BuildID: 2000.03.14.16 As a result of said BrowserAppCore not loading (or the instigator of that problem as the case may be), the browser fails to initialize and go to web pages from typed-in urls. The only other notable message would be "*** Failed to load overlay chrome://navigator/content/NavSecurityOverlay.xul" but there may be no relation. Although typing URLs into the url bar may not work, clicking on the "mozilla.org" and other buttons on the web browser do. Clicking links on these web pages brings up a new web browser window, but their url bar suffers the same unresponsiveness and their links bring up yet more windows (rather than loading in the current one) or crash Mozilla. Also of note: The "Mozilla" box/logo is slightly out of place/does not refresh properly. This problem should be easily repeatable.
Confirmed on Linux nightly build 2000.03.14.16. Here's what the console says: .//run-mozilla.sh ./mozilla-bin MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME=/usr/local/mozilla/package LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/mozilla/package SHLIB_PATH=/usr/local/mozilla/package LIBPATH=/usr/local/mozilla/package MOZ_PROGRAM=./mozilla-bin MOZ_TOOLKIT= moz_debug=0 moz_debugger= nNCL: registering deferred (0) Profile Manager : Profile Wizard and Manager activites : Begin Profile Manager : Command Line Options : Begin Profile Manager : Command Line Options : End ProfileManager : GetProfileDir ProfileManager : GetProfileDir Profile Manager : Profile Wizard and Manager activites : End WEBSHELL+ = 1 WEBSHELL+ = 2 assuming d&d is off for Navigator nsCollationUnix::Initialize mLocale = C nsCollationUnix::Initialize mCharset = ISO-8859-1 nsCollationUnix::Initialize mLocale = C nsCollationUnix::Initialize mCharset = ISO-8859-1 *** Failed to load overlay chrome://navigator/content/NavSecurityOverlay.xul WEBSHELL+ = 3 WEBSHELL+ = 4 BrowserAppCore has not been initialized WEBSHELL+ = 5 BrowserAppCore has not been initialized BrowserAppCore has not been created! The last few messages get written when you type in an URL in the URL bar.
This might come up as Worksforme, but as of 2000.03.15.17, it appears to be fixed. It seems to be something unlikely to reoccur.
[bugday]marking verified. tested on linux build 2000032109.
