Description Derek Atkins 2002-09-11 21:27:56 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.9) Gecko/20020513

Description of problem:
I'm running mozilla on a laptop.  When I suspend/resume and get a new IP
address, mozilla stops accepting input.  If I type C-L and start typing a URL in
the window, it will fail to autocomplete, and if I hit 'return' it will fail to
load the page.  Simiarly, if I type C-Shift-L to enter a URL via the dialog, I
cannot hit 'enter', or click on "open" or "cancel" -- the dialog will just sit
there and mozilla will not do anything.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.run mozilla
2.suspend the laptop
3.resume the laptop in a location where I will obtain a different IP address
4. try to use the mozilla that was running before you suspended

Actual Results:  I cannot enter new URLs or autocomplete

Expected Results:  Mozilla should have continued to work properly.  I needed to
C-q (kill) and restart mozilla for it to work.  This is annoying when I want to
keep pages up across laptop movements.

Are you sure that this is related to the change in IP address and not something
going wrong with the resume?

Comment 2 Derek Atkins 2002-11-11 18:39:53 UTC
Yes, because if I resume back to the same IP address it works just fine.

Comment 3 Warren Togami 2005-04-25 07:49:12 UTC
mozilla itself couldn't handle change of IP address anyway.  anyhow this was
probably fixed long ago.
