User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.3.1) Gecko/20030425 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.3.1) Gecko/20030425 When running Mozilla (tested with 1.3.1 or 0.94) over a VNC "link" standard html-code works fine too -- only opening a site with needs the flash-lib ("plugin") Mozilla crashes ungracefully. The plugin works fine when evoked locally (i.e. direct X-access and no VNC) Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3. Actual Results: s.a.
Which Flash Plugin do you use (see help/about:plugins) ?
used Plugin: Macromedia Flash Player 6 for Linux (Shockwave Flash 6.0 r79)
can you post Talkback ID for this crash "mozilla/bin/components/talkback/talkback" or post a stacktrace via GDB (given you built a debug build) ?
I forced 2 crashes (to different target-URLs !) talkback IDs TB20919505W and TB20919461H
This is either invalid or Tech evangelism (The flash player itself crashed)
I forgot to admit that the target machine is running two proc (SMP) ;-) Is possible that the flashplayer or mozilla has thread-synchronisation problems ??? (and the lesser load of VNC (compared to a real Xserver) shows this this way)
Meant to say: Macromedia Flash Player 5 Netscape Plug-in for Linux 9 September 2002
craig, do you have the issue with Flash 6 ? Flash 5 is known to crash over VNC afaik.
For what is worth, I can confirm the bug happens on: Mozilla 1.4a Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4a) Gecko/20030401 File name: libflashplayer.so Shockwave Flash 6.0 r79 It is very anoying.

Here's my experience: RedHat 7.3, Mozilla 1.7, Flash Player 6.0, r79 RedHat 7.3, Mozilla 1.7, Flash Player 7.0, r25 Suse 8.2, Mozilla 1.2 Suse 8.2. Flash Player 6.0, r79 *Using RealVNC 3.3.6: Any page with Flash content crashes the browser. For example: www.macromedia.com Here's the message I get: Gtk warning **: invalid cast from 'GtkSuperWin' to 'GtkWidget' Gtk warning **: invalid cast from 'GtkSuperWin' to 'GtkWidget' ./run-mozilla.sh: line 72: 10030 Segmentation fault "$prog" $[1+"$@"] *Not using VNC (starting Mozilla via an X-Term window on my Windows laptop or on another Linux desktop): Normal Behavior RedHat 7.1, Mozilla 1.1, Flash Player 6.0, r79 *Using RealVNC 3.3.6: Normal behavior. *Not using VNC (starting Mozilla via an X-Term window on my Windows laptop): Normal behavior. *Another note, when I open the page that has the flash content, but the content is not visible, the page loads. As soon as the content becomes visible, it crashes. WORKAROUND: After some research, I figured out that the problem was with the bit depth that VNC was using. Apparently using 8-bits with RealVNC causes Mozilla to crash when viewing Flash content. Increasing the bit depth to 16 solved the problem. start a VNC server as follows: vncserver -depth 16
Steve, can you post a Talkback ID for these crashes ?
Done.(In reply to comment #14)
