Under csh with system as detailed above, launch mozilla in x terminal by typing "mozilla" 2. 3. Actual Results: "No running window found" error printed to stdout/stderr (I'm using XFree86 4.3.0 on FreeBSD stable 4.8rc BTW) Expected Results: Been quiet Mozilla also silently crashes later during a session though this is probably unrelated. I track FreeBSD stable and portversion indicates that all is up to date. Have recently removed the Xft dependency as before that mozilla wouldn't even launch. (n.b. FreeBSD port indicates that mozilla + Xft is broken)
I see this too (Moz1.3.1 on FreeBSD 5.1), but I don't think this is an error, but rather an informational message. When you start Mozilla having at least one instance of Mozilla already running, the "error" won't show up. Mozilla may be referring to its own windows, when printing "No running window found". James, if you agree we can close this bug marking it as invalid.
Yes, It does appear to be an informational message (on stderr?). I just think it's not particularly helpful - indeed it's confusing until you realise that it is mozilla referring to it's own windows! IMHO mozilla should just launch silently without this message. P.s. the crashes were unrelated as far as I can tell. They seem to have mysteriously disappeared since I upgraded to 1.3.1,2 - I guess this may have been a problem with the previous FreeBSD port.
I just installed a fresh FreeBSD 4.9-RELEASE system, checked out a fresh ports tree and built mozilla. I get this error, and then mozilla shutsdown with no further action or messages... It does it whether I'm running Afterstep, KDE or Gnome.
I ktrace'd mozilla and found that my .mozilla directory was owned by root for some reason. mozilla was silently quitting when it couldn't write to the directory. Changing the ownership fixed the problem, though mozilla should issue an error message rather than silently dying...
Me in roughly the same state FreeBSD 4.8-RELEASE, buliding from ports. I know of someone else with a similar setup and when I copy over the binaries, it does work. Though I havent been able to put my finger on the bug, it exists with both mozilla and firefox (In reply to comment #3) > I just installed a fresh FreeBSD 4.9-RELEASE system, checked out a fresh ports > tree and built mozilla.
