Mozilla 1.0rc2 on Japanese Windows 98 once started, causes other applications to generate a protection fault each time a key is pressed or released. The protection fault does not cause the other applications to abort, but each key press is followed by a system error dialog, which has to be dismissed with a mouse (because using keyboard pops up more error dialogs). As a result the whole system except Mozilla becomes unusable, and the only cure is to reboot the computer. The bug is present regardless of the chosen keyboard, changing keyboard to English does not help. This bug was introduced somewhere between 0.9.9 and 1.0rc1. I also remember having problems like this in ancient versions (like M18 etc.). I am using Mozilla 1.0rc2 build id 2002020406, but I could see the same problem in Mozilla 1.0rc1. Mozilla 0.9.9 was working fine. OS is Japanese Windows 98 4.10.1998, with IME 6.00.41.
no problem with non-Japanese win98 systems -> Int
ruixu: can you confirm this? I don't have Win98J. this is terrible.
Reporter: It is not reproducible with the latest mozilla build (1.0rc3) on my JA Windows98 SE, could you please try the latest one on your system? Thanks!
I uninstalled my 0.9.8, installed the snapshot and everything was fine. No more errors. Then I uninstalled the snapshot, installed 1.0rc2, no errors. Downloaded and installed Japanese language pack, still OK. I have no idea what was going on before, but I cannot reproduce the problem anymore. I hope from now on like this will be. Thanx.
marking WFM as per reporter's comment
Mark bug as VERIFIED, please reopen if it is reproducible.
The bug reappeared after suspending and resuming the computer. I am running a laptop (Sony Vaio F16/BP).
Ryjek: could you please let us know what is your build #?
Build ID: 2002051006 This is regular 1.0rc2.
Ryjek: could you please try the latest build and see if it is still reproducible or not? Thanks.
It is reproducible with the latest build 2002052408. To reproduce: 1) Start Mozilla. 2) Suspend computer without exiting Mozilla. 3) Resume computer. Try using keyboard anywhere outside Mozilla - application error message. The error comes from Windows Explorer. Mozilla must be running when the computer is suspended. Otherwise, everything is fine. Maybe it doesn't have anything to do with the OS being Japanese ...
>Maybe it doesn't have anything to do with the OS being Japanese ... symptom doesn't look like OS-Ja specific. ruixu/qa: can you verify on any Win98?
I could not repro this bug with the latest build. Ryjek: could you please try the latest build and see if it is still reproducible or not? and are you using Japanese 106 keyboard or English 101 keyboard to repro this bug? Thanks.
The problem is still reproducible with build 2002070204. Start mozilla, suspend computer, resume - and here it is. Also, I noticed the bug without suspending the laptop. After surfing for about 30 minutes the keyboard became unusable. Since this is a laptop, its keyboard is not full size and it is neither 101 nor 106 keys. However, since it has three extra kanji-handling keys and a function key, I think it is closer to 106 than to 101. I just counted and there are 92 keys in it.
accepting for now and changing severity to 'major'
The problem was identified as a bug in the driver of the laptop's touch pad. Updating the driver removed the errors (in case anyone has a similar problem: http://www.ita.sel.sony.com/support/pc/pcgf150f160/softupdates)
I think both roy and me are off mozilla for more than 2 years. If these bugs are still here now, I think the real stauts is 'won't fix'. If you want to reopen it, please find a new owner for it first.
