Description User image revo 2004-07-16 07:12:30 PDT
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040626 Firefox/0.9.1
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040626 Firefox/0.9.1

Firefox crashes every time I access the following site:
The page starts to load and then, at some point, it closes all windows and tabs.
It just "disappears". I can't identify which object on the URL makes it crash.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. load
2. see it crash

Additional information:
When I launch firefox from a terminal, I get the following output when it crashes:

revo@hal:~$ /opt/firefox-0.9.1/firefox
Warning: Cannot convert string
"-b&h-lucida-medium-r-normal-sans-*-140-*-*-p-*-iso8859-1" to type FontStruct
INTERNAL ERROR on Browser End: Plugin instance index out of bounds 25705

System error?:: Resource temporarily unavailable

revo: Could you provide TalkBack incident ID?
Comment 3 User image revo 2004-07-17 08:40:58 PDT
Sorry, didn't read the BugWriting guidelines carefully enough...
Here it is: TB350831M.
Is this a correct Talkback? I never used this before...
Anyway, as I had to download a build which is talkback-enabled, I can provide
you with some more information:
The crash only occurs, when I have the in the plugin-dir.
When I access the page without it, firefox doesn't crash, it just wants to
download the plugin.
Maybe this helps.

TB350831M is what I want, but this one is nearly blank. What version of Java
plugin do you have?
Comment 5 User image revo 2004-07-18 02:19:17 PDT
It is the plugin from precompiled j2sdk-1.4.2 package by sun. The plugin should
be the version compiled with gcc-3.x

Could not reproduce the bug (OS X 10.3.5, Firefox 1.0, Java 1.4.2). Page loads
fine here.

I was just about to create a new bug when I came across this which appears
to be related to my problem. Similar result, different site:

Version: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8a6) Gecko/20041223

OS: Red Hat Linux 3.2.2-10 (aka RH 9.0 Pro)

Reproduceable: Always

Expected result: page loads

Actual result: browser exits

Steps to reproduce:
  1. load
  2. browser exits
  3. shell where browser started contains the following output:
*** nsExtensionManager::_disableObsoleteExtensions - failure, catching exception
so finalize window can close
*** loading the extensions datasource
*** loading the extensions datasource
INTERNAL ERROR on Browser End: Exec of "java_vm" failed: 2
System error?:: No such file or directory
INTERNAL ERROR on Browser End: Could not read ack from child process
System error?:: No such file or directory

I used from Sun (j2re1.4.2_06/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/lib).
Removing the plugin asked me to download the plugin but it did not crash.

This did not crash in Mozilla 1.2.1, but I also did not attempt to 
enable java applets with Mozilla 1.2.1.
Comment 8 User image timeless 2004-12-26 12:50:45 PST your problem sounds like you copied the plugin to your
plugins directory (in direct contradiction to the installation directions and
the faq and whatever other documentation there is). but just because a message
says "INTERNAL ERROR on Browser End" does not mean it's the same problem, in
fact its the tail that distinguishes the problems ...
Comment 9 User image Adam Hauner 2005-04-12 01:07:44 PDT
revo <>: Could you still reproduce this crash with Firefox 1.0.2 or
actual nightbuild?

Comment 11 User image Alfred Peng 2006-03-30 03:03:55 PST
Revo, the link you provided is out of date. Could you give us another one?

Andy, your testcase can load correctly here on Solaris, with Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; SunOS sun4u; en-US; rv: Gecko/20060206 Firefox/ and Java(TM) Plug-in 1.5.0_06-b05.

Could anyone reproduce the crash?
Comment 12 User image Alfred Peng 2006-03-30 03:16:14 PST
It also can't reproduced on Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv: Gecko/20060124 Firefox/ here and Java(TM) Plug-in 1.5.0_05-b05.
Comment 13 User image Morgan Christiansson 2008-04-08 18:51:55 PDT
The URL gives a 404. Bug should probably be closed.
