Ticket #663 (closed bug: duplicate)
wfs layer hangs firefox when zooming
|Reported by:||tschaub||Owned by:||tschaub|
Though I don't have a live setup to demonstrate it on, I've reproduced the problem that is described by Steve ( http://www.nabble.com/Re%3A--OpenLayers-Users--Work-around-for-bug--541----p9798435.html)
On Windows Firefox, call to rendererRoot.setAttributeNS(null, "viewBox", extentString) is taking forever. After hours of browser crashing, I've determined that it can be resolved by clearing the renderer before setting this attribute.
The following patch moves the already existing renderer.clear call in the WFS layer's moveTo above the moveTo call to the superclass.
I have no idea why this works - or didn't work before. A browser bug I'd say.
