WFM 2002102608 / Win98 Possibly Linux only.
Created attachment 104863 [details] Web page that crashes I downloaded the full page (w/images) Opera, and tried viewing it locally with mozilla, and was successful (no crash). I've tested this with 1.2a and 1.1
Interesting note: viewing the attachment doesn't crash mozilla, but following the URL does. Perhaps one of the components using a "local" URL make mozilla crash? Additionally the HTML is pretty b0rken. :-(
wfm using Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020918 although after two minutes the status bar down below says it is still transferring data from the site but nothing else is loading. It looks the same as the attachment. I also run redhat 7.1 w/many updates. flash 5.0 and java 1.3.1_01
I'm using libflashplayer.so 5.0 r47 (15 February 2001, according to the README file) I'll try to upgrade.
Upgraded to version 5.0 r51 (from 9 September 2002, according to the README.) Went then to http://www.flash.com/ where the browser again crashed with the following error: Error: Object "drawingArea" does not have windowed ancestor Using "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2b) Gecko/20021104" IMPORTANT: I'm using the xft experimental builds from http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/nightly/experimental/xft/2002-11-04-08/ (!!) Sorry I forgot to tell.. :-( (maybe experimental builds should have it's own Build Identifier?)
Plugins I'm using: libNPSVG3.so (Adobe SVG Viewer) libjavaplugin_oji.so (Java(TM) Plug-in 1.3.1-b24) libflashplayer.so (Shockwave Flash 5.0 r51)
Have tested a little more with "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2b) Gecko/20021104" (Experimental XFT RPM) and "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.1) Gecko/20020827" (stable RPM.) Neither versions crash if the flash plugins aren't loaded (i.e. rename the .so file to .so.bak) Both versions crash when viewing the URL. This is true with both r47 and r51 of the flash plugin. Hope this helps!
Do you still crash when removing libNPSVG3.so (Adobe SVG Viewer) ? If so, this is dupe of bug 133567. Otherwise, try upgrading to JRE 1.4.1 and Flash 6.0r60.

Removing the Adobe SVG viewer (and enabling flash again) didn't stop the crashing. I've tested with JRE 1.3 and 1.4.1, and none of them made the browser crash less. Where do I get Flash 6.0r60? (I'm running linux, and Macromedia seems only to have released flash 5.0 to the public.) I've noticed there's a beta (<http://radio.weblogs.com/0106797/2002/10/18.html#a313>) but I'm not quite comforable registering for that... How do I create a stack dump? (cf. the "stackwanted" keyword)
Flash 6: http://www.macromedia.com/software/flashplayer/special/beta/ (more than recommended, it fixes at least 3 Linux topcrasher bugs) Stacktrace: either use GDB by starting mozilla with "mozilla --debug" http://www.mozilla.org/unix/debugging-faq.html or download a Talkback-enabled build and send Talkback ID for this crash "mozilla/bin/components/talkback/talkback" http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/nightly/latest
Installed 6.0r60. Flash doesn't crash the browser anymore! :-) I'll see if I can find some time later to give you a stack trace. Thanks for the help! (BTW, this bug should probably not be closed yet, since there's obviously something wrong with how Mozilla handles misbehaving plugins.)
do you run Mozilla on a remote display (see bug 58937) ?
I'm running mozilla on a local display. I coould attach the output of xdpyinfo(1) if that would be useful...
Not sure we can leave this open unless you provide a stack trace. This is then covered somewhere else: bug 156493. Ed, maybe you can enlighten on why this is fixed with Flash 6, otherwise, sorry and I'll remove you from the list.
Whiteboard: [fixed with Flash 6]
I'm not able to reproduce the crash, I got an "Internal Server Error" on the URL. Without a stack trace I wouldn't hazard a guess about the cause or what fixes it in Flash 6. At this point I really wouldn't waste much time on bugs involving the Flash 5 player, the Flash 6 player should generally be much more stable.
Marking WFM as per above comments.
