Description

8 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9.1.6) Gecko/20091218 Lightning/1.0b1pre SeaMonkey/2.0.1
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9.1.6) Gecko/20091218 Lightning/1.0b1pre SeaMonkey/2.0.1

I have a site bookmarked that Seamonkey detects as having an invalid security certificate. When scrolling through bookmarks, when I attempt to scroll past this certificate, Seamonkey freezes with the bookmarks displayed. The rest of the desktop is also blocked. Eventually (seems to be around 120 seconds or so), a prompt regarding the certificate is displayed. It only has view or cancel options, and while Seamonkey is thinking about it, nothing else can be done.

Earlier versions (1.1.18 for instance) also detected the certificate as invalid, but returned an 'ok', 'view' or 'cancel' prompt, and did not block the system while checking the certificate.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Bookmark a site with an invalid security certificate. Put in a subfolder.
2.Scroll through the subfolder.
3.As soon as the scroll hits the site with the invalid certificate, everything stops.
Actual Results:  
Seamonkey is blocked, with bookmarks still open, and the rest of the desktop is also blocked.

Expected Results:  
I would expect to be informed, and allowed to chose whether to view the certificate, cancel the operation or accept the certificate. I would not expect the system to block on the failure.

I can provide two graphics of the initial error box and also of the certificate, once the block times out and I can control the system.

I have exactly the same behaviour on three different installations of Seamonkey, all of them Linux, two using the Slackware build, one using a custom build. One build (Slackware) is x86_64.

When the URL is checked using 'Manage Bookmarks', the blocking does not occur, and the certificate error is displayed very rapidly, and can be dismissed rapidly without causing a block to the rest of the system.

Default theme is in use in all instances
Can you reproduce with Firefox v3.5.7?

Can you still reproduce this with a current trunk nightly? And what do you exactly mean by "scroll through the subfolder?"

Sorry, should have come back to report. I'm currently running 2.0.10 under several different versions of Linux. The problem no longer occurs.

Should also have been clearer in my original explanation. I have a lot of bookmarks, divided into different categories. If I opened the bookmarks and scrolled the mouse through one of the sub-categories which listed a site with a faulty certificate, I would find all progress blocked and would normally have little option but to shut Seamonkey down.

I have a new bug, probably related to this, but I'm still working on getting an easy way to reproduce it. I'll open a new bug for it once I can explain it clearly and demonstrate the problem.
