With the most recent build that I downloaded (w32-talkback, build id: 2002042403), I receive two dialog boxes reporting configuration warnings during the startup of the browser. They both appear immediately after the splash screen appears when attempting to execute mozilla.exe after extracting all the files from the w32-talkback.zip file and overwriting my previous version (which I believe was 20020401xx) The first error reports: An error occurred reading the startup configuration file. Please contact your administrator. line 47: Reference Error: defaultPref is not defined Second error is very similar: An error occurred reading the startup configuration file. Please contact your administrator. line 47: Reference Error: config is not defined To my knowledge, I have not touched my configuration file in a very long time.
Reporter: Can you please try this : Uninstall mozilla, delete all files that are not deleted by the uninstaller in c:\programs\mozilla.org (but save your plugins) and reinstall mozilla
Okay... I didn't reinstall, but I did the following and the warnings stopped: 1. Went into /defaults/pref 2. created a folder called "old" 3. moved the files "config.js" and "initpref.js" into that folder. everything seems okay now... "config.js" had the following information (after a lengthy license block): config("startup.homepage_override_url","chrome://navigator-region/locale/region.properties"); config("autoadmin.append_emailaddr",false); config("autoadmin.failover_to_cached",true); config("browser.chromeURL","chrome://navigator/content/navigator.xul"); "initpref.js" had the following information that I believe was causing the difficulty (there was other information as well: // --- Preference initialization functions --- // // Moved to native functions: // pref -> pref_NativeDefaultPref // defaultPref -> "" // userPref -> pref_NativeUserPref // lockPref -> pref_NativeLockPref // unlockPref -> pref_NativeUnlockPref // getPref -> pref_NativeGetPref // config -> pref_NativeDefaultPref (?) // stubs for compatibility var default_pref = defaultPref; var userPref = user_pref;
wfm -> corrupted prefs file
