Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 185125
"starting web browser" shows for a long time
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:27 EST
On the latest FC5, do the following:
1. Click the web browser button on the panel
2. Wait for ff to show up
3. Click again
4. Wait for ff to open a new window
after step 4, the "starting web browser" will still stay there until the button
times out. This should not happen, it should go away as soon as firefox launches.
This is not necessarily the fault of firefox, but this is a general problem with
the way application startup feedback works. We need to figure out a general
solution to use across all software.
Assigning to Matthias so he can decide what we should do.
No, this is probably a problem with firefox itself. startup notification is a
known and solved problem; firefox just needs to implement it right if it's not.
Ray is right. gnome-terminal is similar in that it opens a new toplevel for
each button click, and it has correct startup notification. Firefox needs
to be fixed to do the right thing.
This is really bug 156710
