Description G.Wolfe Woodbury 2005-01-10 17:50:08 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5)
Gecko/20041111 Firefox/1.0

Description of problem:
Fresh install of rawhide 2005.01.09 on AMD k6-2@400MHz (320MB RAM
other standard hardware)

Running firefox with IPv6 enabled causes firefox to consume large
amounts of CPU without opening a window in 10+ minutes of running.

Disabling ipv6 (net-pf-10 off) allows firefox to run quite well.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. fresh install of rawhide (2005.01.09)
2. default setup
3. try to run firefox

Actual Results:  firefox "hangs" consuming CPU time and not timeing out

Expected Results:  firefox should open a window and proceed normally

David can you reproduce this?  I know you use ipv6.
Comment 2 David Woodhouse 2005-02-23 19:51:19 EST
Firefox is running fine here on rawhide here with IPv6 support present. Both
when I have a global IPv6 address and without. Suggest you use strace or GDB to
see what it's doing.

I haven't tried rawhide on anything but ppc, but I see no reason why i386 should
be different in this respect.
Comment 3 Matthew Miller 2005-02-23 20:18:09 EST
David -- did you have firefox running *before* 1.0-8 on this system? (See bug
Comment 4 David Woodhouse 2005-02-23 20:33:26 EST
Yes. I've had firefox on this system since 0.10.1-1.0PR1.21 when the PPC build
was fixed (bug #135225)
