#4549 closed Bug (fixed)

Favicon in trackerlist makes filter popup slow and unresponsive in webui

Reported by: marcus Owned by:
Priority: Normal Milestone: 2.50
Component: Web Client Version: 2.41
Severity: Normal Keywords:


Because the webui needs to pull a lot of favicons when the webui is opened, it can take up to minutes until the box even appears. I have a lot of trackers in the list (more then fit on the screen even) which makes it almost unusable to switch eg. from download to seeding and back. Thus, I'd like you to consider removing the favicon from the dialog box as it does not really serve a purpous. If that would be to much of a problem, I'd like you to consider an option to cache the icons (asyncronously) on the deamon server and serve them from there. For me, that would be a major improvement.

How many torrents do you have, and what browser are you using?

comment:3 Changed 10 years ago by marcus

I have about 150 torrents, mostly seeding and about 600 or so trackers. Using Firefox 7, I have timed the opening of the window with 217 seconds at the worst. Once I remove the "<img>" tag from transmission.js, everything runs smoothly again. I think you'd agree that that's a hard pill to swallow for such a feature.

600 *different* trackers??

comment:5 Changed 10 years ago by jordan

Also, what browser / version are you using?

comment:6 Changed 10 years ago by marcus

As said, I'm using Firefox Version 7

As for the trackers, I have only done a "quick head count" using a bash script so there might be some doubles, but as I said in the bug report the list shown in the filter box does not nearly fit onto my screen with 1200px height and the last tracker I can access through that box starts with "ba" so I guess it might be acurrate. I know this sounds like a lot but I have quite a lot of torrents that have >100 trackers associated with them (although I doubt all of them are actually tracking those torrents).

I believe I encounter the same problem. I have not as many torrents and/or trackers, but I too use Firefox 7 (latest Ubuntu) and the filter box takes its due time to appear. Not minutes, but I'd say arround 10 seconds of time before I can see it and switch views with it. This is really kind of anoying and it would be good if it was fixed.

Cheers, Sergio

I've removed the favicons in r13064.

Thanks for the feedback on this feature. I'm not seeing the slowdowns, so getting real world reports were helpful here.
