Description

14 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041103 Firefox/1.0RC2
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041103 Firefox/1.0RC2

When I click Help -> About Mozilla Firefox, the resulting window displays an
XHML parsing error in line 45, column 3 (this is the end of the file) of
chrome://browser/content/aboutDialog.xul. It appears that there are some
malformed characters choking the XML (I get "PK[block][block]" where "[block]"
is a weird rectangular character placeholder. When I review the file in
question, I see no obvious problems

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click Help -> About Mozilla Firefox


Actual Results:  
Yellow XML Parse Error screen appears where the About dialog is expected.

Expected Results:  
Displayed About dialog.

Oddly, this works now. I had to restart Firefox after a non-responsive page
caused the browser to hang (maybe that should get a bug report too), and all of
a sudden, the About dialog works. I've attached a screen shot I took of the
original issue to prove that I'm not crazy.

I'm a moron. Must've had two copies of the browser open, as now that I look at
the UA below, I see that the issue was with RC2. Still, when I run RC2 now, the
problem's gone. Anyway, I'm changing the status to invalid.
