It's going to take 1.5 hours to download a build :-( before I do that I need to know which one is the right one. ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/nightly/latest/ has mozilla-mac-MachO.dmg.gz but the alternative is http://www.mozilla.org/releases/ which would be "Mac OS X" which should I use?
Get the build from <ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/nightly/latest/>. That will be a "nightly" build you can use for testing this bug.
Tom, try testing using a new Mozilla user profile.
I switched to my mozilla testing profile (which contains just about nothing set) and it worked! PLEASE HELP ME NOW! I've been abandoned at this stage before! I haven't a CLUE as to how to alter my main profile to fix such an obsucre thing and I DO NOT WANT TO ABANDON my main profile because I have it set just right. Even if switching profiles solves it, it is *still* a bug - another user would just give up on mozilla at that point. The dictionary problem was still there. PLEASE: should I report it as a separate bug or is there a mechanism to do that? Thanks!
Tom, did you ever hand-edit your prefs.js file or add custom preferences using a user.js file?
yes, see bug 183330. That helped. HOWEVER it probably is not the main source, as this bug came up more recently I think.
here is the error I get from the js console (btw I have had this forever, I always assumed it was Amazon screwing up) Error: uncaught exception: Permission denied to set property HTMLImageElement.src
I switched profiles and it now works. Now can someone tell me what is wrong with my profile?
Tom: WFM using Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.6b) Gecko/20031208, using Mac OSX 10.2.8. I tested this using an existing profile that I have had for some time. I am going to close out this bug as WFM. If you still see issues regarding profiles, that can be filed as a separate bug. Thanks.
