wfm, linux 2001121715 Reporter please try to verify this problem with a newer talkback enabled build and a fresh profile.
marking WORKSFORME reporter: please reopen this bug if you can still reproduce it using a more recent build.
not seeing this either, Linux 12/18/01 tr build verified wfm
I find that this still occurs for me... the place to try this out is http://www.fileplanet.com/ and find a file that causes you to "wait in line" for a download. Basically a popular and large file. Once the line has accepted your connection, then click on the link to download the file. Mozilla crashes at this point. (This doesn't appear if you don't wait in line, it seems) I have verified this with newer builds and different file downloads, so I'm not sure where the failure is exactly. I'll hazard a guess that it is due to the url that is sent to the server to start downloading.
Reporter, we need a talkback report here! Get yourself a talkback enabled build and report the talkback ID the crash generates. Otherwise we cannot confirm your problem and this will once again get marked as WORKSFORME. Did you try a fresh profile? This might well be profile corruption. Move your .mozilla directory somewhere safe, start mozilla and see if you still crash. Thanks.
ok - done - you are correct. I installed a talkback version for a new user, therefore a new profile entirely and no corruption from any other mozilla stuff that may be already on the system. The files did download correctly after the line-up has finished. Sorry for the goose chase. -M
Reporter, the correct resolution for this would be WORKSFORME, as it was before you reopened the bug. I know I am nitpicking, but I will change the resolution of this bug nevertheless.
... and marking VERIFIED. Rest in peace.
