User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:18.104.22.168) Gecko/20061204 Firefox/22.214.171.124 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:126.96.36.199) Gecko/20061204 Firefox/188.8.131.52 On Windows Vista & Firefox, the browser crashes very often when logging into Facebook and then switching tabs right afterward. Since I prefer not to wait when signing into the site, I have other tabs open and would like to switch to those while Facebook signs in. But after clicking Login and then Control-TAB to switch to another tab, Firefox freezes and I would have to end-task the process. If I wait for Facebook to sign in fully, and THEN switch to the other tab, Firefox does not crash. This problem does NOT happen when I use Windows XP. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to facebook.com in Firefox when using Windows Vista, make sure at least one other tab is open also. 2. Type in username and password for Facebook, and click login. 3. Immediately Control-TAB to the other tab while Facebook is signing in, Firefox will more often than not crash. Actual Results: Windows Vista proved to be a disappointment so I am no longer using it. Expected Results: The browser should be able to handle simultaneously Facebook signing in and user switching to another tab.
OS: Windows Vista → Windows XP
Summary: Firefox crashes on Windows Vista when logging into Facebook and then immediately switching tabs → Firefox 2.0 crashes on when logging into Facebook and then immediately switching tabs
WFM on Windows Vista using today's nightly, Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:184.108.40.206pre) Gecko/20070208 BonEcho/220.127.116.11pre. Reporter: Do you have any extensions installed?
WFM, Firefox 2.0 on Windows Vista.
Shiyue, does it work if you start Firefox in Safe Mode? (it temporarily disables plugins and add-ons, this test will help us narrow down the cause of the problem) -- See http://kb.mozillazine.org/Safe_Mode
Seems like version 18.104.22.168 has fixed this problem, because I haven't experienced it since upgrading.
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:22.214.171.124) Gecko/20070309 Firefox/126.96.36.199 This problem only started when upgraded to 188.8.131.52 Tried this also in safe mode and the same happened. Currently won't even let me log in without crashing regardless of other tabs open or only facebook open.
