From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.9+) Gecko/20020417 BuildID: 2002041707 The browser crashes. Kaput. Very annoying. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Goto http://www.netmeister.org/news/usenet/footnode.html 2.From the topline of this page copy and paste dennis ritchie's webpage into the browser and go there 3.hit the back button 4.BOOM! Actual Results: It crashed! Expected Results: To view the page in question.
Not crashing with linux 2002042509 1.0.0 branch. Do you use a special sort of copy and paste? Anything else special? Did talkback fire up?
No, nothing special (I used the mouse entirely). I went to the above URL. I then pasted Dennis Ritchie's page into the url window using only the mouse. Pressed enter (taking me to Dennis Ritchie's page), and then hit back. Crash. Would you like me to get today's a more recent build and try that? If so, please specify build (I presume you'll want me to get the nightly, but just to be safe).
trying a newer build certainly wouldn't hurt. http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/nightly/latest-trunk/ (make sure to get a talkback build) if you have a talkback ID for the crash with 20020417, that would be helpful too.
Don't know what a talkback Id is, BUT, I do have a core file. Several of them actual, and can make one extra special just for you :). I'll hold off trying on a new build, until you let me know about the core file (as when I install the new nightly, I will probably need to delete my current build).
To add to this, I have gdb and would happily run a stack trace for you. Anything more invasive than that, and I'd rather just forward the corefile to you (its about 2 meg).
I am uncomfortable running the talkback builds due to privacy concerns. If we determine that I absolutely need to do that, I will, but I honestly prefer not to. I know its annoying, but that kind of stuff worries me a bit.
if you can get a real stack (as opposed to a bunch of "no symbols" or "???") out of the core file that would at least help to identify what component this should be in. The stack trace is the main thing to get from the talkback info. you have the opportunity to select what you do and don't send in the talkback report...
Blech, you were right gdb is useless (didn't realize you guys were stripping the nightlies). At any rate, good news. With the latest build 2002042610, I cannot reproduce the bug. Sorry about the annoyance, and glad you guys were so helpful and pleasant to deal with. Kudos on the excellent browser btw. Go ahead and mark this one invalid I think, and I'm sorry to have interfered with your Friday night.
