Has anyone seen any lockup or hanging problems with Open Source Edition Zimbra 4.5.6 and Firefox 2.0.0.8? I've got some issues here, everything works fine with IE7.
Regards,

Chris

We just released 4.5.9. I would suggest you upgrade :)

We have found and solved the problem where after logging onto the CMP Administrator application, the Firefox browser would hang.
This condition only occurred in a system with >10 domains, > 90 resources and >80 users.
The fix is to increase the Firefox setting:
network.max_persistent-connections-per-server from the default of 2 to 6
>From the Firefox Knowledge base:

If you are not using a proxy and experience problems not being able to download multiple files, you can raise this value. It is, however, considered poor etiquette to make too many connections to a server and may lead to you being banned from that server. Anything above 10 is excessive.

[Network.http.max-persistent-conne - MozillaZine Knowledge Base

ctions-per-server&action=edit&section=5]
You can increase the setting by typing about:config into the location entry box of Firefox. Locate the setting and double click. You will be able to change the value to 6. A restart of the browser does not appear necessary.
