[3395][Firefox] Private message popup = cancel = blank page
« on: February 16, 2009, 02:58:53 AM »
Hey all,

I couldnt find a bug report about this with search so sorry if this is a duplicate.

I have issues lately with SMF RC1 and private messages.
When I get the notification when I enter the site it, like you know, asks if you want to view the pm in a new window or not. When I click cancel (so I dont want to view the PM at that time) I get a blank page and I have to refresh. I dont seem to have the issue on 1.1.8.

Hey Liroy.
I can't replicate this on RC1 in IE7/8 nor Firefox 3.

What browser are you using?
Any extra popup blockers and stuff?

That could be.
I dont have XP running anywhere, but I could try it again on Windows 7.
Or someone else must be willing to test this out :P

It will be weird if this is causing the issue though.

This appears to be an issue in Firefox 3.0.6.

I get this as well, but only since upgraded to Firefox 3.0.6. I haven't tried to download a nightly yet to see if they fixed this. I haven't even gone over their changelog to see what was changed that might of caused this.

We are also experiencing this issue on our forum.

FF 3.0.7
SMF RC1 also tested on beta 4 same problem. No problems when tested on SMF 1.1.7

Edit - Just tested it on SMF default theme and it still does the same RC1

I get this as well, but only since upgraded to Firefox 3.0.6. I haven't tried to download a nightly yet to see if they fixed this. I haven't even gone over their changelog to see what was changed that might of caused this.

It is a problem with Firefox 3.0.6 and 3.0.7; but I don't think the problem is in Firefox.  I think the problem is in the new SMF version.  When we upgraded the forum, the problem began.  When I upgraded my Firefox, the problem continued.

Not only do I get a blank page if I choose to cancel  PM's; but I if I choose to load the PM's, my browser begins to slow down.  The longer I stay on an SMF forum, the slower my browser gets to the point where it takes minutes instead of seconds to load a page.  I can open another non-SMF forum in another window and I have no slow down.  The only cure for the slowdown is to exit the SMF forum and close that window.  When I reopen the SMF forum all is well unless I choose to open a PM in another window - then the slow down begins all over again and progressively gets worse.

I disabled all Firefox addons and  had no effect.  I ran Firebug and Yslow (Firefox addons) and found a problem in one line of code that seems to show up consistently.  Not beiing a programmer, the Yslow report does not mean much to me except that there is a problem.

I had no problem until we upgraded our forum to the new SMF version.  I have no problem on any other forum or any other site.  My uneducated guess is that the new SMF version uses an IE protocol that is not compatible with Firefox and the version was not tested thoroughly with Firefox.  I can live with having to refresh if I choose to cancel PM's.  It is no big deal.  But I cannot live with the horrendous slowdown if I choose to open a PM in a new window.  The problem appears to be with the PM module and Firefox.

Just now, I received to PM's and I clicked cancel.  All worked perfectly.  Next PM notification, I will click on load in a new window and see if I still get a slowdown.
