Web Antivirus : Firefox hangs on pages with lots of images

Recommended Posts

Hi all !


We are using KAV for Workstations MP3 here, on WinXP Pro SP3 computers.


When the Web Antivirus service is running, browsing on pages with lots of images in FireFox ( hangs : the images start to load, but stops after some time.

For example, in a "google images" search like http://images.google.be/images?gbv=2&n...tart=0&sa=N, the first two rows of images load very fast, not the third one (I just have the placeholder). After 8-10 seconds, the rest of the images are loaded.


I tried to disable script checking but it doesn't help.

I tried with streaming or buffer analysis, but this behaviour happens in both cases.


Disabling HTTP analysis does fix this bug (even if script checker is still enabled).


I also tried the same page in Internet Explorer, and this browser does not have this bug !

I have extensions loaded in Firefox, but none of them are "tweaking" extensions (maybe only adblock).


Any idea ?


Thanks a lot !
