Description

18 years ago
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.

I discovered it while loading a bugzilla query and trying to open a bug in a
new window while the results were loading.

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.
Assignee: valeski → danm
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.

loadgroup issues with docshell ->mscott.

This seems to be working okay now, so unless there's any unresolved issues maybe
this one can be closed. Marking as WORKSFORME.
