This happens every time I attempt to load a page from starbulletin.com before it can finish loading, but I am not sure it will reproduce on other systems. It is possible that it is related to a plugin conflict with Flash or some other content on the page (which may not be there tomorrow). Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: Visit www.starbulletin.com in Firefox, or any other pages on the site Actual Results: Firefox hangs and changes to being identified as (Not Responding) by Windows Vista Expected Results: Loaded the page as expected
works for me using both 184.108.40.206 and latest trunk (Gecko/2007121905 Minefield/3.0b3pre). But I'm on Windows XP.
Please try a new firefox profile for a test - http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile_manager
I just looked at this page, with a fairly late hourly build, and I see no slow-downs, hangs or not-responding fade pages on this site. Site loads quickly, and even looked at a link in the blogs called 'is it art', lots of graphics on the page, and Minefield responds just fine, even scrolling is decent. Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.9b3pre) Gecko/2007121912 Minefield/3.0b3pre Firefox/3.0 ID:2007121912
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9b3pre) Gecko/2007121923 Minefield/3.0b3pre It doesn't hang but the ads take a lot of CPU time. I don't see the problem with my default profile so I think Adblock Plus is filtering them out.
There are a number of other sites that seem to result in this same issue on VISTA. The same sites in Firefox on my XP machines don't have the problem. Anyone able to duplicate it? Anyone able to duplicate it? It appears that the only person commenting above to have tried it in Vista (Windows NT 6.0) was using the minefield, perhaps it was fixed in that?
