But when I start it from the cmd.exe, where PATH is longer than 2554 bytes, it crashes. With a PATH upto 2554 bytes, it starts and works. Old Firefox/1.5.0 does not have this problem. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. start cmd.exe 2. set PATH to be longer than 2554 Bytes 3. start firefox from the prompt Actual Results: Windows tells me, that an error happend, when starting firefox. Expected Results: Should statup without problems. I tested this by taking a short PATH, where Firefox worked and than extended PATH by continously adding C:\ to the PATH until Firefox crashed. So, it is not weired content, which causes the problem.
I don't get a crash. Do you get a talkback ID? http://kb.mozillazine.org/Talkback Does it happen with a clean profile?
I don't get a crash either, trunk debug build. You're unlikely to get a talkback ID because the crash is likely before component registration (which is when talkback gets hooked up, as far as I can tell).
I did not install talkback, so I have not got an ID, but I reproduced the problem several times. The profile is not clean. It was first setup, when Firefox was called Phoenix ;-). It also contains quite a few extensions, which are installed locally since the Firefox-Directory is readonly on my machine. Firefox 1.5.0 runs without problems with the same profile. I will try to setup firefox in a VM and try to find out, whether the problem occurs there too.
I installed a new firefox on a virtual machine with windows 2000 and had no problems. Then I copied my profile to this machine, and I had the same crash. I also sent a talkback, which I installed this time. Then I startet to delete one extension after another and tried again. After deleting "HTML Validator 0.7.9.3" the problem disappeared. Then I deleted my whole profile. No Problem. Into the new profile I installed only "HTML Validator 0.7.9.3". Firefox crashes. So the problem appears under the following conditions: Firefox 184.108.40.206, HTML Validator 0.7.9.3 and a long string in PATH. (4420 Bytes I had in this test) I tried the same test with Firefox 1.5.0, since I first noticed the problem after I installed 220.127.116.11. The problem also occurs in 1.5.0. So it seems as if I have not started firefox from the commandline in the last time - what a surprise to me ;-)
