If you're loading a long page and you right click a link and choose "Open Link in New Window", it seems to stop loading the current page when it opens the new window.
Can you provide an example URL of a pretty long or graphics-heavy page? It's hard to test this on a DSL connection, everything loads before I can try to repro.
Reassigning as per Don
I discovered it while loading a bugzilla query and trying to open a bug in a new window while the results were loading.
Travis no longer works here. reassigning ownerless bugs to docshell owner, valeski for further triage.
this is a big deal for me, as I open lots of new windows. I'd mark it dogfood, but that might be a little overkill. removing the nsbeta3- for re-triage and adding myself to cc list
-> dan. presumably we not processing events when the new window is coming up.
no, it's not that it just doesn't process the events but eventually gets to them...the old window _stops_ when you try to open the new one.
QA -> jrgm. Does anyone have a handle on why this is happening, and what it would take to fix it? I don't think I'd hold the release for this, or even prioritize it so as to merit significant investigation, but I might be persuaded to take a safe fix.
->gagan, Doesn't sound like a window or event issue, first window thinks it is done, as if the loadGroup has shut down.
someone is calling abort on the previous (currently loading channel) Seems like loadgroup issues with docshell ->mscott.
adding beta3+ after triage mtg.
This seems to be working okay now, so unless there's any unresolved issues maybe this one can be closed. Marking as WORKSFORME.
