Other adresses like "heise.de" work without problems, but "hotmail" makes the browser hang. I searched a bit on the profile and the history is realy large and contains a lot of "hotmail" entries - so maybe thats the reason why it is so slow. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Install my profile 2. Type "hotmail" into the location bar 3. FireFox hangs and consumes 100% CPU Actual Results: it should not block Expected Results: it blocks I guess this bug is only reproduceable when you use one of my two profiles, which I will upload shortly.
Bugzilla does only allow 300kb files, whereas my profiles are bzip2-compressed 8m large. Does anybody know a place where I could upload them? Btw. the problem goes away if I call "clean private data". lg Clemens

I uploaded the two profiles to http://uploaded.to/?id=eb3vpd Sorry that I had to use such an ... upload site, I don't have any webspace. I don't know how long they will be available, so best thing would be to download them and put them somewhere on a mozilla ftp server or something like that. lg Clemens
in latest builds this problem appeared again. for me minefield freeze for 2-3 seconds after every typed or deleted letter. i.e. after every change. also it hangs about same time when scrolling results, after every pressed up/down key and after clicking on the item.
Yes, this does appear to be a dupe of bug 414229. What's happening is: as you type into the location bar, your history is being searched for entries that match what you typed, to show in the new autocomplete drop-down (dubbed “Awesomebar” — http://mozillalinks.org/wp/2007/11/firefox-3-location-bar-just-became-almighty/ ). That's why clearing your history relieves the symptom.

Bug 451915 - move Firefox/Places bugs to Firefox/Bookmarks and History. Remove all bugspam from this move by filtering for the string "places-to-b-and-h". In Thunderbird 3.0b, you do that as follows: Tools | Message Filters Make sure the correct account is selected. Click "New" Conditions: Body contains places-to-b-and-h Change the action to "Delete Message". Select "Manually Run" from the dropdown at the top. Click OK. Select the filter in the list, make sure "Inbox" is selected at the bottom, and click "Run Now". This should delete all the bugspam. You can then delete the filter. Gerv
