Mozilla 1.0rc1 for MacOSX and Netscape 6.2.2 for MacOSX functioned well with OS version 10.1.3. After upgrading to 10.1.4, neither will run past the splash screen. A previous upgrade from 10.1.2 to 10.1.3 worked well, affecting neither program. A number of users have reproduced the error. I am having some weird problems. I'm running MacOS 10.1.3, 500+MB ram, G4/400MHz,± 5GB free, and I have tried to install and run Mozilla 0.9.9 and Netscape 6.2. I get the same problem with both versions. When i start Mozilla, I get the splash screen you know, now starting mozilla with the dragon, but just when it finishes loading, it crashes. I have even tried the nightly build for 1.0, ie. the MacOS X trunk version. It does the same thing. It did however create a .mozilla directory in my home directory.

the UFS question is interesting but unlikely to pay off given that older os's worked. can you try trashing your mozilla preferences? also please attach the crash report :)
I had had this same problem - an "unexpected quit" after the splash screen had displayed for a time. This was a problem for quite a few weeks for the MachO builds until May 9, 2002 build. Suddenly, and with no comments I've found, the builds started to work and have been working up to yesterdays build (5/31). Now the unexpected quit on the splash screen is back. I've reverted to the 5/28 build because that's one I had ... I'll see about the ones from 5/29 and 5/30. the system I'm running is: iMac 400 MHz w/ 320 Meg RAM and Mac OS X v10.1.4 (Build 5Q125) I do have crash logs to attach to this addition. The single file contains a crash from 5/4/02 and the crash today for the 5/31/02 build. They are rather different ... hope they help the developer(s). they will follow in the next comment. Dale
I don't know what the problem is, but Bugzilla refuses my plain text file with a message saying "it's empty" which if very definitely is not. I'll hold it for submission from elsewhere ... Dale
integral-fellow, only the Mach-O version of Mozilla creates a ".mozilla" directory. Try downloading the traditional CFM build of Mozilla 1.0 RC3 and see if that works. dales, are you also reporting this problem against Mach-O builds and not regular Mozilla for OS X builds?
dales: File submission doesn't work from a mach-o build if that's what you're trying to submit to bugzilla
Is this still a problem for anyone with more recent builds? Anyone tried a new Mozilla user profile? email@example.com, please do attach the crash reports you mentioned. Prefixing Summary with [mach] since it appears this is a problem with FizzillaMach builds, and not FizzillaCFM.
