Browser crashing during droplet turn off and/or snapshot taking

Posted May 21, 2020 519 views

Over the past few days I have been resizing , taking snapshot and downing my droplet and my browser tab (firefox) has crashed. My droplet seems intact but perhaps something to look at for the dashboard developers?

It was just one firefox tab and it was whilst unattended. It was disturbing since I hadn’t observed the snapshot, restart or disk resize actually finish but afaics there is no problem with the droplet itself. I refreshed the tab before thinking about the console but if it happens again I will try to remember.

Hi there @patbell101,

I tried to recreate the problem at my end as well but I was not able to, I tried to power off and on the Droplet, resize it, take a snapshot and delete it all multiple times but it was working as expected.

Would you mind sharing some more information, like did this happened once for you or does it occur often? Also were you able to see if there are any errors in your web console? And was it only this one tab which crashed or did the whole browser completely crash?

I will forward your feedback to the team.
