Description

6 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:13.0a1) Gecko/20120205 Firefox/13.0a1
Build ID: 20120205031129

Steps to reproduce:

1. Open a web page with several links
2. Open several links in new tabs
3. Click the + icon next to the address bar
4. Select a different tab


Actual results:

The generating of the tab previews block the ui and Firefox becomes unresponsive for 1sec+ until the previews are generated


Expected results:

The user can switch/close tabs without waiting for the previews to finish generating.
