I close all my applications (including Firefox) before hibernating, but when I come back from hibernation and start Firefox, it times out retrieving all pages.

I verified that I could ping the servers from which I was trying to download pages, and then started Internet Explorer to see if it also had the problem.  It correctly retrieved pages.  I then tried starting firefox again, and it correctly retrieved pages.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Close all applications and hibernate
2. Resume from hibernate
3. Start Firefox, try to retrieve
4. Firefox times out
5. Ping
6. Close Firefox (not sure this is necessary)
7. Launch IE, try to retrieve
8. Launch Firefox again, try again.
Actual Results:  
Firefox would not retrieve until after I had used IE

Expected Results:  
Firefox shouldn't depend on IE.  :)

Did you have the problem when you were using FF version 1.5?

Check Delay_or_hang_waking_from_standby at

please report back your results.
Severity: normal → critical

No.  I never ran into it while using v 1.5.  My machine at that time would not hibernate correctly.

Regarding the Delay_or_hang_waking_from_standby link, note that it says

"As a workaround, close the browser before placing the computer in standby/hibernation."

I am closing the browser before placing the computer in hibernation.

I also don't experience the other symptoms (high CPU usage, or the browser hanging) mentioned.

It simply times out trying to retrieve the requested page.

In the last two days I read a bug that (iirc recently) patched something in this area on trunk for MAC.  I can't find it to save my soul, but I suggest you try a trunk build briefly to see if it's gone.
