Mozilla 0.9.9 crashes upon startup when launched from a URL link from my mailer program. This is new behaviour introduced in Mozilla 0.9.9, earlier (0.9.8 and <) versions did not display this behaviour. it triggers the talkback agent (I submitted a report through there as well) and gives an error box about the attempt to read a specific address which failed. The error is reproducable.
If you are crashing in Mozilla the best thing you can do to help the developers fix your bug is to attach a stacktrace. If you're not building yourself you are not out of luck. Mozilla releases nightly and milestone builds with Full Circle's Talkback (you can get latest build on: http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/nightly/latest/) Talkback should catch most crashes and offer to send in a crash report. Developers can retrieve that crash report and attach it to your bug report if you provide either the Incident ID (you can get it by running the talkback program from /components/talkback/). Thanks for your help in testing Mozilla and reporting bugs.
Reporter, please attach stacktrace or Talkback ID, otherwise we'll have to mark this bug INVALID. James
no response from reporter for a couple of months - actually, his email address appears to be dead :( resolving INVALID per previous comment.
