this occurs on any page that i load.  If i double click a few times in the
white area of the url bar seamonkey crashes.  The message it gives is:
MOZILLA caused an invalid page fault in
module GKHTML.DLL at 0177:60227839.

Note that this doesnt occur in viewer.exe when i try the same thing.

Can't replicate this on NT (many attempts); this may be Windows 9x-only.

Tested with: 2000-01-01-08-M13 nightly binary on Windows NT 4.0sp3

I tested this again with a later nightly build to see if it was fixed but it
still crashes me on win98 with build 2000010208

With 2000010208 Win95 (and at least one earlier build 95) I can't get this
to crash. However, Win98 has the spiffy 'roll-out' menus, so it's a slightly
different code base. [Gee, I wonder what it does with the spiffy
fade-in/fade-out menus on Win2K].

I tested this at my work on an NTsp6 machine and it is ok here yet i am still
getting the crash at home.  Can someone test this on a win98 machine and see if
it might be something stupid im doing?   thanks.

Passing to saari/sairuh for XPMenus -- (Note: this seems to be specific
to Win98 menus).

(Although I'll modify my earlier inference: XPMenus don't really depend on
the system menu behaviour (AFAIK)).

hmmm, this i believe falls under claudius' realm, so qa-reassigning to him. it
lies in the grey area btwn XPApps and XP Toolkit/widgets, too., have you tried this with a recent build on win98?
trudelle tried it today (win98, 20000105xx bits) and wasn't able to reproduce

Sorry. Me no have win98. However, the original reporter for this bug,, noted on Jan 03 that it *does* crash on win98 for
build 2000010208 -- but (s)he would like someone else to try on win98
to confirm.

(Doh! me also no read well :-]) Since trudelle can't duplicate on win98,
then : can you provide some more detail that may point
out if|why it happens on your box. Such as:
 * what are the messages in the console window,
 * which win98 specifically is this (there are two, right?),
 * have you *completely* nuked prior installs of Mozilla before
   installing a new nightly build (especially deleting your
   .\Seamonkey or .\bin directory before unzipping|installing),
 * anything else that comes to mind about how your win98 is "different"

The Win98 machines that this is crashing on isnt service release 1 and i have
all of the most recent patches applied.  I usually install the zip file....i
delete old bin and user directories and delete mozregistry too.  im gonna try
it on a few of my friends win98 machines when i get home.

I cant seem to reproduce this on another nearly identical win98 machine.
however i am still getting the crash on that win98 machine no matter what i do.
Could this be some sort of problem i may have with any dynamicilly linked
libraries i have that may be messed up??

I can't reproduce this on any Win32 machine. I gave it a try with several
flavors of Win98 (standard, SE2) and still no luck. I tried with 2000011108
builds. Normally, I'd just mark this WFM but if you can still repro this on
your machine with a brand new build and a really-really clean install AND
provide a useful stack trace, then it's up to saari as to what he wants to do
with this.

well, i am the initial reporter of this bug and i can no longer reproduce it on
any machines that i have tried.  I had a completely clean install before but
this bug appears to be gone.  i guess it can be closed now.
