From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/4.61 [en] (X11; I; Linux 2.2.5-15 i686) BuildID: 2000041805 I installed m15 from the exe and it refused to run... I got the splash screen and it almost crashed my computer (Win95, P133, 48M RAM) by open multiple number of windows. These were not normally sized windows - they were small almost the size of the title bar! and around 2 inches long (I could just see the title mozilla) I donno why this happened since I could get it to run at work on a Win98 machine. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Start up mozilla! Actual Results: Creates multiple mozilla windows thereby slowing down the computer, the only option I had was to hit Ctrl-Alt-Del and End Task. Expected Results: Should have started up beautifully!
could be related to bug 27601, too hard to tell for sure ->browser gen for triage
more closely related to bug 37192
I think the first one was right. Marking dup. Reporter: please reopen if the fix doesn't work. Symptoms & fix, from bug 27601 (sometimes MSVCRT.DLL seems to be needed, too): ------- Additional Comments From firstname.lastname@example.org 2000-03-04 23:56 ------- [...] Instead of exiting nicely and cleanly it started spawning multiple copies of itself and sucking up system resources until 95 crashed. ------- Additional Comments From email@example.com 2000-03-18 16:41 ------- OK, just to let everyone still following this bug know that a fix has been found in bug 32340 (a duplicate of this bug, essentially). Find msvcirt.dll on the net (here is a copy http://www.winappz.com/msvcirt.zip), and put it in your c:\windows\system directory. Then mozilla loads up perfectly! *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 27601 ***
the problem was with the msvcirt.dll However, it didnt work when I put it in the windows\system directory - it worked when I put it in the bin directory.
"VERIFIED Bugs remain in this state until the product they were reported against actually ships, at which point they become CLOSED." Did we suddenly ship Mozilla without anyone notifying me? :( Really, though, why was this moved from verif to closed?

vrfy...please don't mark closed this time around unless there's good reason to (there really shouldn't be)
