I recently ran very low on display connections on my Solaris box and Mozilla
crashed continually. Having closed a lot of applications down I am back to the
normal, stable, Mozilla.

By crash I meen the display won't refresh, and basically you get a green tinted
version of the normal Mozilla screen. Switching between the browser and
mail/news doesn't redraw.

I don't know about the workings of GTK+, but I am guessing you get an error if
you can't open a display connection. Perhaps something a little less distructive
than hanging (or at least printing out an error message) would be appropriate!

This is erroneous. Without increasing the total number of open windows I had a
stream of crashes this afternoon. I logged off my machine, logged back on, and
had Mozilla running quite happily for half an hour before going home.

I am missing a few patches, which may be causing problems. Short of installing
Netscape 6 and seeing what it finds is missing, is there an easy way of finding
out which patches are installed out of those needed. I am very pressed for time
at the moment unfortunately, and I don’t have root.
