Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 443725
Critical hanging bug with fix available upstream
Last modified: 2008-04-29 15:04:22 EDT
This is a pretty high profile bug (declared a blocker upstream with a heavy
heart by Mike Shaver) causing xulrunner based apps like Epiphany and Firefox to
hang with 100% cpu usage and doing so for a lot of people.
A fix has just been posted to the original bug but not checked in yet but it
looks fairly safe (one-liner) and should probably be included in the F9 release
if at all possible.
added to xulrunner-1.9-0.56.beta5.fc9
Fix is available in rawhide, and I can't reproduce the problem with any of the
sites mentioned in the upstream bug.
