I had this same problem with M17. I am now using [Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; WinNT4.0; en-US; 0.6) Gecko/20001205]. I get no response from any URL, whether I type it in or click on a link. I'm assuming I have a bad DLL somewhere in my NT installation that Mozilla is dependent upon. Can you tell me what DLLs Mozilla assumes to be present? Or, is there some debug flag I can turn on that will flag give me a useful dump when connectivity problems are encountered?
Before any debug attempt, please delete your old profile (including mozregistry.dat, mozver.dat, and everything else) and run 0.6 with a new profile. Don't keep any old file from M17. Remember 0.6 is based on a very OLD build and has thus a lot of bugs that don't appear in the nightly builds. Thank you, Fabian.
Search bugzilla for references to depends.exe However I doubt that it will help you. Do you use a proxy server?
not a blocker, as others are not seeing this. as fabian says, in your windows directory, delete moz*.dat
Severity: blocker → major
I whack moz*.dat. That had no effect. I do, in fact, use a proxy server. What effect might that have? This is obviously a problem with my NT installation. However, the code in Mozilla that should be accessing the net when I click on a link is quietly failing. Is there anyway I can make it fail verbosely?
Have you set up your proxies correctly? Have you tried setting Prefs Debug->Networking HTTP to 1.0 instead of 1.1?
I don't want thist to sound Microsoftish, but maybe reinstalling Mozilla, maybe a more recent build would help
Marking WORKSFORME due to lack of response. Feel free to reopen if this is still occuring in the latest nightlies after all the steps listed above are taken.
