Ever since finding out how to add things to my sidebar, I've been doing just

that. The given URL is a new XML page I've been creating with the hopes of

making it a search tool similar to the included Mozilla search panel, but for a

specific web site, moo.ca. The page is viewable now in M15, and it's very little

currently to look at, but the 2000/05/21 daily crashes on it consistantly. This

is the only output that's related on the console:


.//run-mozilla.sh: line 29: 21390 Segmentation fault      $prog ${1+"$@"}

This seems to be an endless loop in nsXULElement::GetContainingNameSpace:

I tried this today using yesterday's NT debug build.  The crash no longer 
happens, but, the page does not display at all.  Removing crash keyword and 
updating summary.
Keywords: crash
Summary: XML document causes crash → XML document does not display

When I go to this url using Mozilla, I get the following message in the content 
area of the browser: "Redirection error: Infinite loop detected".

The Necko guys need to investigate this further.  Re-assigning to Gagan...

I also see this error message when going to: http://javascript.com

Then clicking on: Popup Window Maker

Or any of the main article links that point to: http://redir.internet.com/*

Possibly related to bug 42353

I have the same problem going to http://www.distributed.net and clicking on 
their .plans link. (actual address 
http://n0cgi.distributed.net/cgi/dnet-finger.cgi) My new URL address in my 
address bar is 
xul after clicking in

I cannot seem to reproduce the bug in todays build (id: 2000062408.) Mark bug as
resolved or leave as new?

Comment 14

No. Original bug still exists. The redirection error is gone, but the page still
does not load for me with today's build (2000062408).

Comment 15

Yeah, but thats a totally different bug than the one stated here. I don't know
how bugzilla works (brand new at this) but when we close this bug, wouldn't that
close the duplicates? Because the problem with the page loading up has nothing
to do with what is stated in the summary. So your current problem with loading
the URL could be overlooked when they do a test. Makes sense doesn't it?

Nisheeth Ranjan renamed this bug on June 16th when another bug (which has now
been fixed) made the page impossible to get to. Now the bug that I originally
reported still exists, the page does not load.

ruslan: these seem to be some edge cases of your check for redirect-loops.

No. The redirect is fixed. All pages in this bug except for the sidebar would

Gagan, can I assign this to you? I must have done something stupid to have it
assigned to me.

I still don't know how this happened but I'm reassigning but to owner of
selected component. My limits in C++ are defining classes and recursion. Heck, I
never used a pointer before!!!!!! I hope I didn't mess anything up.

It seems to me it's WORKSFORME now. (Linux nightly 20000926 from trunk)

This is definitely not working yet. In fact, I've seen it twice today (first
times in a long time.) To duplicate it: go to
click on the third link on the page:
You should get this in your URL bar:
So, please don't mark WFM.

Comment 28

Hmmm I don't understand how it's connected to original error. This is completely
different bug. Mozilla doesn't issue a message that the file doesn't exist. And
there is another bug that the file redirect_loop.xul is in a different directory
(chrome/comm/content/necko/redirect_loop.xul). If you put that path into the URL
bar mozilla loads the file fine.

Comment 29

I think that this bug may have disappeared- I can't duplicate it on any of the
test cases linked to from here, nor can I dup it from similar testcases in a
couple of related bugs. I think we should mark as WFM- any objections?
