User-Agent: Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux ppc; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040210 Firefox/0.8 When I install an extension the download manager opens, but nothing happens after that. Even the XPI for downloading isn't shown (like it does on my x86 and sparc). A friend of mine told me, that he has segfaults during this action. I saw something similar in bug #233843, also PPC, but on Mac OS X. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. compile firefox-0.8 from the official tar-ball 2. go to the extensions room 3. choose an extension for download Actual Results: download manager opens, but nothing will be downloaded Expected Results: download the extension and install it

I heard from the Gentoo Community, that everybody has problems with installing extensions. I read in the OS X bug, that there should be a fix in the CVS. What about rolling a new tar-ball (like it is said on the website that this should be done monthly)?
The bug is still present in the latest CVS. Here's a backtrace: #0 0x0e073d74 in non-virtual thunk to nsDownload::Release() () from /home/ice/mozilla/dist/bin/components/libtoolkitcomps.so #1 0x0e073d6c in non-virtual thunk to nsDownload::Release() () from /home/ice/mozilla/dist/bin/components/libtoolkitcomps.so #2 0x0e06e228 in nsDownloadManager::AssertProgressInfoFor(unsigned short const*) () from /home/ice/mozilla/dist/bin/components/libtoolkitcomps.so #3 0x0feec454 in XPTC_InvokeByIndex () from ./libxpcom.so #4 0x0f015aac in XPCWrappedNative::CallMethod(XPCCallContext&, XPCWrappedNative::CallMode) () from /home/ice/mozilla/dist/bin/components/libxpconnect.so #5 0x0f01e570 in XPC_WN_CallMethod(JSContext*, JSObject*, unsigned, long*, long*) () from /home/ice/mozilla/dist/bin/components/libxpconnect.so #6 0x0ff8b764 in js_Invoke () from ./libmozjs.so #7 0x0ff95990 in js_Interpret () from ./libmozjs.so #8 0x0ff8b840 in js_Invoke () from ./libmozjs.so #9 0x0ff8bc1c in js_InternalInvoke () from ./libmozjs.so #10 0x0ff64060 in JS_CallFunctionValue () from ./libmozjs.so #11 0x0ea8f640 in nsJSContext::CallEventHandler(JSObject*, JSObject*, unsigned, long*, long*) () from /home/ice/mozilla/dist/bin/components/libgklayout.so #12 0x0eada41c in non-virtual thunk to nsJSEventListener::SetEventName(nsIAtom*) () from /home/ice/mozilla/dist/bin/components/libgklayout.so #13 0x0e909004 in nsEventListenerManager::HandleEventSubType(nsListenerStruct*, nsIDOMEvent*, nsIDOMEventTarget*, unsigned, unsigned) () from /home/ice/mozilla/dist/bin/components/libgklayout.so I grepped for nsDownload::Release() and nsDownloadManager::AssertProgressInfoFor(unsigned short const*) but couldn't find them any where in the code, so I don't know what's going on there.

Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.8a) Gecko/20040502 Firefox/0.8.0+ Mac OS X 10.3.3 I was able to install a few extentions... both inside Firefox.app and my profile... can not test a PPC Linux build.
Well, firefox-0.9 can now install extensions on Linux/PPC. So I close this bug.
