Howdy. Using a build based on tuesday 02/08/00 CVS, the Open Web Location dialog has not worked properly. I have seen two different actions, but can reproduce only one of them at the moment. To reproduce: click on File|Open Web Location... Result on my computer: mozilla must be killed. If you get the actual dialog box, try entering a location into the dialog, and then hit "OK" -- the two times I saw the dialog box, and did this, I had to kill mozilla. HTH :)
Sarah, might you know who should receive this bug?

Hmm. When testing it again, I was able to load http://www.mozilla.org into the current window; well, it tried anyway. After ~45 seconds, it stopped trying, having displayed only the splash banner. (I am on ethernet, so it really shouldn't be going slowly. :) So, I tried http://www.google.com into a new browser window, and *poof* segfault. It left behind this on my console. It might be tied to the "open in new window" button. I recall now that the previous times it crashed, I used that button. (I did under m12 with no problems...) I will try to remember to test this bug again with today's cvs -- give me about ten hours to test that, perhaps. Thanks :) WEBSHELL+ = 7 Move window by 319.5,96 screen x 1screen y 23 WEBSHELL+ = 8 WEBSHELL+ = 9 WEBSHELL- = 8 WEBSHELL- = 7 assuming d&d is off for Navigator Scheduling later attempt to set content window Loading page specified via openDialog Check if a view source window
Ok, more information. This sequence of steps caused me to think mozilla had hung: 1) Open mozilla. 2) Open a new browser window. 3) File|Open Web Location in the new browser window. This actually *does* open the correct dialog box, but ... it isn't visible, and the other browser windows stop responding to input. So, if you use your window manager's functions to change to other windows (for me, middle mouse button on the root window -- using window maker) the dialog box will be visible, and it seems to work as expected, once visible. This is using a build of 02/09/00 CVS.
This bug is getting a bit annoying -- I switched to the sawmill window manager, and now I cannot get the OpenWebLocation dialog box to appear on screen at all. At least with window maker I could get access to the dialog box again, but not with sawmill. I don't know how the window is being opened, but please change it so the dialog box is opened on screen. :) Without access to the dialog box, mozilla is useless, and this might as well be consider a crasher. :) :) I added the "beta1" keyword, maybe the PDT team will agree, maybe they won't. :)
See also bug 28594 -- likely a dup, and that one takes place under Win98.
I've just done some testing with build 2000022708 on Win98, and Open Web Location is always-on-top and doesn't interfere with other browser windows.
*sigh* ccherlin, count your blessings. :) It is very annoying to have to kill a process that isn't dead, but just won't give you a dialog box. :) I just retested, and reconfirmed, this is a problem with february 27th CVS.
firstname.lastname@example.org: h'm, i cannot repro this using today's opt comm bits 2000022808. what i do is (1) open a new browser window (File > New Nav window), (2) File > Open Web Location (in this 2nd navigator window), (3) enter a url (eg, http://www.google.com/), click Open button. result: the webpage loads, no crashing or hanging... i'm not running Sawmill (am running Elightenment in gnome). also running Redhat linux (kernel v2.2.12-20). pavlov, you're running Sawmill, can you repro this?
Sairuh, what are these "opt comm bits"? :) hehe. I do believe I configure with --enable-optimize, but .. I could be wrong. Is this the same thing? Thanks :) (BTW -- it didn't look like pavlov got a CC: from you (based on my headers..)) :)
in ~/.mozilla/profilename/ try deleting localstore.rdf and see if it comes up on screen. there is an open bug somewhere about bringing dialogs up on screen... I think it is assigned to Chris Saari
This is a combination of bug 19255 (which allows a modal window to fall behind other windows, which then go dead for no apparent reason) and bug 26834 (which allows a new window to show up offscreen). Killing as a duplicate of the one scheduled last. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 19255 ***

danm, deleting ~/.mozilla/mozProfile/localstore.rdf seems to have fixed the problem -- Open Web Location works fine now, the Search|Find on page works again -- of course, I have tested only a few times, but at least now when it goes AWOL I can fix it! :) Thank you. :)
