Using mac build 19990816 on my PPC 8500, OS 8.5 I crash a lot using Messenger, and can't really get steps. I will log a talkback incident each time and put this bug number in the description. After several crashes I'll update this bug with the incident numbers so we can see if the crashes are all in the same area. Steps (at this time, will update when I have more specific reproducible steps) 1. Launch Messenger and use it.
Reassign to esther to develop steps
OK, here are the incidents: 12624061,12623088, 12622587, 12622167, 12621950, 12621601, 12615467, 12613859, 12612214. What they all have in common is closing the 3-pane messenger window after having a Mail Compose or Editor window was opened at least once while the 3-pane window was opened. Mail Message windows include: New Msg, Reply or Forward window in HTML or Plain text. Here is a simple scenario, I will add the stack from the talkback this simple case produces 12624474). 1. Launch Messenger (don't launch apprunner first, messenger only) 2. Select New Msg toolbar button 3. File|Close the New Msg window 4. File|Close the 3-pane window Crash Call Stack: (Signature = 0x619a6198 6aa2893c) 0x619a6198 EditorCore.shlb + 0x1ba40 (0x0ce2f170) EditorCore.shlb + 0x737c (0x0ce1aaac) EditorCore.shlb + 0x1bec8 (0x0ce2f5f8) nsCOMPtr_base::~nsCOMPtr_base() [nsCOMPtr.cpp, line 26] EditorCore.shlb + 0x3ef58 (0x0ce52688) EditorCore.shlb + 0x3f060 (0x0ce52790) XPConnect.shlb + 0x14b64 (0x0d029be4) XPConnect.shlb + 0x1421c (0x0d02929c) XPConnect.shlb + 0x14338 (0x0d0293b8) XPConnect.shlb + 0x18934 (0x0d02d9b4) js_FinalizeObject() [jsobj.c, line 1259] js_GC() [jsgc.c, line 831] js_ForceGC() [jsgc.c, line 610] JS_GC() [jsapi.c, line 1073] DOM_DLL + 0x4ff0 (0x0d7890b0) DOM_DLL + 0xe950 (0x0d792a10) layout.shlb + 0x272dd0 (0x0d3326b0) layout.shlb + 0x272acc (0x0d3323ac) nsWebShell::Destroy() [nsWebShell.cpp, line 1206] nsWebShell::DestroyChildren() [nsWebShell.cpp, line 773] nsWebShell::Destroy() [nsWebShell.cpp, line 1209]
Note: this does not happen on Win98 and Linux, mac only using M9 builds. Also note using the same scenario but selecting Editor or Plain Text editor from the Tasks menu instead of New Msg will crash too. I think this is an Ender problem.
Yep, looks like Ender on the top of the stack. Reassigning to buster.
assigned to kathy, cc simon and joe. Please decide among the 3 of you who has time to look into this one. Very high priority.
(target milestone is M11 or M12 - add to mail beta tracking bug)
