stuck throbber with blocked jar loads


(Core :: DOM: Navigation, defect, P3)





(Reporter: dcamp, Unassigned)




The spinner sometimes gets stuck after getting an error page for an unsafe jar load.

initially found it from location bar.
Flags: blocking1.9?
Flags: blocking1.8.1.11?
For what it's worth, I'd tried changing the error code the jar code uses to one of the other ones docshell handles (like NS_ERROR_NET_RESET, I think).  If I did that, the problem went away.  So there's _something_ in the error page changes for the new error code that's not being happy.  I just couldn't tell what, and didn't really have time to debug it.
Summary: stuck spinner with blocked jar loads → stuck throbber with blocked jar loads
Flags: blocking1.9? → blocking1.9+
Priority: -- → P3
a branch fix would be nice to have but not blocking.
Flags: blocking1.8.1.12? → wanted1.8.1.x+
Flags: tracking1.9+ → wanted-next+
Incidentally, I followed the instructions and found something curious in Seamonkey.  If you have it set to open all links in new tabs, the throbber just keeps going after all tabs related to the test case are closed.
