Try to load mozilla without the plugins, i.e. remove the java and flash plugins from the plugins directory. Tell us if this did the trick. :) Fabian.
I'm not sure that I _have_ Java and flash plugins. The plugins directory extracted from the tarfile contains only libnullplugin.so. I tried deleting that and then mozilla started normally, once. To confirm, I restored everything from the tarfile and it crashed next time I started it. So I deleted libnullplugin.so again and this time it still crashed on start-up.
reporter, have you tried a clean install of Mozilla with a new profile?
*** Bug 62741 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Was the build used 2000-12-11-*21* ? If so, it may be the problem caused in that build only by the fix for bug 55293.
I tried deleting everything in .mozilla and restarting. Same crash, so far as I can see. Regarding the exact build number, yes it could well have been 2000-12-11-21, but how do I find that out if I can't start the programme? I can't see the build number anywhere obvious in the installed s/w. "strings mozilla-bin | grep 2000" doesn't find anything. Would it be possible for you to lob a little text file into future builds stating the build number?
If you don't see a build id it's probably 0.6 branch, http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/nightly/latest/mozilla-sparc-sun-solaris2.6.tar.gz should be trunk for a while.
This is starting to look serious, three people on solaris reported this. Someone busted Solaris?
*** Bug 60350 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
this *could* be related to ultrasparc-only code that we're compiling... is anyone who is seeing this seeing it on unltrasparc, or just sparc?
I'm seeing it on an Ultra 10, sun4u architecture. Kernel jumbo patch 105181-22.
I see the crash on an Ultra 5: SunOS cass111 5.8 Generic_108528-03 sun4u sparc SUNW,Ultra-5_10

Umm.. sorry to poke my nose in.. but this is still labeled UNCONFIRMED ... seeing as other bugs are marked as dupes.. I think that confirms it. Marking as New.
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true
Crash is confirmed on Sun Ultra 1. Crash with SEGV is NOT confirmed on sun4m architecture, as the programme won't run there at all! mozilla-bin is reported by the file utility as mozilla-bin: ELF 32-bit MSB executable SPARC32PLUS Version 1, V8+ Required, dynamically linked, stripped and (IIRC) SPARC instruction set V8+ is only available on sun4u. This is a problem in its own right, as Solaris sites tend to have lots of sun4m machines still in service.
I also see this bug, and I am running: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; SunOS 5.7 sun4u; en-US; m18) Gecko/2000121121 I have no plugins. I'm running on an Ultra-60. My mozilla doesn't always crash however. However, once it does crash, I can't get it to run again unless I run an older build first. When it crashes it leaves the same stack trace as the one listed by the original reporter. Ending in: #0 0xfc0329f4 in nsGlobalHistory::ExpireEntries () #1 0xfc032e58 in nsGlobalHistory::CloseDB () #2 0xfc02df9c in nsGlobalHistory::~nsGlobalHistory ...etc... I also have a cleaner startup: ./run-mozilla.sh ./mozilla-bin MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME=.

cc people who might know about sparcs. If this is a build issue, please send to build config. Thanks
Whiteboard: Leaf suspects the target instruction set is unavailable
my theory is obviously not it, if people are seeing a crash on ultrasparc.
Whiteboard: Leaf suspects the target instruction set is unavailable
The problem has gone away in build 2000121421.
Just tried the 2000/12/19 nightly build and I get the same problem as I reported in bug <a href="http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=62805">62805</a>. Which is not exactly a crash. I don't recall if I tried the 2000/12/14 nightly build or not but I have tried yesterday and todays build and the problem was the same.
Is anyone on solaris still seeing this? Chris Lusena, you might consider re-opening your bug, since the symptoms are not the same (didn't crash at the same place). However if you can no longer reproduce, leave it as a dup. Thank you!
The latest builds of mozilla (as well as build 2000121421) are working for me (SunOS 5.6 on UltraSPARC II). Thanks so much developers!!
can we get one more confirmation before we resolve this bug?
Just got back from vaction and tried the 20001231 build it now works for me.
excellent. marking wfm
