Description

19 years ago
I built 10/11's M10 SeaMonkey source code compiled as debug code successfully.
When I ran apprunner, it caused an error. I debugged the file, and stepped back
to the calling function. It was in function void nsFileURL::operator = (const
nsFilePath& inOther), around line 577 or 578 of xpcom/io/nsFileSpec.cpp
original = 0000003bC:/Program Files/Communications/internet/users50/mozProfile

the last output was startpage= www.mozilla.org

The next error of mine tells about setup.

I believe that the string is not formatted correctly.
Setup never worked. Could that be the reason the string isn't formatted
correctly?

[boberb@rpi.edu, although you might receive a response for this build issue,
you're much more likely to receive a useful one --- faster --- by posting on the
appropriate newsgroup, as listed on the Community page. Good luck.]

I am changing this to reflect the OS and putting in a summary and Milestone

Will do that also. Is writing to the newsgroup like writing a bug report?

Comment 4

It depends.

In a bug report, the goal is to report an unknown product defect in a fashion
optimized to enable programmers to fix easily and quickly. It's not really
intended as a place that one goes to for help.

e.g. what I'm saying here is completely inappropriate for the context of a bug
report.

In a newsgroup, (in my opinion) the goal is normally to have whatever relevant
interactions with other people with a similar interest (e.g. building Mozilla) in
a less formal context.

If you're already building the code, I'd strongly encourage you to check out
irc.mozilla.org. Lots of helpful people are there.

Isn't it a bug if it doesn't run? I already compiled it. It is in the binary
version just as if I had downloaded it that way.

Note: I downloaded the M10 binaries and ran apprunner and the same thing
happened. Either there is a problem with the application, or it is having
problems because I used to have M9 on my computer. I tried installing the
registry file included and it didn't work. Maybe that info needs to be entered
into the registry. I'm not sure.

The strange thing is, if there was a problem in the binaries, wouldn't someone
have noticed it by now? Therefore, I think there is a problem with the M10 build
when M9 is already on the system.

It appears this is happening to other people on different OSes. Has anyone tried
the Win32 version? Did it work for them? Maybe this is a real problem happening
to more people than just myself.

I get this error every time.

My build:

I think the errors in both cases may be related because one of the errors were
in a cpp file in the xpcom directory, while the other error was in module
xpcom.dll.

I saw someone else's bug about (mozregistry.dat) and I found the same string
(0000003bC:/Program Files/Communications/internet/users50/mozProfile) as I had
found in the variable original. I deleted the file. Mozilla worked and
created a new profile. Now the file contains: (directory
C:\PROGRAMMING\MOZILLA\SOURCE\MOZILLA\DIST\Users50\Brian). Shouldn't Mozilla
have edited the file when it found an invalid string instead of exiting?

I'm glad that was solved.

Perhaps people should be warned about this.

there is already a bug on this, and it's noted in the release notes. It was an
unfortunate incident when you upgrade from M9 from M10 (it was noted in the
release notes). Marking fixed since it's now working for you.
