Since, I have installed Firefox 2.0, it stops responding randomly. I have observed this problem more often, when I don't have a wireless internet connection in vicinity and I open the browser. My homepage is http://www.google.com/ig?hl=en. So it tries to open the homepage and it stops responding. I have taken a screen shot and posted it on the above URL. When I uninstall FF 2.0 and go back to a 1.5, the problem stops. Will update, if I find exact steps to reproduce consistently. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1.Set homepage to http://www.google.com/ig?hl=en on a notebook. 2.Go to an area, where u wont find wireless networks. 3.Open the browser. Actual Results: It sometimes stops responding. Expected Results: It should open the page correctly without crashing. No New themes, using the default theme. Two plugins , Flash and Realplayer. No extensions, except for google toobar, which came default with the browser.
The Google Toolbar does not come installed by default in our official builds and is known to cause this exact issue when there is no internet connectivity. Please contact Google via their support newsgroup or see the MozillaZine forums (http://forums.mozillazine.org) for end-user support.
