Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 208213
Firefox Does Not Work On a Network that Does Not Support TCP DNS
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:44 EST
Description of problem:
Firefox stops working (after some update) when no tcp dns is available on the
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
On affected systes, always.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install Fedora on a machine with UDP only DNS support
3.Run firefox to find that it has stopped working
Firefox does not work. All other dns does, including other browsers.
Firefox should work.
It was determined that the network (in the test case the Qwest DSL actiontec
modem) does not support any tcp DNS. However, udp must have worked at some point
because the firefox that ships with fedora core 5 seems to work fine on these
dig @modem +notcp redhat.com (works)
dig @modem +tcp redhat.com (does not work)
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.
Yes, I will try later today.
firefox-184.108.40.206-2.fc7 is tested and working when there is no TCP DNS on network.
Thank you very much, that's nice to hear. Closing the bug.
