Linux build ID 2000-071720 This is not quite new - seen it for the past.. 3 days or so. Whenever a page loads, this error message appears one or more times in console: Error getting url widget service: TypeError: Components.classes[progid] has no properties Uncertain about component
This is the urlwidget, which is not implemented on linux (so we should probably just fail silently). --> law

what am i missing.. i thought perhaps the url-widget was that little arrow pointing down, that drops down a list of the current sessions manually entered sites?
I just voted for this bug since it is rather important for testing with the browser buster. Until a few days ago under Linux, the buster reported the URL of each page loaded. Thus, when mozilla crashed, I could go back and examine the offending page. At the very least, I was able to put the URL in the talkback report.
The "url widget" is a Windows-only thing. I'll tweak the JS code so it doesn't complain to the console.

ahh ok. I thought it might have to do with the wrong look of the URL-fields menu-button. (skin missing or something so the down-arrow is black on plain white, only a turqoise line beside it is left of the button-look it used to have)
it simply not displaying in console might not be the "final solution": Please load http://www.dir.bg to see a worst case: I get several thousand of those error lines displayed in console there, and when the page has finally loaded (after a very long time!) - all cyrillic text display as sqares. Almost like the error displays once for each character on page. That url had a bug but marked WFM, bug 47514 (the reported blinking couldn't be reproduced). But something is severely wrong on that page. (For comparision: NC 4.72 displays it in "no time" - and with correct characters.) Tested with a P3/500 on linux 2000080409.
Open a separate new bug for what you note above. There is something wrong with that page (I think it's getting an excessive number of load notifications for some reason). However, this bug really is just about an error message; it should be quieted on linux/mac, but it's not an indication of some deeper problem.
pav commented these lines out; checked-in this afternoon. Marking Fixed.
