User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; SunOS sun4u; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030701
Build Identifier:

Installed Mozilla 1.4, launched it. Everything is fine. Two days later 1.5 is
released and I install and launch it. It gives these two errors:


Gdk-WARNING **: gdk_font is NULL or not a fontset.

Gdk-WARNING **: gdk_font is NULL or not a fontset.

The window launches, and I have no buttons or any picture. I do have the
title of the page "Getting involved with mozilla" and that is it.
All processing of CPU is finished as if it has loaded. It is like a kiosk
window. I can't do anything like select "close". I have to kill it from the
command line.

SunOS 5.8 Generic_108528-20 sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Blade-100

Again, I just installed your 1.4 gzip, it worked. 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.unpack .gz file ./mozilla
3.kill %1

Actual Results:  
Mozilla browser launches and you can do nothing at all. I am labeling Critical
because this is something that should be working out of the box. 

Expected Results:  
Mozilla browser launches with intro page and you can surf web.

Does this problem still occur if you start with a new profile?
I've seen a few funnies with profiles created from earlier versions of Mozilla
not working properly on Mozilla 1.5

I have checked the patches, and I am either up-to-date or beyond what is necessary. 

We have an account which we always "test" with the first time we install new
mozilla clients. This one performed the same or or segment fault--ed. We would
always try with the old profile, then if there was an issue, rename everything to
(blah).old and launch again. 

I tried it on my account (I use 1.4) and I get the (lockup look) and I renamed my
.mozilla to .mozilla.old and launched, same results.

Recapping, I launch, it comes up gray (the whole browser). The outline of the
browswer shows the title on top. (Welcome to Mozilla or something like that) and
the bottom does not give me the browser, mail, address book, etc icons, it just
says "Done" As if it already loaded the page. I then cannot hit the top right
X button to kill it, I have to do a "kill -9" to get rid of the browser.

If you run the TestGtk program in the mozilla directory and click on the File ->
Test Stream option, do you get the 'Hi there' message.

Can you also do a library check on the mozilla-bin binary in the mozilla
directory using  the command...
/usr/bin/ldd mozilla-bin

and include the output of the ldd.
The problems that you are describing sound like a problem with the gtk1.2.x
libraries on your machine.

Solaris 8, 1.6 for gtk2 installation works and I get no errors or crashing.

I have made no path updates, but going from 1.4 to this 1.6 version seems fine.
Not sure what was wrong with 1.5.

reject or close this...
