Browser crashes on startup with User-Agent set
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.7) Gecko/20011221 BuildID: 2001122108 If the general.useragent.override is set to say "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows 98; DT)" (because of some stupid incorrectly programmed site, but we don't want to go into that right now), Mozilla crashes on startup or when viewing a Java "enabled" website. I would recommend distinguishing between the externally visible User-Agent and that communicated to plug-ins. Exact error message: INTERNAL ERROR on Browser End: Expected a version > 5! Version = 4 System error?:: No such file or directory Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Add user_pref("general.useragent.override", "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; W indows 98; DT)"); to user.js 2. Install Java plug in. (I used SUN JDK 1.3.1_02, but IBM also crashed) 3. Start the browser / go to a Java-enabled website Actual Results: Immediate browser shutdown with: INTERNAL ERROR on Browser End: Expected a version > 5! Version = 4 System error?:: No such file or directory on the console. Expected Results: Gracefully informed the user that an error occured with the Java plugin, respectively omitted a slightly more helpful error message.
