Hangs and tab locking Rated 3 out of 5 stars
by Brian H on October 11, 2011 #
I have 0.3.8.6 installed.
I had depended on TabMix for years, but then when FF 5,7, and 8 came along I began having script hangs and forever-looping almost every time I switched tabs. The usual diagnostic that popped up was "Script: chrome://tabmixplus/content/tab/tab.js:561" Sometimes FF just stopped responding, and had to be closed.
FF 8.0 seemed to reduce that quite a bit, though it gradually began coming back -- but tabs now couldn't be dragged or arranged. So I've had to disable TabMix. Very unfortunate. I miss lots of its functions.
If it's fixed, 5 stars.
Update: Installed dev version 0.3.8.7pre.110909a, and the tab locking seems fixed. Don't know if the 561 script errors will recur, will update after a while. Back up to 4 stars ...
Back down to 3 stars.
Ugh. Whatever that was, that was much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, worse. I could barely maneuver to the Disable button to get past looping xml:864 errors.
Back down to zero stars. What a horror show!
Just retried 111011a. Not hanging at the moment. Will report back. 3 stars again.
11/10/12 - Problem much reduced, but still happens occasionally. Most recent script error: Script: chrome://tabmixplus/content/utils.js:341
11/10/13 Is the newest build supposed to be ...12a? It still shows as ..11b
Still getting some 564 errors and (Not Responding) hangs which sometimes clear if I wait for a while. XP Pro, FF 8.0.

try our latest dev-build
I'm not sure if the latest build is a new one ...12a? or not. Will check back when I have spent enough time tabbing to know if the problem recurs.
