Confirmed on Windows XP, latest trunk.
Maybe caused by Bug 212633 ? On my Vista computer I see no hang, but vertical scrolling is nearly impossible. I see also a superfluous horizontal scrollbar, but I think this is a different bug.
Vertical scrolling was very slow for me, as was changing tabs.
The problem is almost certainly just that we create a temporary surface for blurring the whole box irrespective of the dirty area. We should optimize box-shadow drawing so that blur computation is restricted to the dirty area. It's a little tricky but not all that hard.
Yup, that made it nice and zippy.
The work in 458031 should fix this.
Fixed by checkin for bug 458031.
This was also an issue on OS X. Now I can verify that the fix on bug 458031 solves the hang. Tested with Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.5; en-US; rv:1.9.2a1pre) Gecko/20081203 Minefield/3.2a1pre For now setting the TM to 1.9.2a1. We should adjust when the patch has been landed on 1.9.1 branch.
Bug 458031 has been checked in to 1.9.1 branch already. marking fixed1.9.1 here too and adjusting TM.
Sorry for my last comment. We shouldn't change TM. Branch 1.9.1 and trunk are different nowadays. Setting the keyword is enough.
Verified on 1.9.1 with Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.5; en-US; rv:1.9.1b3pre) Gecko/20081221 Shiretoko/3.1b3pre ID:20081221020430
