Page does not stop loading in firefox


Some of the government web sites I've been going to lately never ever stop loading. As a result I am unable to print the page. Clicking the stop button does not stop the loading. I tried IE and it does not have this problem. Obviously the site was designed for IE only. I'd really rather use firefox because of the all the extensions I use daily. Is there a way to force a page to stop loading in firefox. I just browsed all the extensions (38 pages of them) and did not see anything.

This is from my county's property appraisor pages. Serveral other government property appraisors use this same software and that have the same results on firefox under linux or windows. The link appears to be trucated but it will actually work when you click on it.

i can see what you mean now... i tried going into print preview while the page was still loading and i got the error telling me to wait until the page finishes loading... hitting the stop button wouldn't stop the page from loading... the only difference is that for me the page does eventually finish loading on it's own after a few seconds...

BTW, i am using firefox 1.0.3 on slackware 10.1...

Hmmmm, Well thanks for trying. I've tried my RedHat WS 3 box at work using Mozilla 1.4.3 and it has the same problem. I've also tried firefox 1.0.3 on XP. The only one I've seen that works is IE on windows. I can always use a screenshot to get what I want for a workaround. I have not tried anything outside of Fedora or RedHat.

I think that would be a good idea for an extension. Make a button called "StopRightNow!" I'm sure there are other pages out there that do this. Also another nice feature would be a something that flips through all the tabs like a slideshow over and over. I could use something like this for monitoring things on another screen. Does anybody know where to submit these ideas?

seems to me that the stop button SHOULD work when we hit it, no matter what... maybe you should try submitting this stop button issue as a bug report... it sucks that a page won't stop loading even after we hit stop... hehe...
