this bug returned, or are you still getting the good results you reported in comment 8? I ran across bug 188006 tonight looking for something else, and it (as well as the apparent sudden disappearance of the problem) made me wonder if perhaps *part* of the problem in this instance was with the Cambridge proxy server/PAC script. I did some logging in association with another bug, and it seems like we do start trying to issue network requests for many favicons very early; I'm not behind a proxy so I couldn't tell where it might fall (and, well, Necko logs are somewhat Greek to me)....
QA Contact: general
I'm happy to say that the hanging bug seems to be gone. Just as well, because I've been having problems with Safari.
Closing WFM since this doesn't seem to be occuring for the reporter any more.
