Description

8 years ago
I've had this problem for weeks and just assumed I wasn't the only one, but maybe I am! :)  I can load fennec and display about: pages, but if I try to go to any URL I'm shown a blank white page (data does appear to transfer). 

I'm on a G2 using Gecko/20101229, but I've upgraded nightlies several times and continue to have this problem.

Happy go give any other info you need, but I'm not sure what else you could use.  I recently cleared all my local data in fennec in an attempt to fix this but had no change.
Does the new page's title and/or URL appear in the titlebar when you try to load a page?  Does the spinning throbber icon appear and then disappear?  Any messages in the error console?

If you don't have the error console enabled, you can enable it with Nightly Tester Tools: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/mobile/addon/252537/

Did you do this with the "Clear Data" button in the Android Settings, or with "Clear private data" in the Fennec preferences?  (The former will completely delete your Fennec profile, while the latter only removes certain data like cache/history/cookies.)

The URL appears, the title does not.  There is no spinner.

I managed to install the tester tools from the add-on manager (network works!).  I only see 2 things in the error console:

---------------------------------
Warning: Cannot load binary components from a jar
Source file /data/app/org.mozilla.fennec-1.apk.components/components.manifest Line: 35

Could not read chrome manifest file '/data/data/org.mozilla.fennec/chrome.manifest'.
---------------------------------

I retyped that here by hand, but I think it's right.  The /data/data/ on the second message is not a typo.

I used "Clear Data" in the android settings
Does it work with an other profile? Could you try to go to about:config and
check the value of browser.tabs.remote? It should be true otherwise remote page
fails to load with the error:

************************************************************

How do I test it with another profile?

browser.tabs.remote is true

Could this be another instance of bug 620747?

It looks very similar, except I can load about:config.  If the answer is to uninstall/reinstall I'll do it.  I just don't want to throw away useful info if it can help other folks.

Is there anything else I can contribute here?  If not, I'll uninstall/reset - I'd really like to be able to use my browser again.
Yes, probably best to uninstall now - since we're not getting more reports of the same problem, it's probably already fixed or was a fluke of some sort.
