Comment 2 User image sairuh (rarely reading bugmail) 2002-01-15 11:14:13 PST
fwiw, i don't crash accessing prefs using 2002.01.15.08 mozilla bits [linux rh7.2].

Cannot reproduce the bug on my RedHat 7.1 system (using the same build as
originally reported).  Going to look at Tracy's machine.  
Comment 4 User image Samir Gehani 2002-01-15 11:24:17 PST
Downgrading severity due to lack of reproducibility.

i cannot repro with commercial bits on linux, either [2002.01.15.08].

however, i can repro w/moz bits on os x --then again, that was built at
2002.01.15.03. so if it were respun, my guess is that this bug wouldn't be there...

in the modern skin on osx, i get

which is probably why we're crashing and osx can't show the prefs dialog at all.
ideas?
