Hang on loading a page
Last modified: 2016-09-19 21:42:02 EDT
Description of problem: When I load a page in firefox, it hangs saying "Transfering data from X". All I can do is kill it. I have tried waiting for several minutes but its no use, its just completely hung.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 21.0-3.fc19
How reproducible: 9/10
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Load any website in firefox (e.g firefox.org)
Actual results: Firefox hangs.
Expected results: Firefox should load the page.
Can you also please test the steps from https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/How_to_debug_Firefox_problems ?

I can still reproduce following those steps but I'm not sure that clearing of cache/cookies actually work as firefox hangs when I hit the "Clear Now" button. After several seconds, I come back to firefox window to see that its still hung even though the 'clear history' dialog window is gone.
forgot the 'need-info'..
The following command seems to fix the issue:
$ rm ~/.mozilla/plugins/*
I had the following files in there:
I see...so it looks like a problem with some plugin. Would you like to investigate such issue? If so, please try to install those plugins back and check which one causes the problem. Otherwise please close this bug.

Sorry, I really wouldn't have time for this in the near future. Have you tried installing those plugins yourself?
Sorry, but I'm busy too.
