Using mozilla 2002081908 on win98se on compaq-armada1750 laptop, with CIM (Compaq Intelligent Manageability) reproducable: very difficult to reproduce 1. i opened, because i wanted to have a look, why we have bad weather http://www.ghcc.msfc.nasa.gov/GOES/globalwv.html (Global Composite Weather Satellite Water Vapor Pictures from NASA GHCC) this site uses java 2. the while the applet was loading, we had a power-shortcut caused by lightning in the house - CIM-Warning appeared 3. a second later, mozilla crashed without talkback 4. system crashed with bluescreen note: this configuration is not really frequent and now a little bit old :-), so this bug maybe forgotten, isn't it?
about half a year ago, quite the same situation (without mozilla running) didn't cause any crash; the system continued working (not a CIM-bug, but maybe a interference in memory-usage? CIM is running 16bit from DOS at startup in autoexec.bat)
Damir, this is going to be difficult for anyone else to test or confirm, and it is probably not a problem with the browser, but with a bad memory reference in CIM overwriting something important. Here are some steps you can use to isolate the bug: * Run the java virtual machine without mozilla, and cut the power so that the CIM warning appears... * Run the browser without a java page, and test CIM... NOTE: these steps could corrupt your system... so if you are not that concerned about it, please mark this bug INVALID, because it probably is not a mozilla bug. Thank you!
Damir, are you experiencing this crash with a new build of Mozilla?
Resolving due to lack of response from reporter. Please reopen this bug if the problem appears in a new build of Mozilla.
