(my firefox has plugins for java, pdf, flash, multimedia(mplayer)). Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.start azureus 2.start firefox and open 10+ tabs with web pages containing multimedia 3.in about 10 minutes, laptop becomes not-responding, 3-5 minutes later azureus and firefox exit
Can you try the standard diagnostic? (http://kb.mozillazine.org/Standard_diagnostic_(Firefox))
(In reply to comment #1) > Can you try the standard diagnostic? > (http://kb.mozillazine.org/Standard_diagnostic_(Firefox)) > the bug (firefox causing the laptop to not respond, causing heavy hard disk activity and exit) is observed without azureus. it has a problem with xhtml pages i think. to reproduce: 1- get the openoffice.org sdk from http://download.openoffice.org/680/sdk.html 2- in the extracted directory open index.html with firefox 3- click on the "developer's guide" link 4- click on the "spreadsheet documents" link the bug may appear now, if not 5- open the "writing uno components" link in a NEW tab (you may need to search the current page for that link) the bug must appear now
I think this is a Java problem: I have just about exactly the same setup, except I'm using Java Blackdown-1.4.2-02, and I've never come across these symptoms. When this happens, can you look in the System Monitor and see if anything's using inordinately high amounts of CPU time?

i have 512 ram, and 250mb of it is free according to "top". when i open spreadsheet.xhtml from OOo sdk with firefox, free memory drops down to 5mb, and then firefox does "the bug", and exit.

I think this is a system hardware thing. Your specs aren't particularly high, and you're loading several huge pages at the same time there. Can you reproduce this with smaller pages?

Can you reproduce > this with smaller pages? > ok. i have 512 mb ram, and no swap. look: 1- when i turn on my laptop and login i have 184 mb free memory, there is no program like chat etc. running (max mem usage: xorg:%4) 2- then i run firefox, free mem drops to 148 mb (mem usage: xorg:%4.2 firefox:%5.4) 3- then from File -> Open File menu of firefox, i open OpenOffice2_SDK_directory/index.html. free mem drops to 144mb (mem usage: xorg:%4.3 firefox:%6.1) 4- then i click on the "developer's guide" link (to html file). free mem and mem usage same 5- then i click on the "Spreadsheet Documents" link (to XHTML file). NOW free mem drops to 14 mb (mem usage: xorg:%65.4 firefox:%5.9) then if i try to open the link "writing uno components" in a new tab, firefox (& my laptop) becomes not-responding, and firefox exit in about 3-4 minutes and i have 354 mb free mem (xorg:%3) now. if i do the above steps starting from 2 i have: 2- 313 mb free mem 3- 307 mb free mem 4- same (everything is reasonable up to here) 5- 10 mb free mem (xorg:%65.5 again) then if i try to open the link "writing uno components" in a new tab, firefox (& my laptop) becomes not-responding,but this time it takes very long for firefox to exit and i have to turn off and on my laptop. so clearly XHTML PAGES MAKE FIREFOX CAUSE XORG TO USE HUGE AMOUNTS OF MEMORY. and i play games like NeverWinter Nights 1.66, Wolfenstein ET without any problem, so i doubt it is my hardware that is not sufficient.
and spreadsheet.xhtml and all the files (pictures) in that directory (Spreadsheet) is totally 3.5 mb.
