Cannot create profile


(Core Graveyard :: Profile: BackEnd, defect, P3, blocker)

Windows 98


(Not tracked)



(Reporter: PyroGuy83, Assigned: selmer)


Before I run a new mozilla build, I always delete the old build and all files
associated with it (profile, mozregistry.dat, etc) - created a nice little batch
file to delete.
On a build about a week ago I was not able to run a nightly build - the Next
button in the Profile Creator would not work, and a message poped up in the
debug window everytime I clicked next (was not able to advance beyond first
page) saying something like "error file" and "OnNext not linked" or something
like that.  That problem seems to be fixed, but on the Dec 3 build, I cannot
advance beyond the final Profile creator window (by clicking Finish).  I get a
similar error message about something not being linked up - it says:
Error: Can't load: file:///f|/BIN/chrome/profile/content/default/null.xul
That message occurs the first time I click Finish.  After that, the error
message is this:
JavaScript Error: TypeError: contentWindow.GetFields is not a function
URL: chrome://profile/content/createProfileWizard.js
LineNo: 174
That message persists on every subsequent click of Finish.
Severity: major → blocker
Well stated, The December 4 MICROSOFT WINDOWS 98 persists
in this egregious error.
What distance (in metric) is Mountain View from Pasadena? >:+(
Why thank you :-)  Please also take note that I am using
a version of Windows 98 called 98lite - the version which does not have
Internet Explorer installed (or as some people would say, "hides" it).
This problem doesn't occur in M11 though, FYI.  I just hope this is fixed soon
so that I can get back to some real testing.
