I recently purchased a Samsung epic 4G. Fennec works for ~5 page loads and then it begins to hang. Eventually the browser hangs completely and a restart is needed. Basically it is unusable as the default browser.
Matt, a couple things might be helpful here: 1. Are there any pages that you see most of the hangs happening on? 2. How many tabs do you have open? 3. Are you using a clean profile?
1. It didn't seem to matter with the page, although I was mostly using www.drudgereport.com and cnn.com I like my news fair and balanced :). 2. mostly just one, but only up to 3. 3. sort of: usually this is a complete reload of the browser. No sync on at this point. So only dirty with use in the current session.
This sounds similar to bug 597093 which was fixed a few days ago. Do you still see this in the latest nightly build?
It is harder to reproduce with chrome methodjit off, but still doable
How are you reproducing? Install nightly/build build, browse around to a few sites, hang? To be clear, is this content hanging, or the UI itself? I got the UI to hang a few days ago, but haven't been able to lately. Content can seem to hang because of JS bugs, see bug 600304 f.e.
UI I've only seen hang with methodjit on. Content hangs less frequently, but still seeing it fairly often, but have been unable to get a useful stack on them.
Are you still seeing these in nightly builds?
I will try the nightlies tonite.
Marking as WFM. Jit being disabled seems to have made Fennec work on Epic.
