[Firefox] Sometimes stops rendering

Description

Sometimes after browsing for a while in Firefox, many tabs, clicking on a link changes the Firefox window title, the favicon, it loads the new site for a while, however, the old site is still visible on screen, not the new one.

The old site is visible, but is not navigable, though; I cannot scroll the page although a scrollbar is present, can't click links etc.

Firefox 2.0.0.17, hrev28736, I've seen this for some time now.

In this state, the tab bar is out of refresh as well- I can click on the tab bar, go to another tab, even change the site I'm viewing, but the tab bar doesn't rerender and the same tab is drawn as active all the time.

I can even middle-mouse-click on the tabbar to close the tabs, and even then the tab bar doesn't redraw.

I hit this bug too, FFox 2.0.0.18 on hrev28734. Description is the same, with these remarks :

  • on a long page on witch rendering has stopped, scrolling up/down restores the "good" portions of the page.
  • closing all tabs except one and loading a new site in the last sometimes fixes the problem for a little while.
  • but the long term solution is to close and reopen FFox.

Also not always when page rendering has stopped, the tab bar gets locked.

That's a Firefox bug that happens under BeOS as well, btw. I don't think we should track those over here.

This can be moved to http://ports.haiku-files.org with a component of www-client / mozilla-firefox
