From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.0) Gecko/20020621 BuildID: 2002062110 One of the developers and I just finally spent a couple hours nailing this problem down as far as we can. This is what we know. The problem is not with the page. This can also fairly easily be proven by turning off java support. The applet itself we think is ok. It loads and runs fine on Windows in IE, netscape, and mozilla. However, on linux it crashes the browser. We went through the menu and tried to find if there was a specific menu entry causing the problem. We were able to make it work by deleting a segment of the menus and proceeded to try and add stuff back in to narrow down the problem. Over several iterations though, the problem was always in a different place. We've come to believe that the problem is with the size of the menu file. It seems like if the menu file definition gets over 33k the browser crashes. It also doesn't seem to matter what java implementation I use. It causes it to crash under blackdown, sun's plugin, and IBM's setup. While there could be, and probably is, a problem with the java implementation itself together with this applet the crash behavior is obviously unwanted. While Opera is unable to display the applet, it doesn't crash on load either. It sounds like there's an exception mozilla isn't catching. If we could at least keep the browser from crashing we might be able to get a decent bug report to indicate what's going on with the java implementation. Thanks guys. I look forward to hearing your thoughts on this. If there are any other tests anyone would like me to run to further facilitate research into this problem I'm at your disposal. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Load the page 2. 3. Actual Results: Browser Crashes Expected Results: Not crashed. (Printed when the browser crashes: INTERNAL ERROR on Browser End: Write failed. sendrequest System error?:: Resource temporarily unavailable I also get a plugin trace file which has this at the end: PLUGIN ERROR ************ Java process: unexpected request 732f5265
I tried to upload an strace log from executing this, but I can't seem to get the upload to work. However, it should be easily reproducable from any mozilla/linux browser setup.

Reporter: Could you confirm what versions of JRE you have used and which linux dist and version? Can you try with a later build version?
I'm using the Gentoo distribution, version 1.2 I've confirmed this behaviour with Blackdown's JRE 1.3.3, and with IBM's JRE 1.3.3 and with Sun's JRE 1.3.3 and 1.4.x. I'd be happy to try again with a newer build version. I'll pull a copy down and give it a try sometime yet today.
I just pulled down 1.1Beta (2002072204) and set it up with the plugin from Blackdown JRE 1.3.3 and checked the site. It still crashes with the same error. I can pull down a nightly if you need me to and try that.
Created attachment 95108 [details] strace output from connecting to the site and the resulting crash. Is this bug not reproducable by anyone else? It's reproducable on every machine at my disposal.
Reporter, could you try it with a recent Sun JRE (i.e., JRE1.4.1rc, available at java.sun.com/j2se), and see what happens?
I have indepentantly reproduced this bug with mozilla 1.2b along with j2sdk1.4.1_01 and IBM's jdk. (I just stumbled across this bug report while searching for any similar bugs to the one that was driving me nuts) It works fine under windows using pretty much every browser you can think of.

WFM, Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.3b) Gecko/20030111, Java(TM) Plug-in 1.4.1-rc-b19.
Still WFM, Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4a) Gecko/20030315, java 1.4.1. One of the applets on the page throws an exception and fails to load: java.lang.ClassFormatError: advnewsscroll (Bad magic number) at java.lang.ClassLoader.defineClass0(Native Method) at java.lang.ClassLoader.defineClass(ClassLoader.java:502) at java.security.SecureClassLoader. defineClass(SecureClassLoader.java:123) at sun.applet.AppletClassLoader.findClass(AppletClassLoader.java:148) at sun.plugin.security.PluginClassLoader. findClass(PluginClassLoader.java:168) at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClass(ClassLoader.java:299) [etc] but the menu applet on the left side loads and runs fine. Mark, can you reproduce this with a current copy of mozilla? Travis, do you have a different test case which also demonstrates this problem? The strace log unfortunately isn't very useful. It's just a trace of the "mozilla" shell script launching the "mozilla-bin" executable. A trace of mozilla-bin would be more useful (but much, much larger).
Since over 1 month no answer from the reporter, so closing bug as wfm (as of last comments). If the bug exists in newer builds (1.4 final with sun 1.4.2 jre/jdk) then look for a similar bug or reopen this bug.
