This has happened to me a couple of times on Windows and on Mac. When trying to connect to a site which is down, instead of eventually getting an error page, Firefox seems to "stick" on trying to load the page. The throbber keeps throbbing, and "Waiting for [site] ..." stays in the status bar. After that point, nothing seems to be able to get rid of that stuck state: reloading the connection, opening a new tab and trying to connect to the site, flushing DNS, toggling online/offline, nothing I've tried works. Meanwhile, ping and other applications are able to connect to the site in question. STR: 1. Try to connect to a site which is temporarily unreachable 2. Fail to connect 3. Wait until site comes back online 4. Try to connect again (by hitting reload, or opening a new tab) Expected: connect to site Actual: fail to connect to site (throbber throbs endlessly, "Waiting for [site]..." stays in status bar) Reed says he's seen this, too.
