http://www.8ung.at/tolkien/MusikKB/mozartPS9_Presto.mid requires a plugin, maybe that is crashing your installation.
Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.8a5) Gecko/20041002 Firefox/0.9.1+ WFM, and the midi file plays I did get this message in the console: ###!!! ASSERTION: RootScrollFrame is not scrollable?: 'scrollableFrame', file ../../../../../src/layout/html/base/src/nsPresShell.cpp, line 3528 Break: at file ../../../../../src/layout/html/base/src/nsPresShell.cpp, line 3528
I suspect that what is not scrollable is a sound only Quicktime Item, but I don't really know. If so, I doubt that it should trigger an ASSERTION.
Thanks for your input. I think the MIDI-File crashes the browser. After installing the actual release of "plugger" (v5.1.3, was not installed before) the browser won`t crash. Using a clean profile, mozilla shows the plugin-finder and points to plugger. What could prevent this? Other plugins installed: Shockwave Flash 7.0 r25 Java(TM) Plug-in 1.4.2_04 mplayerplug-in v0.91 libnullplugin.so
!Mike: it's likely that the mplayer plugin was crashing and installing plugger overrode it, grabbed the midi file and handed it off to something else (and didn't crash). Or did you have an older version of plugger installed before? Either way, you should use mozplugger instead -- plugger hasn't been maintained in quite a while. Anyway, unless you can reproduce a problem without any plugins, the crash is almost certainly not Mozilla's fault and you should report the problem to the plugin author.
I already tried to disable the mplayer plugin, but that didn`t help. This plugin does not handle midi files. I played around with the plugins and found that an old version of libnullplugin.so in the user profile directory caused the crash. When removed, mozilla used a new, system-wide provided version of this plugin. I think this plugin was included in an early version of mozilla (Feb 4 2002) and I forgot about it. Is this a special setup or can it happen to other users too?
When you install a new version of Mozilla, it removes the old files, so it should not be possible to get into your situation without active intervention. marking INVALID -- this is not a Mozilla bug.
Verified invalid. Thanks everyone!
