Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 196293
"Save image as" takes forever
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:35 EST
Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Right click an image
2. Choose "Save image as"
3. Choose a folder
4. Click "Save"
For 3-4 minutes (!) firefox consumes 99% CPU and does not react to user input.
This operation should last 1-2 seconds. Konqueror does it in this time.
It does not matter wether the image is displayed in an html context or if I do
"View image" first. Even images from my harddrive ("File" "Open file") take so
long to save to a different folder.
Fedora Core 5 is no longer supported, could you please reproduce this with the
updated version of the currently supported distribution (Fedora Core 6, or
Fedora 7, or Rawhide)? If this issue turns out to still be reproducible, please
let us know in this bug report. If after a month's time we have not heard back
from you, we will have to close this bug as CANTFIX.
Setting status to NEEDINFO, and awaiting information from the reporter.
Thanks in advance.
I got rid of this behaviour by using a new user profile in firefox. I don't know
which setting caused the probem in the first place.
