wfm with win2k build 20021106.. and flash 6.0 r47
Crash confirmed 2002110808/Win98, talkback ID TB13730824K
WFM on winXP with trunk build from 20021108 and Shockwave Flash 6.0 r47
Do you also crash with Flash 6.0r60 ? http://www.macromedia.com/software/flashplayer/special/beta/
I cannot reproduce the problem using: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.3a) Gecko/20021120 File name: NPSWF32.dll Shockwave Flash 6.0 r61
yes, if the user uses the more current version it works fine.
I always can reproduce this bug on Linux 2002112305, even with Flash 6.0 r61. All the previous versions did also crash. Should the bug be reopened?
Daniel, does http://poppy.macromedia.com/flashplayer/version/ mention Flash 5 or 6 ?
It says LNX 6,0,61,0 Release Player The same as about:plugins, Shockwave Flash 6.0 r61 Also some people could crash the page with other versions
Daniel, can you post Talkback ID for this crash w/ Flash 6 ?
As I use nightly build on Linux, it doesn't have Talkback. I installed 1.2 instead, but it seems it has some problems (bug 182550); anyway I start "Netscape Feedback Agent", but it doesn't seem to catch the browser crash. I've never used it before, and I don't find any "Talkback howto"... :-( I'll continue trying. Sorry for the inconveniences...
daniel ,do u have the flashplayer.xpt file in ur plugins folder? Thx ! Btw, this wfm just fine with 1126 trunk on XP.
Yes, I missed that file (I thought only the .so was needed), and now the problem is gone! :-) Thanks to everyone. But, why is that file so important? I hope it's not a Mozilla bug. Should I file another bug? (something like "Flash eventually crashes if there's not flashplayer.xpt"). This one gets WFM'ed.
