Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 154115
firefox gets stuck
Last modified: 2013-03-01 00:14:50 EST
Description of problem:
firefox has a UI deadlock that required me to go to a text console and kill it
to be able to use ANYTHING in X
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1) Put an RSS feed on your personal toolbar folder, one that causes a dropdown
"bookmark like" menu to come down when you click it
2) have a website auto-reload itself in the browser after like a minute
3) have the dns of that website no longer work
4) pull down the bookmark like menu
when the dialog box from the DNS timeout comes up, it is modal however it comes
up *behind* the RSS bookmark like menu. Which means that you can't click it to
go away, however the bookmark like menu doesn't honor any input either until the
modal dialog has gone away. But you can't since the menu is in the way. This is
the UI equivalent of a deadlock.
ALso this dialog has a mouse grab so you can't do anything in X anymore at all.
Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.
Reporter, could you confirm please, that this bug still could be reproduced with
the updated release of the supported version of Fedora (FC5, FC6, or F7)?
If yes, please, reopen this bug with additional information how it is possible
to reproduce this bug.
In meantime, I have to close this bug as CANTFIX, because it is reported against
not longer supported distribution.
Thanks in advance.
