i'm using firefox 3.0.5, with fastdial 2.2b on winxp, 2.66ghz cpu, 512mb ram, with nvidia geforce 7100gs.
there's a very serius bug with fd. i've recreated it so many times that i can confidently say it's very serius.
by default fastdial captures a small thumbnail of the website added to any block. when a block is refreshed it takes a while for fastdial to capture the thumbnail. in the meantime, if any other block is right-clicked and any of the popup option is selected, fastdial totally hangs the system. firefox, startmenu, taskbar, system tray, the whole os itself. in one instance, i waited for about one half hour but the system remained hung, with absolutely no response, whatsoever, from keyboard or mouse. not even the taskmanager works. not even the best anticrash software - antifreeze! and this horrible bug not only exists in this beta version, but in all the previus versions too.
the image i've captured could only be done with a cam because of obvius reasons as above. so here's the link. sorry it's only 320x240 as my cell cam is capable only that much. but the bug is recognizable and anyone can recreate it with the steps i've pointed out above.
i'd request telega to rectify this soon before i switch my loyalty. i'm talking about speed dial. not only is it free of any bugs but also loads way faster than fast dial. the only thing speed dial doesn't have is drag'n drop, which telega wrongly claimed as 'faster drag and drop' in 2.22b. in my system, even if i use only fast dial as the addon, it still manages a huge 6sec for a drag'n drop to the adjacent block.
in anticipation of a speedy rectification, thanx in advance to telega.
