Description

4 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.2; WOW64; rv:20.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/20.0 (Beta/Release)
Build ID: 20130326150557

Steps to reproduce:

Had a tab open with a large image (4+MB) and my connection to the host wasn't very fast. Closed the tab before the image was even 1/10th loaded.


Actual results:

According to my bandwidth monitor, the image continued to download in the background despite the tab having been closed.


Expected results:

The data should have stopped coming through immediately.

I think this is expected.
Justin, any thoughts please ?

I'm pretty sure this is a known bug in imagelib, and that it happens on Gecko as well.

Sorry, I meant s/Gecko/desktop Firefox/, as opposed to B2G.  Except it looks like you're on desktop.

It's still early.  :)
