Description

16 years ago
Running builds from the latest nightly that I made, I found that Mozilla
segfaults if it needs to create the user's profiles directory ($HOME/.mozilla).

It creates $HOME/.mozilla, and at least *part* of $HOME/.mozilla/appreg, then it
dies.  Nothing is ever output in dialog box form, STDOUT/STDERR form, or any
other form.

The offending bit of truss output is:

I have the truss saved and can always post more if needed.  FYI: this is Solaris
8 07/01 with Forte Developer 6.2.

I get bad behavior when trying create ~/.mozilla as well (though not a crash)
with a local build Sparc Solaris cvs build from 20011226.  In my case after
removing~/.mozilla and restarting,  I click to convert my netscape 4.x profile. 
After this mozilla never opens up a browser window, even after 10 minutes of
waiting.  The profile conversion seems to be successful, since mozilla starts up
normally another version of mozilla is started while the first instance is still
running (or after its been quit).

This problem seems to be specific to profile conversion, since if after removing
~/.mozilla I choose Manage Profiles|Create Profile, a new blank profile is
created, and mozilla starts up normally.

Hmm, now that I look for duplicates, I see bug 112195, which seems to be a
duplicate of the behavior that I see, and like me has no core dump. 

So since I can't confirm a core dump, I'm leaving this unconfirmed.

I can confirm this in Redhat 7.2.  Seems to only happen with the RPM.  If I
install in /usr/local/mozilla, all works fine.  So I suspect it's a library thing.

Can anybody repro this with current builds? It WFM.

Comment 5

at one stage, mozilla was creating a .mozilla and a .mozill directory (a week
ago or so?) I'l test to see if it still does that.
