This test failure happens for Nightly and ESR builds on the Windows Vista machine. I would assume that it is similar to bug 767820 and we could fix it by making the testcase local. Remus, would you mind analyzing the test and trying to create a search engine we can use locally? We should also upload this engine to litmus-data.
We cannot run a search engine locally because we need to have the absolute path to the file and I think we can only access it by http. We can try using the file on mozqa.com.
We'll try to reproduce this with the system under load (using a Pi calculator).

Comment on attachment 637893 [details] [diff] [review] Patch v1 (skip) Anthony is out today. So Jeff, we have to disable this test because it is constanly failing on one of our boxes. We have to find a fix first which will take at least 2 or 3 days. Thanks.

This test was only failing on our Windows Vista machine. I have replaced it with a fresh copy and backed-out this skip patch on default. Lets see if we still get failures today. http://hg.mozilla.org/qa/mozmill-tests/rev/32421e34b8d8

This failure didn't happen today: http://mozmill-ci.blargon7.com/#/functional/report/4c461f9adf1253771fc6455667051b72 I would kinda like to wait for tomorrows results until enabling the tests again on the other branches.

Remus, can you please re-enable the Litmus tests by tomorrow? I would like to wait for some more results on the other branches.

I can now see this application disconnect problem on the broken vista machine I copied locally yesterday. I assume it's also related to bug 770821 but I will have to check.
Status: RESOLVED → REOPENED
Resolution: WORKSFORME → ---
The page which gets opened by the IMDB search is: http://www.imdb.com/find?q=firefox&sourceid=mozilla-search It contains a Flash object which causes the freeze of Firefox and an application disconnect after a minute. So we can wait for bug 770821 or make the test local so we do not touch external content with a Flash object embedded.
Status: REOPENED → ASSIGNED
Depends on: 770821
Now with Mozmill 1.5.14 released this issue should not happen anymore.
