icedtea-web 1.2.3-4.el6_4 freezes firefox in a web page
Last modified: 2013-07-17 01:58:39 EDT
On some sites, Firefox freezes, and no close (using killall firefox yes).
The cpu usage and ram is fine, so, is other problem.
In the terminal is clear that the bug is icedtea-web.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
CentOS 6.4 using Firefox ESR from repos or Firefox 22 or 23 from mozilla.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Enter to https://chat.movistar.com.ar/website/public/login.html
2.Enter a randon name and number, is for test only
3.Press "Enviar" and Firefox freezes
The bug reported by me is closed actually for fix in upstream but the update never landed to el6.4
If i use icedtea-web-1.3.1-1.fc18.i686.rpm works fine.
jiri vanek in 911960 bug, speak about upstream fix, but 1.3 no packaged yet for el6, and the initial bug report about this is since 2013-02-16 19:32:03 EST
Yes. the issue is fixed in upstream, and correct, 1.3 never reached rhel. However rhel 6.5 will have icedtea-web 1.4, which is solving this issue too.
Unluckily the backport of fixws to 1.2 is not possible. Are you ok with 1.4 in 6.5?

Hi jiri vanek,
I'm using 6.4 (CentOS), 6.5 is no released yet in CentOS distro, I'll have to wait to be solved in 6.5 CentOS. Meanwhile using 1.3.x under 6.4 works fine.
Using 1.4-2 fc19 in CentOS 6.4 work fine, using rpm -Uvh --nodeps
