Nightly becomes non-responsive when saving a download to a network drive


(Firefox :: File Handling, defect)

Windows 7




(Reporter: alex_mayorga, Unassigned)



0. Mount a network drive
1. Download a "large" file and save it to the network drive, I spotted the issue downloading jdk-7u9-linux-i586.tar.gz from

Nightly becomes non-responsive during the download and with Windows 7's "Resource Monitor" shows "One or more threads of firefox.exe are waiting to finish network I/O" when inspecting firefox.exe.
Dependent on Bug 699854 ?
Yup, seems like this depends on bug 699854, marking as such.
Depends on: asyncDownloadMgr

Alex, is problem gone now that the above bug is fixed?
Component: Untriaged → File Handling
Flags: needinfo?(alex_mayorga)
Product: Firefox → Core

Unfortunately this bug still reproduces on Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64; rv:22.0) Gecko/20130311 Firefox/22.0 ID:20130311030946 CSet: eccf45749400

The only thing that changed is the download page is now

Nightly remains "not responding" for the entire duration of the download.
Flags: needinfo?(alex_mayorga)
