Description

17 years ago
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win95; en-US; 0.8.1)
BuildID:    2001041104 (+ every build since 0.6)

Since PSM is part of the distribution, I am unable to start it up. It always
crashes as soon as I press the lock button at the bottom (or connect to a secure
site).

I expect that this problem might be something specific to my configuration, but
I have no idea what i could be (a missing or ancient library?).

BTW, all Linux versions run fine on the same computer.

I also cannot use proxy servers (neither manually configured nor automatic).
Could this be a related problem?

The crash info:

PSM caused an invalid page fault in
module NSPR4.DLL at 0157:60d7299d.

I forgot to add:
I am reporting this now, because I cannot start any of the new builds at all.
They crash at startup. I assume the problem has to do with the integration of
PSM into the preferences.

Interesting.  I was seeing what you describe, also on Win95, for several months
prior to the landing of the new PSM.  But now (e.g. Build ID 2001041212), it
works fine -- I can use SSL and such with no problems.

2001041212 did choke on my old profile on startup, though:  have you renamed
your Users50 and tried that way?  FWIW, I was able to copy my existing
bookmarks, cookies, prefs, and mail files into the newly-created profile
directory without any problem.

Thanks, Eric.

It seems I made the wrong connection. Mozilla crashed because of the old Profile
it didn´t like and not because of PSM.

I think it had to do with these new intermediate directories with random letter
(or so it seems) that it likes to make in recent versions (I had a similar
problem befor in a Linux build, so I should have been warned...)

And yes, the new PSM works for me too now. Sweet!
