Description

18 years ago
On a home compiled Mozilla using Visual C 5, I am have several (25) assertion 
failures on startup. I first noticed these at about the time the 'jar' system 
was put in (2-3 weeks ago). I have udated my cvs and still have this problem.

The assertion failed is
###!!! ASSERTION: getElementById(""), fix caller?: '!aId.IsEmpty()', file C:\win
dows\mozilla\rdf\content\src\nsXULDocument.cpp, line 3198

If I ignore the assertions, It does boot however the chrome seems very very 
mangled (I will post a screenshot) and some error messages are reported in the 
chrome (see below).

I assigned the bug to rdf, even though the code calling it could be from other 
sections.

environment vars set (amongst others)
set MOZ_NO_ACTIVEX_SUPPORT=1 
set MOZ_DISABLE_JAR_PACKAGING=1

Error/warning messages printed in the window on bootup (ignoring assertions)
"// Global variable that holds the nsContextMenu instance. var contextMenu = 
null;"
"gBookmarkPopuo = null;"
"Menu for Testing."
"Sidebar is currently empty. You may add tabs by clicking on the "Tabs" button 
above. If you would like to completely hide my sidebar, click on the "view" menu 
above and select "My Sidebar""

I have just compiled a build with jars enabled and this has not fixed it, it may 
be a VC5 only problem??
