On my system (Athlon XP 2Gz) it requires about 0.5 seconds per entry, maybe growing on larger numbers. But: deleting the whole host folder is fast. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. open history viewer 2. choose some host folder with lots of entries 3. select many entries 4. hit DEL Actual Results: Mozilla is completely locked up for a long time (several minutes)
> 2. choose some host folder with lots of entries How many is "lots"? Please try seamonkey or firefox. Mozilla 1.7.x is no longer supported. http://www.mozilla.org/projects/seamonkey/
I *am* using seamonkey. BTW: Both branches have this problem. It seems the history file access is slow.
What versions (buildIDs) do you see this with? comment 0 says "1.7.12"
(In reply to comment #3) > What versions (buildIDs) do you see this with? comment 0 says "1.7.12" > Yes. BTW: I'm running gentoo. All versions of mozilla/seamonkey/firefox I ever tried had this problem (at least on linux - didnt check others) Can you point me to the code which is actually doing this ? (beginning from the point where the user hit 'DEL' in the bookmark viewer).
Any news on this issue ?
- Mozilla 1.7 is dead. - History is being completely revamped for SeaMonkey 2.0. Please recheck with a trunk build and file a new bug if you still see the problem.
