Bugzilla old





18 years ago
Entering a bug report with mozilla doesn't work. When I click on the "Open
bugzilla entry form" all I get is a blank popup window. (well, actually I get a
window with my homepage, but that is a known mozilla bug).
This bug is 100% reproducible.

Umm, I should just make it crystal clear that the problem is with the bug
helper, not bugzilla itself...
I _think_ this was due to a JS error I introduced during an update, which I have 
since fixed. Reporter - could you try this again, please?

Nope, still doesn't work.
Can I have a Build ID, please? Also, I need to know what the Javascript console 
says (i.e. if there are any errors). Can't remember where it is offhand - search 
the menus :-)

it is in tasks->tools.

My build is 2001012506

You seriosly need to make the javascript console cut-pastable! Here is a copy by
Source File: chrome://global/content/scrollbarBindings.xml#scrollbar.initScrollbar()
Line: 2					Column: 0

Error: uncaught exception: SCrollbars in this skin are not properly supporteg
mac smart-scrolling prefs!

I just compiled the very latest and greatest version of the source code. Still
doesn't work.
Worksforme on Win95, 20010129 downloaded nightly. I will try with Linux soon.

See also bug 67215.
Mozilla 20010202 worksforme on Linux 2.2.13, with KDE. <shrug> I have no idea
where to go from here.

Those JS errors don't look like they are related to Bugzilla Helper. Could you
make sure you press the Clear button on the JS console just before you attempt
to use the Helper, and see if you still get them?

Pressing the clear button before gives the same errors.

I just had an "accident" with my debian unstable, so I reinstalled (debian
testing this time). The error is still there.
OK, what's happening here is that the Javascript Security Manager is not letting 
the script write to the new window it's created. I wonder why:
a) It works on other platforms
b) It works for me on Linux but not for you.

We really need the man who owns this code to come and explain things to us. Step 
forward, :-)

Just an idea - it might be a consequence of the new window is not empty bug. Try
setting your homepage to fx , and set browser start
to the homepage and see if you get the bug.

Possible dup of bug 66034, "Content in Mozilla disappears seemingly at random", 
which is marked as "critical for 0.8".
