Description

6 years ago
Created attachment 544646 [details]
screen shot of my firebug console after trying to reload wav file

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_6_7) AppleWebKit/534.30 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/12.0.742.100 Safari/534.30

Steps to reproduce:

I tried to play a wav file, for example: http://www.dailywav.com/0711/terribleWisdom.wav


Actual results:

The file plays the first time using the quicktime plugin (v 7.6.6). When I reload, there is no sound and no player. Firebug indicates that the browser has cached the file locally.


Expected results:

The browser should have played the cached version.

Just updated to 5.0.1 and this still happens. Note that the User Agent above is incorrect (thats just what I was using when I submitted the bug).

Is there anyone working on this?

Could someone help me understand why my bug report has gotten no replies? Are other people not able to reproduce it? Is this a known issue?

BTW, my actual User Agent is:
Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.6; rv:5.0.1) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/5.0.1
I just got a user report of this same issue:

---
- Log in the Forums Site and go to your User CP and then Edit Options.
- Scroll down until you find some links saying Sound1 Sound2 etc. If I click, say on Sound1, then Sound 3, they both play OK. But if I click on Sound1 again, it doesn't play. I get a small window in which the sound is played normally, and the progress bar shows the sound is being reloaded, but it is not played a second time.
---

Up-to-date Quicktime, running Firefox 7 AFAIK.

I get similar behavior when I try to reproduce in Aurora:

* First time, sound opens in a new tab and plays fine.
* Second time, I get a popup saying that Quicktime needs to install software.
* Third time, I get nothing at all. I don't get a progress bar.

Attempting to reproduce in Nightly, loading the sound file directly (http://forum.m1911.org/sounds/Sound1.wav) does *nothing at all*; Web Console shows the file is downloaded with a 200 status, but nothing plays. stdout prints:

WARNING: null plugin instance during PaintPlugin: file /Users/rnewman/moz/hg/services-central/layout/generic/nsObjectFrame.cpp, line 1752

installed.

I've bumped into this bug (I think) while trying to fix bug 687610
(see bug 687610 comment	#46 and	bug 687610 comment #50).

But what I've seen doesn't match exactly what's reported here, so
Lance and Richard, please do some tests for me.

1) Does this bug also happen in 32-bit mode?

2) Does this bug still happen if you first clear the network cache?
User reported versions:

---
- Mac OS-X Lion 10.7.1
- Firefox 7.0.1
- QuickTime player 10.1 (501)

Steven, thanks for looking into this.

I rebooted in 32-bit mode, and this still happens.

Clearing the network cache fixes this. Also doing a shift-reload will fix it.

I am currently running
Mac OS X 10.6.8
Firefox 7.0.1
QuickTime Player 10.0 (128)
QuickTime Plugin 7.6.6

What do you mean by this?

What I meant for you to do is the following:

1) Quit FF.
2) Right-click on your FF distro and choose Get Info.
3) Check the box labeled "Open in 32-bit mode".
4) Double-click on your FF distro to run it.

Ah, yes I rebooted my whole machine in 32-bit mode.

Following your instructions to start Firefox in 32-bit mode fixes this.

I don't expect this bug to happen on OS X 10.7.X, so I'm puzzled by this.
This bug should be fixed by my patch for bug 687610.

Here's a tryserver build made from that patch:
http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/try-builds/smichaud@pobox.com-fa3385a54298/try-macosx/fennec-10.0a1.en-US.mac.dmg

Please try it out, and let us know your results.

I'm now able to reproduce this bug on OS X 10.7.X.

Steven,
I just saw this post, and your link is broken now. Can you repost it?

You don't need that link.  My patch for bug 687610 is now in current mozilla-central, aurora and beta nightlies (at ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/nightly/).

And this bug should now be fixed (I forgot to mark it fixed earlier).

I have reloaded the .wav from the description for several time and it plays every time.
Considering this, setting resolution to VERIFIED FIXED.
