I discovered that if you make a request, using URLLoader or
other request type objects, if the connection fails to connect
browsers react differently. The issue I've run into is with
Firefox, it doesn't seem to have any time out. If it fails to
connect you will never get an onFault, or onComplete response.
Has anyone else seen this? Is my best option to create my own
Timer with a Timeout?
I think using a Timer is the best workaround. Please file
this as a bug in our new public bugbase for Flex at
and mention that it is really a browser/Player problem. The Player
team doesn't currently have a public bugbase.
