Description rob 2007-08-10 16:13:21 EDT
Description of problem:
firefox 1.5 x86_64 stalls on ext javascript animations, but firefox 1.5 i686
works fine.  there is some discussion that seems to indicate this is a
repeatable problem here:


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEL4/5 x86_64 firefox 1.5.x

How reproducible:
reproducible every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. load http://extjs.com/deploy/ext/docs/index.html in x86_64 firefox build
2. load http://extjs.com/deploy/ext/docs/index.html in i686 firefox build
3. compare 
Actual results:
the 32 bit browser loads correctly, while the 64 bit browser either takes
forever to finally load, or never actually loads.

Expected results:
consistent behavior between 64 and 32 bit browsers.

Additional info:
F7 firefox 2.0.x x86_64 is not affected by this problem.

Comment 2 Matěj Cepl 2007-08-15 09:54:58 EDT
Surely it works perfectly on firefox 2.* with FC7, and firefox 1.5* on slightly
outdated RHEL5 ( gives me an timeout error webpage.
Comment 3 Matěj Cepl 2008-03-06 11:02:43 EST
err, my fault -- all my RHEL systems are i386.
Comment 4 Matěj Cepl 2008-03-06 11:03:56 EST
Reporter, is this still reproduceable with the latest upgrade of RHEL?
Comment 5 rob 2008-03-08 14:42:52 EST
with firefox- on x86_64 it is slightly better, but still takes
more than 30 seconds to load.

Additional info:
firefox3-3.0-0.beta2.2.el5 on x86_64 loads the test page in 2 seconds.
Comment 6 Martin Stransky 2008-03-10 06:46:36 EDT
so it's fixed in firefox3-3.0-0.beta2.2.el5, right?
