Description

6 years ago
I currently get the following error at the top of about:memory on Firefox 9.0.1 and Gecko/20111229 Firefox/12.0a1 (Both Ubuntu builds):
"An error occurred when collecting a multi-reporter's results: [Exception... \"Component returned failure code: 0x80004005 (NS_ERROR_FAILURE) [nsIMemoryMultiReporter.collectReports]\"  nsresult: \"0x80004005 (NS_ERROR_FAILURE)\"  location: \"JS frame :: chrome://global/content/aboutMemory.js :: getReportersByProcess :: line 295\"  data: no]"

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=688233#c23 suggested this was desired, so I filed a bug

Sorry, I forgot to put in the first comment that I suggest telling the user something like 'Unable to access /proc/self/smaps' per that other bug comment.

Severity: normal → minor
The smaps reading code is long gone, so this shouldn't be a problem any more.
