Description

14 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0
Build Identifier: http://www.archlinux.org

Any time the "Save As" dialog or the "Save or Open With" dialog should open,
firefox hangs.  When recompiled with logging and debug enabled, I receive error
messages about malformed URLs and aEncodingType being null (I believe it was the
ParseURL method of nsStandardURL).

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. As far as I can tell, not all archlinux users have this problem
2. Open any page
3. Click on a link that does not have a defined handler (i.e. *.mpg, *.torrent)
or
3. Right Click on anything and click "Save Link As"

Actual Results:  
Firefox hangs, requiring manual killing of the process, no dialog is seen

Expected Results:  
A dialog box should pop up and/or the file should be saved to disk.

archlinux 0.7, all current updates

ndiswrapper wireless driver....
Can the problem be reproduced with an official mozilla.org build?  What about
using current trunk builds?

I'll look into official builds, but I have a feeling it may have to do with
something else... something external.  It appears to be failing whenever it
tries to handle mime-types locally (another application, saving, etc)... The
preferences box hangs too when clicking "Plug-ins" in the Download options
tab... also the "File Types" list shows nothing.

I'm having exactly the same problem with the same debugging output when using 
the FreeBSD native port for Mozilla Firefox.

The output when opening Firefox, and using save link as (then it freezes) is 
exactly:

To STDOUT:

hope this is not normal):

If i run the official build for Linux using FreeBSD's Linux ABI everything works 
fine.
