Recently I upgraded my firefox, and I face this error scenario:
- I can navigate thru pages normally, except if I request the RecentChanges page.
- After the RecentChanges are displayed, all mediawiki navigation are hanging in
any Firefox windows or tabs (nothing happens, just waiting for something to
display ; only mediawiki fails, i can navigate thru other Internet sites) .
- If I exit Firefox, and restart, then I can navigate thru mediawiki again
(without passing in RecentPages, it is ok).
- I don't have this kind of pb with IE 6.0
Thks for your help,
Just to confirm; is this happening on all MediaWiki wikis, or just the one
Yes, as fas as I've tested, it occurs only on that wiki (http://www.arkae.org).
And for that reason, maybe the firefox upgrade is not the cause.
Do you have enhanced recent changes enabled? If so, try disabling it. Does it
If you disable CSS?
I haven't done any technical changes since a long time (4 months ago I think).
It occurs in both cases: logged in or not.
on other actions)
Css is not disabled.
Windows XP), I have the same result for the following scenario:
- restart firefox, clear the local cache
- click on any link from this page: it hangs.
- call other urls starting http://www.arkae.org/wiki/: it hangs also.
On the same Windows XP, from IE 6 it is ok.
On an Unbuntu Linux using Firefox 1.5 it is ok.
I'm not clear on something: when you say it "hangs", you mean it doesn't load,
or it freezes your browser? I was thinking you meant the latter.
Sorry, I've not used a correct word to describe the situation on the browser. It
is not freezed and not in real hang state because I still can use my browser
(for other things than accessing the mediawiki site): open new tabs or windows,
request other sites urls, stop the current request on the current tab.
The fact is that any page requested from the wiki site do not load after the
RecentChanges page have been displayed, it seems being waiting the server to
answer. And there is no timeout, this wait mode can last hours if I don't stop
it or restart the browser.
We'll probably need to hear from the maintainer of the wiki, then.
When you say wiki you mean my "www.arkae.org" ? I'm the maintainer of this wiki,
and I haven't done a single technical modification since a few months. Tomorrow
I will try to test from a few other firefoxs v2 on different PCs. If they all
behave the exact same way, the question will be: how a MW RecentChanges page can
be dependant on Firefox version?
It works fine for me using Firefox, whether or not I visit the recent changes page.
Today is a new day. Even on my laptop and on my PC at work, it works fine now
from firefox V2. I don't understand because my laptop was rebooted twice
yesterday. Maybe a kind of server cache. Anyway I close this bug report.
