User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:11.0a1) Gecko/20111117 Firefox/11.0a1 Build ID: 20111117030939 Steps to reproduce: set Browser.cache.memory.enable on false Actual results: Pages wont load anymore Expected results: Pages should load ?
I encountered the same problem starting with the 2011/11/16 64-bit nightly on 64-bit Win 7. Clicking on any bookmark, fire fox goes though the 'connecting...' process, but the result is an empty New Tab. Setting Browser.cache.memory.enable to True (thanks, CruNcher!) restores expected operations.
I encountered the same problem. A profile I created about a week ago stopped loading pages today (and an older profile also wasn't loading pages). I created a new profile, synced my preferences, and loaded some extensions. The new profile worked for a while, then stopped working. After setting browser.cache.memory.enable to true each profile started loading pages again. (I'm not sure what caused browser.cache.memory.enable to be set to false.)
[STR] 1. Start Firefox clean profile 2. browser.cache.memory.enable to be set to false in about:config 3. Re-Start Firefox 4.

Created attachment 575433 [details] [diff] [review] Patch v1 Henri, this should fix your patch as well.
And thanks a lot, Alice!
[Triage Comment] What is the user scenario in which Browser.cache.memory.enable=false would occur and thus cause this bug?
Users can manually change the value of this preference, and some add-ons change it as well.
Comment on attachment 575433 [details] [diff] [review] Patch v1 [Triage Comment] Approving for Aurora uplift given the user effect, the low-risk nature of this bug, and the fact that some add-ons change this setting (thus causing page load issues).
