I received an email with two attachments: One a word document, the other a plain/text attachment. Trying to preview this message induces the error above in Thunderbird 1.0.2. The message layout (from Mutt) is: I 1 <no description> [multipa/alternativ, 7bit, 2.8K] I 2 tq><no description> [text/plain, quoted, us-ascii, 0.8K] I 3 mq><no description> [text/html, quoted, us-ascii, 1.7K] A 4 INVITATION - Transfer Pricing 7 April 20 [applica/octet-stre, base64, 384K] A 5 ATT2622908.txt [text/plain, base64, us-ascii, 0.8K] Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.

Your Java plugin is incorrectly installed (symlink broken ?)
I thought Thunderbird wasn't supposed to use plugins? That's how I read the previous tickets about this problem.
After doing a little Bugzilla mining, I applied the --disable-plugins to the FreeBSD port .mozconfig template and all is well. If this is required to get rid of this problem then why isn't it thrown by default in the Thunderbird build?
"INTERNAL ERROR on Browser End: Could not get the JVM manager; System error?:: Unknown error: 0" is directly form a a Java plugin which failed to find the JVM. The plugin calls exit() and that can't thunberird survive. The reason for this must be that you have a broken JRE symlink in the plugin directory or that you copied the JRE plugin. That makes it invalid. disabling the plugins via configure would be also a solution but that's not the problem itself.
Throw me a bone here. Which plugin directory? Some system-wide place or in my home directory? In a global Mozilla plugin directory or something specific to Thunderbird? I only install ports via the FreeBSD ports system, so I don't quite know how I could have removed anything. I accept what you say, but unless you are more specific as to which plugin directory you're talking about, it's like you're speaking German :)
I checked my .mozilla/plugins directory, I don't have a broken symlink. It points to a valid Java shared library: $ ll .mozilla/plugins total 4 drwxr-xr-x 2 clint users - 512 Jan 28 08:23 ./ drwxr-xr-x 4 clint users - 512 Jan 27 20:02 ../ lrwxr-xr-x 1 clint users - 62 Jan 28 08:23 libjavaplugin_oji.so@ -> /usr/local/jdk1.4.2/jre/plugin/i386/ns610/libjavaplugin_oji.so Is there something wrong with using this plugin?
Everything on my system, including the Java plugin, is compiled with gcc 3.4.2.
Created attachment 186334 [details] Message which demonstrates the crash Here is a message from the Lout mailing list that throws Thunderbird into a tailspin.
same crash and message here with yesterdays thunderbird (linux version 1.0+ (20050720)) on opening any mail on any account or starting to compose a new mail - removing the link to the java plugin from ~/.mozilla/plugins makes the error go away - the plugin works fine in the deer park alpha2 browser peter
Same here  on Tbird 1.0.2 for sparc solaris with the link to the Sun java plugin in the plugins/directory . I don't see any java in the mail message, however trying to view it causes the Bird to barf. Can't attatch the message as it contains proprietary content.  /apps/mozilla/thunderbird/thunderbird INTERNAL ERROR on Browser End: Could not get the JVM manager System error?:: Error 0  ls -l /apps/mozilla/thunderbird/plugins lrwxrwxrwx 1 root other 53 Aug 1 08:22 libjavaplugin_oji.so -> /usr/java/jre/plugin/sparc/ns610/libjavaplugin_oji.so
I have also started to recieve crashes when selecting a message. (Linux) MOZ_PLUGIN_PATH="/usr/lib/nsbrowser/plugins/" javaplugin.so -> /opt/sun-jre-bin-1.4.2.08/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/libjavaplugin_oji.so
Get this with Thunderbird 1.5b1 on Solaris/Sparc (built by me). My Tb 1.0.6 uses the same setup (e.g. MOZ_PLUGIN_PATH) as Tb 1.5b1 without this crash.
we worked around this in 1.0.x. Joe won't like it but we may have to work around it again in 1.5.
See Bug 289126 for a lot of detail on this issue.
Created attachment 197482 [details] [diff] [review] disable plugins again like we did for 1.0 I was hoping more folks would have updated to the newer version of the java plugin (which doesn't tell us to abort), but it looks like there are still a lot of folks out there using this troublesome plugin. This patch makes 1.5 do what 1.0 did, and that's to disable plugins in Thunderbird. I'd rather not check this into the trunk because I'm still hoping that most users will end up with jvm1.5.0 or higher (which kindly doesn't tell our process to abort).

I believe a lot of people still use Java 1.4 since it is default in Solaris 8 and 9. Solaris 10 is the first Sun OE to use Java 1.5 as default. > I'd rather not check this into the trunk because I'm still hoping that most > users will end up with jvm1.5.0 or higher (which kindly doesn't tell our > process to abort). Fine by me but then it probably should be noted in the Release Notes somewhere that it needs Java 1.5. And how come Firefox doesn't have this problem?
probably because firefox has a jvm manager :)
Comment on attachment 197482 [details] [diff] [review] disable plugins again like we did for 1.0 Ick. This error only happens on linux, right? Couldn't we do something less severe like preffing plugins off, or preffing plugins off only on linux?
we've worked around this again on the 1.8 branch.
(In reply to comment #19) > Ick. This error only happens on linux, right? Couldn't we do something less On Solaris too.
thanks for resolving this bug which resolved also my bug https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=308647 for some podcast rss feed
Regression: reappearing in trunk build version 3 alpha 1 (20061008) on Linux. Moving libjavaplugin_oji.so out of $HOME/.mozilla/plugins fixes it but deprives firefox off Java. I don't have powers to reopen... Michael
Had the exact same issue on beta 3.0. INTERNAL ERROR on Browser End: Could not get the plugin manager System error?:: No such file or directory Fixed it by running 3.1 alpha1. Sweet!
