Description

17 years ago
Sometimes, on Windows NT 4.0 (not sure whether this happens on other OSs), after
shutting down Mozilla, the process will live on, still taking up memory, and
also, it seems, CPU cycles. In fact, the CPU usage will stay at 100% until I
kill the process. All of this is according to the Windows NT Task Manager.
I've seen this happen several times recently, but don't yet have a way to
reliably reproduce. I'll keep my eyes open and report back with the necessary
steps, if I can figure out what they are.

I used to see this as well, but haven't seen this in the last few weeks. Casey,
which build ID are you using?

On Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; WinNT4.0; en-US; rv:0.9.1+) Gecko/20010608, running 
on NT4.0 server service pack 6A, closing mozilla close running proccess as 
expected, I'm going to mark it as worksforme, is worth of it making sure you 
have service pack 6A installed with a current mozilla build.
Poster if the problem continues showing after that please feel free to reopen 
the bug.
