Firefox wakes up quite often on my box. Web sites with flash content seem to do
this more. Not good for fixing, I know.
  34.4% (111.8)       firefox-bin : schedule_timeout (process_timeout)
Comment 1 Christopher Aillon 2007-07-06 20:06:21 EDT
I believe this is http://www.linuxpowertop.org/known.php#firefox which is
actually a bug in nspr.
Comment 2 Kai Engert (:kaie) 2007-07-06 20:26:36 EDT
The issue that caillons points us to is actually in the Mozilla application code
(not nspr, not nss).

The fix has been picked up for the upcoming next version of Firefox (2.0.0.5,
release date unknown).

If you would like to test earlier, you could download and run the latest nightly
1.8 branch build of Firefox (not available as rpm).
Comment 3 Christopher Aillon 2007-07-06 20:29:29 EDT
Ah, so it is.  I saw a bunch of PR_* stuff listed in the bug and incorrectly
made the assumption it was nspr.

Wait a minute, the patch is approved, but not yet checked in. I will land it
into upstream Mozilla today, so please wait 1-2 days before you do the above and
test. Thanks!

WFM I think - thanks!

I think that by any stretch of imagination this bug could be considered NEW.
Kai, should it be ASSIGNed to you or to caillon?

Not sure why you say it's NEW.

According to comment 5 the bug is confirmed fixed in Firefox 2.0.0.5.

I'll reassign this bug to the firefox component and mark it fixed.
