Crash if I try to select a large amount of (quoted) text using the keyboard
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-GB; rv:1.3b) Gecko/20030211 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-GB; rv:1.3b) Gecko/20030211 I have a message with a 134K text file attached, so it is automatically displayed inline. I hit Reply & the Compose window appears with the entire text file quoted inline and the cursor ready below all this text. I want to delete most of the quoted text so I hold down shift & keep hitting pgup to select a large portion of the text. After I have hit pgup the 14th time, Mozilla crashes. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Send yourself a message with a large (>130K) text file attached. 2. Ensure that your MailNews settings will automatically quote the contents of this text file inline when you reply & place the cursor below the quoted text. 3. Select the message & hit Reply. 4. Hold down shift & keep hitting pgup, trying to select all but the 1st paragraph of the quoted text. Actual Results: After hitting pgup several (in my case, 14) times, Mozilla should crash. Expected Results: Mozilla should let me select as much text as I want.
Can you please add a Talkback ID from that crash ?
There is no talkback build available for Mozilla 1.3b on Redhat 8.0 so I cannot do this :-(
worksforme with linux trunk 20030226. are you using an XFT/gtk2 RPM?
ok, can you attach a stacktrace for the crash from gdb?
No, I cannot because I do not know how to do this. I tried: `gdb mozilla` but gdb said that it was not a binary. I also tried `gdb /usr/lib/mozilla-1.3b/mozilla-bin` but it complained that it couldn't find libmozjs.so & refused to run. Any suggestions?
% mozilla & [mozilla starts up] % gdb _pid_of_mozilla_ (gdb) b exit (gdb) b abort (gdb) cont [make mozilla crash] (gdb) bt
BTW, when invoking gdb, it is vital to specify the location ofthe binary as well, not just the pid.
Can you try to get that stack trace while running the browser with the --sync flag? That might give a better location for the actual crash.
I'm getting a crash or wild behaviour from Mozilla Mail when I try to hit return in the middle of quoted text (to start a fresh line for my reply to that text). This has only happened since I downloaded 1.8a2. 1.8a was fine. (WinXP, Mozilla build ID: 2004052407)
the crash has been fixed in today's build - now it just doesn't insert a new blank line :-(
