Has anyone tried Google's Chromium? Its only for windows right now, but it's open source. I would try it if i could get ZM working to begin with. I am having shared memory errors.

Recently I tried IE on a customers machine. Worked.

K-Meleon 1.5.1 (the latest) open source, free, gecko, but windows only, appears to work fine. It's fast too!

This bug was marked dupe and the one the it duped is marked fixed. The Firefox 3.1 beta appears to work correctly. It looks like anything with gecko 1.9.0.4 will work.

There have been several that were marked as dups but I have been tracking the bug and yes they believe that they have it sorted. I haven't had a chance to build the latest yet and will likely just wait for the finished package myself.

I've installed FF3.1 Beta 1 and it appears to have fixed the endless streaming problem.

Fortunately it installed parallel to my current FF3.0.3 installation, because many of my plugins didn't load in FF3.1

It looks like release 3.0.4 scheduled for final release on November 12th may also fix this problem. That is from looking at the 3.0.4 release page and the buglist page for 3.0.4

Found this comment on the Mozilla bug report.
------- Comment #78 From Daniel Kabs (hello everybody) 2008-11-06 12:25:15 PST -------

Boris, that's good news. Thanks.

I'm having problems linking those branch numbers to Firefox versions. Does
"fixed on 1.9. branch" mean we will get this fix with the upcoming Firefox
update, i.e. Firefox 3.0.4?

------- Comment #79 From Samuel Sidler (:sps) 2008-11-06 12:46:27 PST -------

This will be fixed in Firefox 3.0.5.

------- Comment #80 From Boris Zbarsky (:bz) (todo: 175+ items) 2008-11-06 13:03:07 PST -------

Daniel, Gecko 1.9.0.x is the basis for Firefox 3.0.x (with the same 'x' in both
places). So 1.9.0.5 (which is where this was fixed) will be used in Firefox
3.0.5.
Apparently I'm not the only one that can't associate bug fixes to Firefox versions. Sorry about that folks.

Firefox 3.0.5 is scheduled for release on December 16th.

Good news. FF 3.0.5 has been released. I just upgraded and it appears to me that FF properly closes the stream when the viewing window is closed.

I confirmed this by monitoring tasks with top. When a stream is viewed a zms process is created. When the viewing window is closed the zms process terminates. Previously when I would close the viewing window the zms process would continue running.
