Browser woes

May

My default browser is FireFox.

If I execute:

Code:
start ftp://lucky.syr.edu/mat122/stat11t_formulas.pdf
with TCC12, FireFox starts, partially shows the document, then just sits there using 25% PCU (all of one processor).

If I give the same command to CMD it works correctly; FireFox shows the complete ducument and then idles at 0% CPU.
 
FF is a little slow at everything .. I'd blame FF snapin/plugins
What happens if you start it from cmd first, then tcc
could it be cached already?

What happens if you start it in TCC using
this command?

start /pgm "ftp://lucky.syr.edu/mat122/stat11t_formulas.pdf"

If you run Process Explorer, can you
see any difference in the way the processes are started (between cmd and
tcc)?

Interesting, but I don't think it's a TCC issue. What I see is it failing
every other time I execute it, whether from CMD or TCC.

I would suspect either your ftp server or FireFox.

I just saw it work well 10 times in a row from CMD and then fail as described
earlier 5 times in a row from TCC.

Either way, FireFox's startup command is the same:

Code:
"D:\FireFox\firefox.exe"  -requestPending -osint -url
"ftp://lucky.syr.edu/mat122/stat11t_formulas.pdf"

(probably coming from some shell DLL).

I don't think TCC is handling the start correctly (DDE?, ShellExecute?) because
while FireFox is unresponsive, so is TCC (and that's after TCC's prompt has
returned). And that unresponsiveness includes **other** instances of TCC, too
... and does not include other running apps.

As it does here as well

TCC 12.10.52 x64 Windows 7 [Version 6.1.7600]
TCC Build 52 Windows 7 Build 7600

Firefox 3.6.13
Adobe Reader X

Not reproducible here -- it fails 50% of the time in CMD, and it fails 50%
of the time in TCC.

That command is not executed by TCC; it is passed to Windows to handle.

And it is impossible for TCC to be affected by Firefox after TCC has
returned to the prompt -- unless you've got a (substantial) Windows bug.
(Which unfortunately is NOT impossible.)
