Hi, Gwyn ---

Unfortunately, I can't reproduce this with today's Linux build (2000030909). 
Could you possibly try again on a more recent (e.g. past 36 hour) build? Thanks!

Sorry there is no daily build for linuxppc and I can't build (I lack the disk
space). Ack. Is there a more recent build for linuxppc available than M14?

Comment 3

Err, sorry, I don't think Linux PPC is a formally supported platform, although I 
may be mistaken.

This is either Simon or Pavlov.

*blinks* I thought you guys supported anything people were willing to work on?
At least that's what it says in my first ever bug #15399. Are you sure you
aren't thinking of netscape not mozilla? I wonder how they got the linuxppc M14

Comment 6

Yeah, you're right, I am thinking of the Netscape supported platform list, rather 
than the Mozilla list. I'd suggest trying the mozilla unix newsgroup where you 
can get a more informed answer. ;)

WORKSFORME in a snapshot build from 3/9/2000 at about 2:00 AM on Debian/PowerPC.
I think it's probably gone.

<open question>I built the M13 and M14 binaries, and I build nightlies
regularly, are you saying there is interest in me uploading them? Would the people be interested in them, or should I put them on my personal
site ( As builds go, they're all over the place -
optimize, debug, tip, M14 branch, patches from bugs that haven't yet checked
in... but I could label them slightly and put them somewhere if people care, at
least occasionally.

b.judd - I will put the nightly that I am using as I say this on my page at so that you can check this out. I'm marking
worksforme, comment if it needs to be reopened (ie, you still see the problem in
the nightly). Email me if you have trouble running the build, but I'll try to
include the needed shared libs in the tarball (I statically link a few for the
milestones that LinuxPPC has trouble with).

Okay I'll give that a go. As a side note I would be really interested in having
nightly ppc binaries available

It should be up real soon here. I will start putting occasional builds up on
southpole then. I'll make it a category on the sidebar.

lemme make that clearer, I mean mozilla nightly's will be a categore in the

sidebar of my webpage. Nothing to do with mozilla's sidebar.

Rubber-stamping as verified.

Re: Linux stuff. You're far more likely to get a useful follow-up on
netscape.public.mozilla.unix than here; I'd suggest posting there, but it's
already being discussed there as we speak.

Regardless of whether linux PPC is a supported platform, this is a problem on
Intel linux as well.  The editor's entire edit menu is greyed out virtually
every time I look at it, and pasting via ^V or alt-V never works (though
middle-mouse pasting works fine).  I'd been assuming all this time that there
was an open bug covering this.

Reopening and nominating for nsbeta2.

kin, akkana: sfraser is on vacation.  I was going to grab this bug until I saw it 
was linux only.  Can either of you pick this up?  I'll even volunteer to copilot, 
if you want, but I need a linux savvy persona to own this.
Changing bug status to NEW since it is already [nsbeta2+].
Ever confirmed: true

Oops! This is what happens when Eli stops eating dogfood for several days. 

Just copying and pasting within the URL bar does not work on today's Windows and 
Linux builds; the paste menu item is disabled. 

It does, however, work on the most recent Macintosh build that I have available, 
from July sixth.

Fixed. I update the Paste menu item now when you Copy, and also on window and 
widget focus.

The only case not dealt with is auto-copy on linux; if that's a problem, please 
open another bug.
