When this happens, Firegestures will get stuck with an issued command in a loop repeating it endlessly. For example, when the extension slows down and I draw the gesture to "Close Tab" the Firegestures will repeat it endlessly till all my tabs are lost! Even scrolling on the tab bar, Firegestures will keep scrolling non-stop and Firefox will become unresponsive. The only way to stop it is to force close Firefox. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Run Firefox with 10-15 tabs open for about 10 hours or when Firegestures starts to slow down in responsiveness. 2.Draw or run a gesture. Actual Results: Firegestures keeps repeating the last gesture command. Causing Firefox to become unresponsive. Expected Results: Firegesture only executes the gesture command once.
I think this is a Firegestures bug, no a Firefox one. CCing the Firegestures developer.
Reporter -> Any update?
I've updated to Firefox 4 with a clean new profile and the problem no longer occurs.
