Downloading a 1 gig file will cause the Droid 2 to run out of memory and reboot


(Firefox for Android Graveyard :: General, defect)

Not set



Tracking Status
fennec 2.0b3+ ---


(Reporter: nhirata, Assigned: wesj)



(2 files, 4 obsolete files)

1. go to the app store and install SysMonitor
2. go to
3. long tap the 1 gb file and save
4. open the System Notifications
5. wait

Expected: the device would say that there's not enough space
Actual: the device will try to download and reboot after a while.

Wes, do we get the right file size? Does getAvailableSpace just not work?
Assignee: nobody → wjohnston
I do see a number coming from getAvailableSpace that seems reasonable. Trying to reproduce...
Group: mozilla-confidential
why is this Mozilla confidential?
Not sure. If I did that it was an unintentional click.

I did eventually see the device reboot, even though I have plenty of space available on my SD card. (> 14GB)

Attached file Logcat
Attaching a logcat report from the download. There's probably a lot there we don't care about, but I wanted to save it somewhere. At a first glance, this looks like an OOM (not disk space) problem to me.
This is likely due to progressbars in the notification we are using. A simple script that just creates a progress notification and increments it a whole bunch over a few minutes will also eventually freeze. Likewise, there are some reports on stack overflow about similar problems:

Still building to test. If this is the problem, maybe we limit updates to the notifications (i.e. only update the bar if the change is greater than x%)?
Attached patch Patch v1 (obsolete) — Splinter Review
This changes the progress bars to only update when a certain percentage change has occurred (1% here), or when the text changes (trying to make sure we support changing the text without changing the percentage and vice versa).

I have run some simple tests with faked progress bars here and this seems fine. Trying a download with a larger file (ubuntu iso) now.

Good catch!

From those links it seems this is indeed a bug in the Android OS. I can't find a bug in their tracker for it though, perhaps we should file one, once we are sure that is the issue here.

While you're here, please use NumberFormat.getPercentInstance().format(aProgress / aProgressMax); 

r+ other than that, but I want to double check your formatting code

Patch v1

>             text = percent + "%";
err.... I meant use that here. I think percent should be a double for it to work though.

Revised to use NumberFormat stuff.

as discussed on irc, percent ranges from 0 to 1, but the threshold is 1

Sorry bout that. Testing this right now, but it has been running for around 15 minutes (the numbers update and everything now) and my system is still responsive.

I can't verify this bug because I get "The connection has timed out" page.. Does someone else see this too?
I verified this on Mozilla/5.0 (Android;Linux armv7l;rv:9.0a1)Gecko/20110911 Firefox/9.0a1 Fennec/9.0a1.
1. The device is not rebooted anymore
2. The message saying that "there's not enough space" is still missing. Instead, an empty message box is displayed.(for this issue, bug #686286 was logged)
