Build ID: 20001108 (NS6 branch) Platform: Mac OS 9 To reproduce: - Launch the profile manager - Create a profile with a long name (I'm guessing more than 32 chars) - After activation, the My Sidebar area is blank - Tabs | Customize Sidebar gives a window with no available tabs (it's all blank) - If you quit and relaunch Netscape 6, the profile you just created will have disappeared
shrir, could this be a result of bug 58099?
58099 is (was) about blank 'what's related' and that is fixed.
reassinging to racham.

It will be nice if we have a feature in nsIFile that tells us the platform specific limitations so that we can enforce the check from the frontend...
Doing a mass reassign to Conrad Carlen. Conrad is going address all current and upcoming profile manager issues. Please do not hesitate to involve me in any of the issues.

Yikes, it sure does. The front end needs code so the user knows the name is too long and the backend should ensure this as well.

Target Milestone: --- → mozilla0.8
The above patch makes the front-end limit the profile name length. Since we don't have a good XP way to find this limit, I just used navigator.platform.
we should capture other OS's too (at least linux and windows).
-> mozilla 0.9

-> future. It's an edge case.
