Description

5 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:13.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/13.0.1
Build ID: 20120614114901

Steps to reproduce:

Used jPlayer to load in many audio files, where the next audio is loaded when the durationchange event of the previous occurs.

See this jsFiddle:
http://jsfiddle.net/Rm7rH/


Actual results:

The first 70 or so audio files are loaded and then the browser fails to load any more.

Audio in other tabs fail at this point. Such as:
http://jsfiddle.net/TFe3C/

NB: Chrome and Opera work fine, loading in all files.


Expected results:

Audio failing in 1 tab should not affect audio in other tabs.

Additionally, the loading should not have failed in the first place, even through jPlayer. (I am it's author.)

I removed jPlayer from the equation in this jsFiddle:

Here the behaviour was different. It often worked on Firefox, but sometimes failed. Oddly, Chrome and Opera failed with this.

When Firefox failed, simply opening a new tab would cause it to burst into life again.

Other info:
The bug was first found after placing http://futurebroadcasts.com/ online. Development testing on the localhost did not exhibit the problem. The bug only occurs when hosted online.

Is this reproducible in a current nightly build?  This sounds a bit like bug 774901.
