Description of problem:
I discovered a really weird mozilla-issue. The first time I use the
keyboard after launch mozilla hangs, and stays like that for 3-5
minutes. After the hang it works fine again. If I used the mouse only
I didn't have this problem.
I asked some of the nice people in #mozilla @ irc.mozilla.org and they
said this was because type-as-you-find uses sound, and sound is
enabled at first keystroke. Going to prefrences and disabling _all_
find-as-you-type options fixed the problem. Just disabling the sound
didn't do the trick.
For your information I use ALSA drivers from freshrpms for sound,
gnome as my desktop enviroment.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Tested with 1.4.1 and 1.5
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Launch mozilla
2. Press a key
Yeah, it wants to use sound and will block if another app happens to
be using it. Should be using esd, or the equiv.
