Description Markus Passerschröer 2007-01-11 10:49:59 UTC
Since I upgraded to stable Firefox 2.0, post requests are really slow. They sometimes take up to ten seconds (not always, but in about 80-90% of the cases). I deleted the ~/.mozilla folder, I also created a new user and tried it there - still the same behaviour. Downgraded to 1.5 and the problem was gone. Doesn't matter which server I send the request to. It seems to be worse with multiple input fields in a form.

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
Open a form with multiple input fields that transfers the data by a post request and submit the form.

Try w/ www-client/mozilla-firefox-bin- and report back. Thanks.

It's working fine now, thanks! I'll keep the bin version.
