Steps to reproduce: 1. Acquire an Intel-based Mac. 2. Download a PowerPC (normal) build of Firefox. 3. Download an Intel build of Firefox. 4. Run the Intel build, then run the PowerPC build. Result: Crash. 5. Run the PowerPC build, then run the Intel build. Result: Crash (sometimes caught by Talkback, sometimes silent). These crashes only happen on the first launch when switching, so they aren't blockers. Tested on Asa's Intel-based Mac with an Aug 3 PowerPC nightly and a July 8 Intel build that I think Chase made.
This happens to me when I switch between debug and optimized nightly builds with the same profile, PPC builds on PPC. So I don't know that this has to do with architecture issues. And I dont' think chase made any Intel builds. AFAIK I am the only one who has made any, and all the builds I would have put on Asa's machine are optimized.
Can you verify that the Intel & PPC builds were from the same branch? A crash on first launch sounds like the mysterious extensions manager crash that I can't seem to find the bug for. It happens everytime I switch from using FF 1.0.x to 1.5.x using an existing (even pristine) profile.
Can someone verify that this happens with two builds that come from the same branch at the same time, with the same debug/optimization settings? And can that someone also provide a stack?
Marking WFM because bug 325765 was just fixed and I never had a stack.
