User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:126.96.36.199) Gecko/2008121622 Ubuntu/8.10 (intrepid) Firefox/3.0.5 Build Identifier: Nightly Build on Feb-9-2009 1846 CST When I try to launch thunderbird I get the below Error Output and TB does not start. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------- krevuru@krevuru-desktop:~/Documents/MyApps/thunderbird-3b2n0209$ ./thunderbird The program 'thunderbird-bin' received an X Window System error. This probably reflects a bug in the program. The error was 'BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)'. (Details: serial 1098 error_code 3 request_code 20 minor_code 0) (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously; that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it. To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.) krevuru@krevuru-desktop:~/Documents/MyApps/thunderbird-3b2n0209$ Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Downloaded the Nightly Build. 2. Unzipped it to a Location. 3. From command line, navigated to the directory and entered $ ./thunderbird 4. Thunderbird does not start but Errors out.
My OS is UBUNTU 8.10
Additionally, I just found out that this version of TB crashes only if I select an existing profile created even if the profile is for yesterday's nightly Build. I created a new profile for today's Build and it seemed to open up fine. FYI.
What do you get if you start thunderbird in this way : ./thunderbird --sync ?
Version: unspecified → Trunk
I did not try that way. I did not know of a --sync option, I only knew of a -profilemanager option. I will try to see if I have the same issue with today's nightly Build (02-11-2009). Thanks
Updated Comments on 02-11-2009 Nightly Build. I tried to run TB3 but it suffered the same issue as the filed Bug. But it seemed to work when I used the --sync option. BTW, what is this --sync option? Thanks
(In reply to comment #5) > BTW, what is this --sync option? I found out about this --sync option in the error message you pasted in the initial bug. I suspect something is not configured properly on you X11 installation. man X11 should give you a detailed explanation for the --sync option. I would love to get the stack trace that you have when launched with --sync and breaking on gdk_x_error(). If you don't understand this at all, just let me know.
