Click on New Profile and click on Next 4. Create Profile dialog comes up, enter a new profile name, click Finish. 5. Back to the Select User Profile, select the newly created profile 6. Click on Start Netscape button Actual result: crash occurs. Expect result: should not crash, it should bring up the Account Wizard dialog. This problem occurs on Mac only. Win32 and Linux works fine.
Fenella, can we get a stack trace of this? Can you work with a developer to recreate this on a debug build if necessary? Thx.
Correcting component to profile manger.
We have the stack trace for you, Steve. See attached.
Bhuvan, looks like someone broke us again. I don't see us returning from the Run() call here. CCing Ben in case this really is frontend.
Looks like some event handling code is broken... Adding Simon and Pierre to the cc list for their input. Simon & Pierre, Can you help us deciphering the Mac Stack trace and in identifying the code segment that is causing the problem ? Stack trace attached in one of the updates. Thanks.
I'm not sure what to say. There have been other bugs like this that turned out to be an event being sent to code in a window which was no longer around. The JSObject that the JS engine has been told to call is no longer valid and is just a garbage pointer. Eventually some dereference of garbage causes a crash. The real problem is almost certainly upstream somewhere. If you can reproduce this in the debugger then maybe you can get a better sense of what exactly is happening.
Not happenig with the latest M15 & M16 builds. It was a glitch probably caused by appshell event handling. Marking worksforme.
Mac (2000-04-14-04 M15) Mac (2000-04-14-09 M16) I re-tested this bug on both M15 and M16 builds. it does not occur any more.
