parseFromString seems to be dying. This is on 0.9.9 trunk builds (I have not tested non-trunk yet). I need this fixed for 0.9.9 for a whiteboard application that uses this.
Ok, doesn't work in regular nightlies either.
Seems to depend on 92377 being fixed. The testcase no longer works after the 3rd.
WFM in both my Mac trunk build and in a Mac 0.9.9 nightly downloaded from ftp.mozilla.org (2002030805). Any messages in the JS console? Try a new profile and/or deleting the component registry and xpti.dat.
Removing the bogus dependency, bug 92377 has already been fixed. It might have caused this but there's no dependency.
OK, after more extensive testing, I figured out this only affects SVG Windows builds. It says "parseFromString is not a fuction". This is very weird. Works fine on Linux SVG builds.
Summary: parseFromString not working → parseFromString not working on SVG Windows Nightlies
I'll close this as INVALID because it gets fixed by deleting component.reg.

No. This is still a bug. Every new build I download, this has to be done. There is something wrong.

Also, this problem started happening immediately after 92377 path was checked in. This is no coincidence either.
I can't reproduce.
The fix to bug 92377 invalidated component.reg. That file simply needs to be deleted and it will be recreated. We will not fix this by coding... (unless we had a situation with duplicate UUIDs, which I doubt). If nightly builds contain invalid component.reg, they should be cleaned by hand. This of course does not need to be done for clobber builds (I assumed all nightly builds were clobber builds). Adding leaf to Cc. Hmm... where do you download SVG enabled builds (if not mozilla.org)? You should inform them to clobber their build once.
There are nightly SVG builds on Mozilla.org. What is a clobber build?
clobber is a term we use in the make process which deletes all the old crap in the tree so that next time you build you start from the beginning. Depend build is a build where you only build stuff that changed since the last build.
Giving to leaf since this looks like it is some kind of packaging/installer/zip/whatever problem.

no idea what an SVG build is, this bug needs to be assigned to whoever is doing those builds.
