Description

7 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:2.0.1) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/4.0.1
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:2.0.1) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/4.0.1

Following system resume, FF stopped responding accompanied by extreme disk read @ $Msft. Closing the program and restarting Firefox led to a second re-occurrence. Third time succeeded in restoring FF to normal functioning after killing all processes associated with FF.

Windows error log doesn't provide much info, but is attached.

Reproducible: Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Leave FF open prior to system sleep
2.Allow system to sleep
3.Resume system

Actual Results:  
Will update with continued observation.

Expected Results:  
Firefox should resume gracefully by reading cache quickly/properly.
