I searched the MozillaFirebird bugs database, but I did not found a bug matching my issue and I am postiong it here, because it happens on gentoo, not on my debian @work, neither my Girlfiends debian nor my sisters debian. On all three debians similair versions tested for good: MozillaFirebird-0.6 and cvs tree. At gentoo error is on gcc-3.2.3 OR gcc-3.3 AND gtk+-2.2.1 OR gtk+-2.2.2-r1 OR Mozilla-Firebird-0.6 OR mozilla-firebird-cvs. Entering Tools->Preferences shows checkbuttons pressed, but they aren't. Pressing it again gives same picture, but after that it is really checked. For example "Open Tab in backfound" or Cookie settings. Checking (visually checked) Enable cookies enables the three checkboxes underneath it. Entering Tools->Preferences again: go 4 lines up and reread. Question: Am I the only one discovering this? If yes, why? Bad Karma? If not, did anybody solve that? Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Tools -> Preferences, there check for example "open tabs in bg" 2. OK 3. Tools -> Preferences: Button is NOT checked

Konstantin, this works fine for me using Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; WinNT4.0; en-US; rv:1.5a) Gecko/20030619 Mozilla Firebird/0.6 Did you already give it a try using a fresh, vanilla profile by calling MozillaFirebird with option "-p" -> "Manage profiles" -> "Create profile"? => adding whiteboard
Well that does not help. With MozillaFirebird -P and a fresh Konsti profile its the exact same problem. I already made an mv .phoenic .phoenixOLD earlier which didn't help either... :( Very misterious Bug, what underlying libs could cause it? Or bad shell environment?
Now using Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.5a) Gecko/20030620 Mozilla Firebird/0.6 I realize that right click onto image -> save image as does nothing. Is that another bug already or my this be related to "my" bug? File -> Save Page as works, but not right click into page -> Save Page As, does nothing too.
Yeap - the "Save image as" is broken currently but that's a different thing, so let's see if someone else with Linux can confirm your problem...
Well, today I figured around with it and realized My Firebird was linked against gtk-1.2. So I compiled it against gtk-2.2.2. With gtk-engines-crux it crashed immediatly clicking into it, without it worked but same error. Compile against gtk-2.2.1 it runs with crux eingine but same error. Where could the error be? Am I stille the only guy whose Firebird forgets Preferences? Konsti
nope, you're not the only one. i have exactly the same problem. i am on gentoo, too, and i use mozilla-firebird-cvs, build 5 hours ago. i compiled it against gtk-1.2, gcc is 3.2.3.
*phew* I am glad not being the only one :-) Do you have the Problem on the gentoo with the regular mozilla-firebird-0.6 ebuild too? IIRC I had. Well, lets see which things will come up regarding this problem, if any...
well, i don't no for sure... i haven't tried yet, as there are several threads in forums.gentoo.org which mention "normal" firebird to be very slow sompared to cvs. but i'll emerge and report it. stand by!
oh well, the situation is getting complicated... when i use "normal" mozilla-firebird, it doesn't work, too. what works is to use mozilla-firebird-bin. this is precompiled. unfortunately with gcc-2.95. it would be interesting to know with which flags. maybe we are using too aggressive flags? mine are: CFLAGS="-march=athlon-xp -O2 -pipe -fprefetch-loop-arrays -ffast-math -fmerge-all-constants -frerun-cse-after-loop -frerun-loop-opt -mfpmath=sse -fforce-addr" btw, i normally use -fomit-frame-pointer, but mozilla-firebird-cvs failed to start, complaining about a segmentation fault, so i removed this one.
Hm... My MozillaFirebird never segfaulted because of -fomit-frame-pointer, because i use it. I use CFLAGS="-march=pentium4 -O3 -pipe -fomit-frame-pointer -ffast-math -fexpensive-optimizations -funroll-loops -frerun-cse-after-loop -frerun-loop-opt -fforce-addr -falign-functions=4 -msse2 -mmmx -mfpmath=sse" but the ebuild replaces -march=pentium4 with -march=pentium3 and filters sse2 I use these flags for a long time now, in this time fb began to forget its preferences. So I thought not to be that being the error, but lets give it a try...
OK revo, you got it. I compiled (reemerged) mozilla-firebird-cvs with CFLAGS unset and now it remembers its preferences! Hell, I did not thought of that...
well, fine! but now begins the hardest work, doesn't it? we have to find out which CFLAG might cause the problem to report it to bugs.gentoo.org that the ebuild can be changed... i suggest i build it for -march=athlon-xp, test again and add one flag per time till it begins to fail... is there another way you could think of?
Yes, hardest part of work begins now :-) I suppose -march=pentium4 with -O2 would work, I will test it tomorrow... So adding two options at a time and then removing one or the other seems to be a good way to figure that out for me... There is indeed no help around that. Then there must be a bug report filed to gentoo to introduce that into the ebuild but it is a gcc bug in real. Another try would be to compile this with gcc-3.3, I am curious what that gives. Now I have mozilla-1.4 galeon-1.3.5 and fb-cvs installed and can't decide, all as fast and responsible (well, galeon slightly tops it). Is fb displaying sometimes nearly unreadable fonts on your computer too? Well the big hdd is making it possible to narrow down the bug itself :-)
ok, it is in bugs.gentoo.org now, #23833. should we discuss it there?
*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 165367 ***
I don't really know. But... I think as an compiler bug it is better a quick fix to modify the ebuild, so lets go there.
Adjusting summary. Verifying bug.
