libevent2 version 1.4.12-1pclos2010
tor version
vidalia 0.2.9-1pclos2010
privoxy 3.0.12-1pclos2010
firefox 3.6.13-1pclos2010
torbutton 1.2.-1pclos20105
xmarks 3.8.7

PCLinuxOS 2010.12 KDE version, upgrades all up-to-date

Dell Inspiron 6400 notebook
Intel Mobile 945GM/GMS, 943/940GML Express Intefrated Graphics Controller

I start TOR via vidalia, start Firefox, click the TOR button to enable TOR in Firefox, disable java script, then
access http://b4yrk2nkydqfpzqm.onion/nn/topic/6395+full/ then click on the thumbnail image at
http://b4yrk2nkydqfpzqm.onion/nn/thumb/129260142258s.jpg to download/view it full sized.

Around 2/3 to 3/4 of the way through downloading the image the colors on my screen rapidly go all pale like pastel shades or that the white balance is getting higher and higher then I just get a
black screen with a non-blinking cursor in the upper-left corner. I have to power-cycle my computer to recover.

No one else in the imageboard has reported problems with this picture.

I enabled debug logging and will attempt attaching the logfile.

Unable to add attachment as it's 6.2 megs. Even RARed it's 271KB, just over the file size limit for attachments. ZIP and GZIP both make an over 400KB archived file. If you need it tell me and I'll make it available to you somehow.

Why do you think this is a Tor bug?

comment:4 Changed 9 years ago by cypherpunks

FYI, mentioned resource mostly about illegal content.

Resolution: invalid
Status: newclosed

Replying to cypherpunks:

FYI, mentioned resource mostly about illegal content.

If I thought that file were legal, I would have tested this by downloading the file with wget and Tor in a VM, and then I would have closed the bug report.

Replying to rransom:

On second thought, I see no way that this could possibly be a Tor bug. Closing.
