Re: Firefox 4 and Filerview Volumes checkbox

It will not be patched until version 7.  It gets fixed with html5.parse.enable disabled.

Actually, that bug doesn't strictly say that it will be fixed in FF7... just that, should an approved patch land in the near future, it will be eligible to be in FF7. Given Mozilla's new release schedule for Firefox (quarterly), I would think a patch would need to be approved pretty soon or it wouldn't make it in time. Based on this (https://wiki.mozilla.org/Releases), I would say a patch has until the 5th to get landed in time for FF7. I don't know if such a patch could be put into an Aurora or beta fix, or if it would be considered too disruptive.

The workaround of setting 'html5.parser.enable' to false is a fairly big change- you're basically trading Firefox 4's renderer out for Firefox 3.6's. In this case it's a good trade, but it could break things that were fixed by upgrading to FF4 in the first place. This is the kind of workaround that works fine now but might cause a totally unrelated problem in 6 months, because you've tweaked a more or less hidden, easily forgettable setting. You might run into a bug somewhere that most people can't reproduce. If you remember this tweak, no problem... if you've forgotten all about it, you might pull your hair out trying to figure out why your Firefox acts differently than someone else's.

If you're just an occasional NetApp admin, it might be better to change it when you need to use FilerView, and change it back after so as to not create a bizarre hard-to-trace problem down the road.

As for System Manager 2.0, I'd be interested in trying it, but for this note (emphasis mine):

Note: The Public Beta program is open to all existing NetApp customers. The Beta version of NetApp System Manager 2.0 software has to be installed only on non-production environments. Beta has a limited support on NetApp communities only.

That almost sounds like not only is it not yet recommended for production use, but that you are actually forbidden from using it in production (maybe by licensing terms or other contractual obligations).

Re: Firefox 4 and Filerview Volumes checkbox

Hi,

The product is in beta at this stage. So we’re encouraging customers to try it out on their test environments and become familiarized with SM 2.0. The official release is in the August time frame.

I can confirm that this is a bug in Firefox, and is fixed in the "Nightly" builds as of 7/23 and beyond. This should make it into the next major Aurora release on 8/16, and into Firefox Beta on 9/27. It should be in the "Release" version of Firefox on or around 11/08, which will be Firefox 8.

I'm trying to get it bumped up a release or two, but at this point I wouldn't bank on that. I can say that I use Aurora as my regular daily browser and don't have any trouble with it, apart from some add-ons that aren't compatible yet. When 8/16 rolls around, that's probably worth considering... you can install it side-by-side with the release version.

You can get the nightly build here (http://nightly.mozilla.org/) if you're interested. These auto-update just like normal Firefox does.

You can get Aurora and Beta here (http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/channel/), although as mentioned above these don't have the fix yet. This would be something to try in a few weeks if you're not comfortable running a nightly build.

Re: Firefox 4 and Filerview Volumes checkbox

I just noticed that I forgot the 3 reproduce step, after clicking the file view icon, you can from here click on volumes, shares, etc.Firefox hangs when you attempt go into the detail of a configuration, e.g. ->  NFS -> Manage -> click on an export to manage.
