1. Navigate to https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/40949268/emcc/bugs/locks_up_android/locks_up_android.html with e.g. a Nexus 4 Android phone. 2. Wait until 'deviceorientation' and 'devicemotion' events start getting printed in the text box on the page. 3. Try to refresh the page, either by navigating to it again in the title bar, or pressing the page refresh button. Or try to go to another page by typing in the address to that page. Observed: The navigation operation is never performed, but the page keeps on printing deviceorientation and devicemotion events infinitely. Expected: The browser navigates to the new page in a responsive manner.
Thanks for the test-case. I was able to reproduce; it looks like Gecko gets into a very bad state that wont allow the user to navigate even after tab close. It just so happens that navigating to websites is an important thing. Tracking?
Doug, who could have a look at this?
