Public bug reported:
Binary package hint: firefox-3.0
When accessing certain sites the browser becomes unusable during
Let me explain this with a practical example:
When I click the field to load all comments the FF window becomes
unusable. It locks up completely. Even though it's a lot of comments
data wise that is not really exciting since they are usually not more
than 2 lines long. Sometimes waiting solves the problem but it can take
several minutes until the window becomes usable again. When I switch to
another workspace and back nothing of the FF window is rendered except
for a few artifacts. All operations concerning FF come to a screeching
halt when this happens, downloads won't continue and all I can do is to
Force Quit the browser and re-open it again.
I don't know for certain if this is bad programming on the website's
this to earlier version because the largest comments section so far had
about 600-700 comments and I never had any problems with that neither
with FF3B5 nor all pre-3 versions.
I use FF 3 RC1 on Ubuntu Hardy with the proprietary ATi fglrx driver
which I have extracted into .deb packages for my distro.
