sometime in the last few weeks, this has started: 1. ctrl+F 2. start typing Expected: type as many characters as i want, textfield fills with them Actual: after the 3rd (usually, sometimes up to the 5th), the textfield stops showing the characters i'm typing, and the browser is hung for a second or two. after that initial hang, everything is fine. maybe spellcheck? maybe autocomplete?
Requesting blocking due to hang. If we get confirmation from others, block it should.
Can you shark/profile this? I can't reproduce it in a quick test here. Speculatively blocking since hanging in FAYT is a significant regression. Need some reliable STR though, so flagging qawanted and regressionwindow-wanted
Predictably, now that I have reported the bug, I am not able to reproduce it.
I'm able to reproduce it everytime. Ctrl-F, start typing and while the string matches, everything is ok. When the added character doesn't match anymore, firefox freezes and must be killed.
Regression range would be great. I haven't seen the problem myself, and I use FAYT a lot.
(In reply to comment #5) > Regression range would be great. > > I haven't seen the problem myself, and I use FAYT a lot. Ditto. If you can, post a url that you visited while this happened. I have not seen this and I think I find in content 3 - 4 times an hour.
This bug seemingly has not been reproduced by anybody since it was reported, is not WFM, blocks betaN, and is assigned to nobody. I assert that one of the above needs to change. I suggest -> WFM.
I still see it sometimes, I just keep forgetting to make a note of the URL when it happens. It could be an add-on I have is causing it, if nobody else is seeing it :P Also, in reply to comment #2: I can't profile it since it is not reproducible on-demand, and only lasts a couple of seconds.

Notes from the Grand Retriage: without STR, can't take it as a blocker.
