session management hangs firefox on mac

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!


I have a somewhat strange problem.  The firefox browser on a mac (tested hangs after the third or fourth call in a session.  This
happens both with cookies enabled and by passing the session via links.
It seems that this happens while starting the session, after commenting
session_start() out, firefox behaves just fine.  A recent 2.0 is also
reported to have the same problem.

Under Linux everything works just fine, konqueror (tested: 3.5.3 to
3.5.5) as well as firefox (tested to are okay, and so
is Opera.  I've tested IE 5, 5.5 and 6 under wine.  These browsers work
fine, too.  I don't have a Windows box here, so I can't say anything
about firefox under Windows, but this is not reported as a problem.
Btw, safari browser works like a charm under Mac OS X.

php version is 4.4.0-0.dotdeb.3.

If you like to test yourself: (this is a commercial
site, please don't misunderstand this as spam.  Btw, non german users
should get presented an english version of the site as default.  Does
this work?) shows more info on the system used
