Re: ABE locks up Fx2 for the duration of dns query

f we don't want to debug it that's one thing but to simply dismiss it and say its a conflict, that's just tacky. Here's something you can do to debug it. Configure a bogus DNS server that will swallow queries with 0 response (neither UDP nor ICMP), this (74.125.67.100) google ip works for this purp...

Re: Fx2 post 1.9.5 iframe regression

Now that I understand this problem, it can be reproduced with any iframe by blocking it in hosts, for example betanews.com, add 127.0.0.1 adserver.adtechus.com to hosts and ABE will block it resulting in the offline mode error. And one other thing, since the culprit is ABE blocking, you can turn off...

Re: Fx2 post 1.9.5 iframe regression

I'm sorry, I can't reproduce it, nor could therube , so I don't how to be of any assistance. Strongly suspect another extension. I found the missing ingredient, I have adultfriendfinder.com in my hosts file mapped to 127.0.0.1: 127.0.0.1 adultfriendfinder.com www.adultfriendfinder.com and the defau...

Understood, I'll probably turn off ABE in Fx2, so it's somewhat moot, but do you want future ABE + 1.8.1 bug reports, like this, for instance?

Could you explain that in terms that I might be able to understand?


firefox waits for the DNS lookup to complete and does not process user input while it's waiting

Re: Fx2 post 1.9.5 iframe regression

I still can't get the ad, because adultfriendfinder is in my hosts file numerous times the idea is not to get the ad, I'm blocking it too with hosts and noscript untrusted, but to see the offline mode error, can you try the instruction from the first post, on a new Fx2 profile ideally: ⋅ ...

ABE locks up Fx2 for the duration of dns query

ABE seemingly causes Fx2 to perform dns queries synchronously on the ui thread, so a long running and failing query locks up the ui.

Re: Fx2 post 1.9.5 iframe regression

In other words, among the elements you listed, only <script> and <embed> are reasonably sincere, and yet for <embed> you may need to sniff if the user allows Java and forbids Flash, for instance. Very clear explanation, thank you. ___________________________ It's not a big deal, and I'll drop it, b...

Re: 1.9.6.2 and .6.5 causing "Offline" error message

With regard to your conversation with al_9x , do I understand that NS 1.9.5 on Fx 2.0.0.20 *will* perform all NS-blocking with 100% safety and effectiveness? My interpretation of Girogios reply (look at last paragraph) is is that post 1.9.5 changes that introduced the gecko 1.8.1 bugs were exclusiv...

Can you check latest development build 1.9.6.96? Both are fixed. I saw a new icon overlay in this build, a little plus in the bottom right corner: http://img36.imageshack.us/img36/2434/59763377.png , what does it mean? to see it (Fx2): 1) go to http://www.betanews.com/ 2) mark adtechus.com as untru...

Re: Fx2 post 1.9.5 iframe regression

Just want to make sure I understood, you adjusted NS to the latest 1.8 gecko used by Seamonkey, presumably, which broke Fx2.0.0.20 which uses an older 1.8 gecko? Is that right? Yes, it's correct. The adjustment was made for Gecko 1.8.1.x, and therefore affects both Fx 2.0.x and SM 1.1.x. I am still...
