Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 246083
guided bug entry
Last modified: 2007-09-12 11:07:13 EDT
Description of problem:
Entering bugs against Fedora using guided bug entry
causes Firefox to slow down to the point of unusability
when selecting the component to report against.
100% across FF 2 on WinXP Pro, FF2 on Fedora 7,
FF1.5 on FC6. IE7 on WinXP Pro shows similar
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select guided bug entry
2. Click next until "select product" select Fedora
3. Click next to get to "select component" page.
Firefox takes 100% cpu. Dragging the scrollbar
for the component list is very slow, and one releasing
the mouse it snaps back to the start of the list.
Should be possible to select your component.
This is effectively bad enough to prevent guided
bug reporting for Fedora using Firefox.
IE7 on Windows XP spins at 100% for a while, but
does bring up the component list eventually.
Before the component list comes up the selection box displays:
After loading IE7 reports errors on the page:
Lines 742, 713, 684, 655, 626, 597, 568, 539, 510, 481, 423, 278, 191, 75
Error: Object expected
Error: 'options' is null or not an object
Guided bug entry is indeed broken at the moment and is being looked at.
*** Bug 283861 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
This should be fixed now. Please reopen this bug if the problem persists.
If 'current' is 2.18-rh as currently at bugzilla.redhat.com then the scrolling
problem described above persists in FF 184.108.40.206 on F7 and 1.0 on WinXP (the two
versions I have here to test on). IE6 on WinXP works, though it reports the
error on the page:
Error: 'tms' is undefined
Proceeding through the reporting process I find that the version select menu
shows the same problem but the architecture select menu does not. Will check
again later and reopen if the problem has not resolved itself.
