User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041217 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041217 I have installed the SQL 18.104.22.168 Extension from the https://addons.update.mozilla.org/extensions/showlist.php?application=mozilla&version=1.7&os=windows&numpg=50&pageid=2 page. The installation appears to work correctly. I close down Mozilla and restart it, and the first time I run Mozilla I receive the following alert: "The procedure entry point ?UTF8ToNewUnicode@@YAPAGABVnsACString@@@Z could not be located in the dynamic link library xpcom.dll." (Note that this message is not displayed on subsequent startups.) When I go to the preferences screen I have an option for "SQL Support". However, when I try to add an alias I fill in the details but nothing happens when I click on the OK button. In the end I simply have to cancel the dialog, and the alias is not saved. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Install the SQL 22.214.171.124 Extension 2. Close down Mozilla 3. Re-open Mozilla 4. Choose Edit, Preferences 5. Go to SQL Support tab 6. Click on 'Add Alias' button 7. Fill in details 8. Click on OK Actual Results: Nothing - dialog is not closed, no messages displayed, nothing occurs. In the end I use the cancel button or simply close the window. The Alias cannot be saved. Expected Results: The alias should be saved so that I can test the SQL Support code. I am using Windows XP with Service Pack 2 installed. I have MySQL installed and working (Version MySQL 4.1.9-nt via TCP/IP). I also have Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003 installed - I only mention this because it has interfered with some other programs. As well as Mozilla I also have Firefox and Thunderbird installed. Firefox is my main browser - I've only downloaded Mozilla as I'm an application developer and I'm interested in using Mozilla to develop stand-alone applications for databases - hence my interest in the SQL Support Extension.
I can confirm this with Mozilla 1.7.3 on Linux (FC3). I don't know how to proceed and use the SQL extension.

That error means the component was binary incompatible with that version of Mozilla -- it is not using the clean embedding interface. Registration of the binary components failed which is why the chrome hooks didn't work. You will get that error everytime you do something that triggers component registration -- installing a new component or going to about:plugins Unless the SQL extension is rewritten not to depend on non-embedding Mozilla interfaces (e.g. it could compile in the string library) then it needs to be updated each time Mozilla is and people will have to grab the correct version. This feat is probably beyond the Mozilla Update site.
The SQL extension and component are no longer active.
