The terminal window I started mozilla in gets the error message Gdk-ERROR **: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter) serial 14430 error_code 3 request_code 61 minor_code 0 the "serial" number is variable, on two other tries it comes out 7809 and 6381, the rest of the error message is invariant this is absolutely reliable, happens every time I open a new tab with control-t (right-clicking on a link works fine). I tried installing mozilla 1.7 twice, I also tried mozilla 1.8a, it happens every time with all of these. It doesn't happen under mozilla 1.6, which I am therefore currently using. I can hardly believe this bug exists and hasn't been reported before, but I can't find it in the list of known bugs. In case it matters, here's more about my system: localhost:ken% uname -a Linux localhost.nyc2.dsl.speakeasy.net 2.4.22-emp_2423rc2 #1 Tue Nov 25 12:59:33 EST 2003 i686 unknown localhost:ken% more /etc/mandrake-release Mandrake Linux release 8.2 (Bluebird) for i586 2.4.22-emp is a kernel customized by Emperor Linux (www.emperorlinux.com) for laptops; I'm running on a sony vaio pcg-z505LS.

Actual Results: mozilla opens a new tab for a moment and then crashes with above error message Expected Results: open the new tab without crashing
Same as Bug 249688 ?
Ken: Could you provide TalkBack incident ID?
(In reply to comment #1) > Same as Bug 249688 ? Yes, this appears to be the same bug. Sorry I didn't find it myself. Ken
(In reply to comment #2) > Ken: Could you provide TalkBack incident ID? I am not certain how. I started [mozilla-dir]/components/talkback/talkback and told it to leave the agent on. Then I started mozilla 1.7 and hit control-t to evoke the bug, mozilla crashed but the talkback agent didn't do anything. What should I be doing to hook talkback to the mozilla crash? Thanks -- Ken
Ken: I'm not Linux user, so I could advice Mozilla 1.7 re-installation with TalkBack enabled (AFAIK its optional extension in installer). I'm marking bug as dupe of bug 249688. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 249688 ***
