User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_5_8) AppleWebKit/534.50.2 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/5.0.6 Safari/533.22.3

Steps to reproduce:

Clicking on an e-mail in my inbox list.

Actual results:

It attempts to open and HTML e-mail, then it then crashes. This has been happening for about 2 months now and is making work difficult. Only some HTML e-mails crash it, others open fine.

Expected results:

The e-mail should have opened. It appears there is a corrupt plist file or something because the same thing is happening to TextEdit and another app I can't even think of right now. Is there a common library between SeaMonkey and TextEdit that you know of that might help me narrow down the reason for these repeated crashes? It seems there is some problem with the rendering of only certain HTML as some HTML e-mails actually open fine. Text e-mails open fine. Any help would be appreciated as I have used SeaMonkey (and before Netscape Communicator) for as long as I can remember for e-mail and would like to continue to do so (and may be updating my OS from Mac OS 10.5.8 to 10.6.4+ soon so I can update SeaMonkey further). This issue seems to be something corrupted on my system since it affects more than one application. I've tried downloading a fresh copy of SeaMonkey and then still use my existing account's e-mails but that didn't help, then I copied my whole account folder in and that didn't help either. So corrupt plist or something I can delete and it be regenerated?

I've submitted this as a bug to get specific, quick support and not a lot of guesses from other users as my case doesn't seem like something standard.

1. SeaMonkey 2.13 is obsolete and Safari is of no interest to Mozilla developers. Please upgrade to SeaMonkey 2.17 or later.
2. Next time it happens, please (on restart) save a copy of the offending email (File → Save As → File) and attach it to this bug.
3. Please also browse to about:crashes, and paste into the comment to the attachment (step 2) the name of the corresponding crash (highlight the bp-something name with the mouse in the about:crashes page, then Edit→Copy, then paste it into the comment to the attachment).

e-mail that crashes SeaMonkey

1. I can't yet upgrade because I have a lot of work going on and you no longer support Mac OS 10.5.8. I don't think I mentioned Safari, just TextEdit as both TextEdit and SeaMonkey started crashing when opening things with HTML at the same time, that's why I'm thinking it's some shared plist library or something that is corrupted.

2. I've attached an e-mail that crashes SeaMonkey (one of many).

3. Here is a list of all the crashes I've reported that show up in about:crashes, with the topmost being the report from the crash e-mail that is attached:

Sorry SeaMonkey 2.13 is not supported any more. Is your Mac a PPC or Intel Mac?

Comment 5

Intel, according to UA string.
Looking at bug reports it seems that problem was fixed either in next release (SM 2.14/FF 17.0) or in newer OS (10.6 or above) as all reports happens in OS X 10.5 and highest reported versions for SM/FF are 2.13.2/16.0.2. Also, there are no bugs with TAATMorphSubtableMorx found in Bugzilla so fix was unintended. One thing you can try if OS upgrade is not possible now is to turn off Hardware acceleration.

Thank you Phoenix. That was exactly the kind of information I was hoping for, something fairly definitive to my exact problem. I still think something was corrupted as everything was working fine until one day SeaMonkey just crashed and after that it did it regularly as well as TextEdit having the same symptoms.

Thank you for your time and expertise in the matter. I've been holding out for a long time since I wasn't able to upgrade Mac OS because my Adobe CS3 apps wouldn't work, but now I've found through research that Apple made some fixes and I can upgrade, so I can then upgrade SeaMonkey as well. Just need to find the time to do a clean install on a new clean drive.

In reply to comment #3:

Thank you for all the crash links, especially the one which goes with the attached email.

The reason I mentioned Safari is that you used it to report the bug. When you report the bug with the exact browser and version on which you saw the bug, the "User Agent" at the top of the "Description" (comment zero) in the bug report gives some iformation about that browser, which developers can use to try and find between which source changes the problem appeared. In the case of a crash bug, the same information is part of each crash report, so nothing was lost here, only delayed.

Happy browsing after you upgrade, but do you really need a new drive? Can't you just trash the old SeaMonkey installation and get an up-to-date one from the current version of the .dmg ? Well, I wish you all the best anyway.

I generally user SeaMonkey for e-mail and Safari for browsing, it's just my preference.

Well, when I do a clean install of a new operating system and do a clean install of all apps, I'm hoping to upgrade to a 6G solid state drive from Other World Computing as I've been running on the same drive for a year or two now and will shift the old drives down into the raid as I have 4 externals as-is. My reason for not just installing a new version of SeaMonkey is because my current Mac OS 10.5.8 is no longer supported by newer versions of SeaMonkey so I can't just simply update/upgrade as I've done for years.
