Description

16 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i586; en-US; rv:1.1) Gecko/20020830
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i586; en-US; rv:1.1) Gecko/20020830

When error pages (see bug 28586) are enabled and I middle click (set to open the
link in a tab in the background) the "Try again" link on the error page, Mozilla
crashes with the following messages on the console:

INTERNAL ERROR on Browser End: Expected a version > 5! Version = 0

System error?:: No such file or directory



Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.configure tab browsing, middle-click, open links in background (may not be
necessary but that's what I use), activate error pages pref
2.enter http://www.sjdfsjkfjasbdajshb.org  in address bar
3.on error page middle-click "Try again"

Actual Results:  
Zap!

Expected Results:  
Same error page loaded in background in a new tab.
You changed Mozilla UA string and you use Java
The error is from Java : Expected a version.... because Java gets also the wrong
UA and the calls exit().
Since Mozilla runs in the same process it crashes

From the error, Java is guilty. There're similar Java issues (where Java is
totally unrelated) with mail attachments without extension, can't find the bug
for now.
I also have various issues involving Java with this on both Linux & Windows.

This is not a duplicate of bug 83376. I have Java disabled all the time (the
plugin is present, though) and I can start Mozilla just fine. There is no reason
why Java should suddendly get activated by clicking a link. But maybe this is a
separate bug (looks like a bad security issue to me). 
Anyway, if I change the user agent string back to normal, the bug persists, but
the message on the console changes to:

INTERNAL ERROR on Browser End: [0] Initialize. No docbase?
System error?:: Resource temporarily unavailable

Removing the Java plugin fixes the problem, although I see no good reason why
,because as I've said, I have Java disabled all the time (and JavaScript, too, btw).

Come on guys. I know you want to get the bug count down, but marking as
duplicate without verification is not a solution. This bug still exists in
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i586; en-US; rv:1.3a) Gecko/20021117 
so it is obviously not a duplicate of bug 157102 which according to its Bugzilla
page has been fixed 3 months ago (before I even reported this bug here). I'm
reopening this bug (again).

Then we should reopen bug 157102, it's exactly the same report. Or comment
within bug 157004.

How is this the same report? The reported error message for bug 157102 is (see
comment #4 there)

INTERNAL ERROR on Browser End: Exec of "java_vm" failed: 2<
System error?:: No such file or directory
INTERNAL ERROR on Browser End: Could not read ack from browser
System error?:: Resource temporarily unavailable

Why is this the same as the "no docbase" error message for this bug here which
you can see in comment #3?

More observations on this bug: Before the crash, there are several seconds of
intense activity. On my K6-2/500 this is more than enough time to launch a
script that SIGSTOPs Mozilla. After that, it is easy to attach a debugger to
Mozilla. Unfortunately my build does not have debug information so all I could
get from gdb was "Program received signal SIG32, Real-time event 32." I'll see
if I get around to building a Mozilla with debug info so that I can provide a
stack trace. The key probably lies in finding out why on earth Mozilla wants to
launch the java_vm (I even have java disabled; not that it would make sense to
launch java when middle-clicking Try again in the first place).

Is there a Talkback ID for this crash?

Comment 13

Andrew, no, because the crash is happening within Java plug-in.
Is this still an issue with recent builds ?

this is a duplicate, and this bug was kept alive way way way way too long because the reporter did not trust our triage team.

If a respected project contributor has marked a bug as INVALID, then it is invalid. Someone filing another duplicate of it does not change this. Unless you have further important evidence, do not post a comment arguing that an INVALID or WONTFIX bug should be reopened. 

The same rule applies to the DUPLICATE resolution.
