Need Flash & Shockwave. Click number 31, 3rd button from the right, titled Clocksphere. Once I click on it, the browser crashes, XP message about 'send error' pops up, and every Mozilla window is closed. There are other Shockwave presentations, but I happened to land on number 31. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to http://surface.yugop.com 2. Bottom menu, click 3rd button from the left, #31: Clocksphere 3. Browser crashes Actual Results: Browser crashed and windows closed Expected Results: Play the Shockwave presentation
Using Mozilla 1.3a
Do you have a Talkback ID from that crash ?
Do you still crash when upgrading to Flash 6 ?
I have Shockwave Flash File name: npswf32.dll Shockwave Flash 5.0 r41 and Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.3a) Gecko/20021118 And it crashes for me as soon as it tries to load surface.yugop.com before even getting a choice to click on the specified button. I have a talkback saved, but it hasn't sent yet for some reason, seems to be having problem talking to the talk back server, I can tell you the TID when it submits finally. I've not tried upgrading to flash 6, but I still wouldn't be expecting it to crash. www.nidecker.com also crashes for me immediately.
Karl Palsson: you are seeing a different crash. This bug is different becuase the reporter crashes only if he clicks a link inside the flash plugin. You see bug 179822 (flash 4/5 problem but flash6 works))
Never mind then :) Thanks for the prompt reply. I just installed flash 6 though anyway, and the reporters original problem works for me now. My old problem is well and truly gone. Cheers, Karl P
Confirmed with build 2002111908 I also noticed a similar bug when you try to open a swf file attached in a mail message. Is it because of the checkin of bug 110729 ?
firstname.lastname@example.org: What do you see ? WHich flash version do you use ? Do you get a crash if you open the URL or if you click on the link inside the flash ? Do you have a talkback ID ?
what do I do to enable Talkbalk in Moz 1.3a? Or is it already enabled?
Do you have : Mozilla/components/talkback.exe ?
tested this and certainly did crash. winXP 2002111808 build (trunk) Shockwave Flash File name: npswf32.dll Shockwave Flash 6.0 r47 Shockwave for Director File name: np32dsw.dll Macromedia Shockwave for Director Netscape plug-in, version 8.5 Talkback ID: 14139297
Beppe: Could this be the same crash as the flash4/5 one ? In this case the shockwave director plugin crashes (and not flash6). The stacks looks near identical. (what is : PluginPing.dll ?)
it's a macromedia file, adding emillard for help on this on. Can you point me to the correct person?
oh yeah, they are pretty much the same stack aren't they -- hmm adding Peter for confirmation on this
I'm pretty sure the cause of this is the same as for bug 179822, turning on MOZ_UNICODE (bug 104934) causes the crash old macromedia's WinProc. I would not mark it as a dup of 179822, because that bug is about crash in old flash5, and there's workaround - upgrade to flash 6. This bug is about to crash in %windir%\system32\Macromrded\Shockware 8\PluginPing.dll, which is part of Macromedia Shockwave for Director Netscape plug-in, version 8.5, I'm not aware if there is new version of Shockwave for Director available.
yes, I added emillard to get exposure from macromedia side
Beppe: I suspect it's the same crash as the flash4/5 one. Can you try to upgrade to flash 6; but leave the shockware as is?
Roy, what Serge is saying is that Flash and Shockwave are two different plugins. This bug is about Shockwave. Both are made by the same company and very likely share some code, so the cause for the crash can be similar, but they are still different plugins. If we find a solution for one, it will likely solve another.
well at least its working on Moz 1.1 btw, how did Moz jump from 1.2b to 1.3a? whatever happened to full 1.2?
Roy: I do have Flash 6 installed. As Andrei, Serge and I explained - Shockwave is an independent plug-in from Macromedia, but we suspect they used the same core code.
taking; but I need help from macromedia. See bug 179822
*** Bug 182201 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Build with the latest patch in 179822 doesn't crash from visiting http://surface.yugop.com/ I think this will get fixed once we check in the fix for 179822.
fix for 179822 is checked into the trunk. Please verify this bug. Thanks
this crash is indeed fixed. I do not crash on 1204 trunk build on Xp. Reporter, pls double check, Thanks !!
