From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows 98; Win 9x 4.90)
BuildID:    2001060712

Mozilla hangs while displaying the startup screen with the following 
message: "Registering native component layout.shlb" After deleting the 
Preferences-File and trying it again it hangs while displaying "Registering 
native component MsgImap.shlb"

It is not possible to quit the program with - for example - control, command, 
escape. I always have to restart the computer..

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
On a Power Macintosh 6400/200, MacOS 8.6. Just double click on Mozilla and wait 
for things to happen..

Actual Results:  The mouse can be moved around but I can do nothing but restart 
the computer.

Reporter: Can you try it again with a fresh profile ?
(On win2k, linux : run "mozilla -profilemanager" but I know nothing about Mac )

With Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC; en-US; rv:0.9.1+) Gecko/ 2001061108 on an
imac bondi blue with macos 8.6, and Mozilla starts perfectly without crashing,
is not exactly the same machine, but almost the same specs. Poster try with a
current build and a fresh profile, and post another comment if still you have
the problem.

Now I tested several configurations: the same file (mozilla-mac-0.9.1-TB.sea,
build 2001060712) works fine on a G4 with System 9.1. When I copy the expanded
files from the G4 to the 6400/200, the same things happen (hangs while startup).
But when I copy the Mozilla-files from the G4 after making a "first run" on it,
they work fine on the 6400. (I deleted the Preferences file every time before I
tested a new configuration)
The startup messages of the working Mozilla are only: "Starting up" and
"component registration finished", while all the other versions show up all the
other messages, stopping with "Registering native component layout.shlb"

G4 is so fast that just it don't show what is loading in the splash screen
:),lets try deleting all mozilla folders from the system and installing a fresh
build from instead of passing
from the other machine.

I just tried the same thing with the Net-Installer with the build-ID
(2001061508) and it works fine now!
