Description

19 years ago
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; WinNT4.0; en-US; m17) Gecko/20000727
BuildID:    2000072708

I have a skin with differing XBL that crashes mozilla after switching themes.
The file skins/GreenNBlack/communicator/skin/menubuttonBindings.xml is redefined
for this skin to reflect a different layout of the drop-down back menubutton.
If this file is left the same then no crash will take place.  (I tested by
changing just this file and reinstalling the skin.  I can change themes without
crash if it is set to the default.)

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. click URL to download and install skin greennblack
2. open prefs and switch skins to greennblack
3. browse a web page

also happens going the other way:
1. open prefs and switch skins to modern from greennblack
2. browse to a web page

Actual Results:  mozilla crashes.

Expected Results:  No crash, mozilla switches skins and continues to operate
like a modern <--> classic theme switch.

There is no crash on a modern <--> classic theme switch with or without this
skin installed.  Changing from one to the other operates just fine for me.
