spun off from bug 88893, based on my 2001-07-09 12:26 comments: using today's 2001.07.09.04-branch commercial bits. :( * i cannot launch from the Profile Manager [used ./netscape, and got the prof mgr since i've got multiple profiles] * but i can launch from the cmd-line [using -P option] is anyone else seeing this using today's bits? fwiw, i used the stubs installer, with a custom installation [i installed everything *except* Java]. is anyone seeing this using trunk bits?
this is a regression. this was not a problem when i used 2001.07.05.10-branch commercial bits on linux.
Keywords: pp, regression
another datapoint: with the same build --but using the non-installer tarball-- i don't see this problem. could this be an installer issue, then? cc'ing syd and ssu... bumping down sev for now, since i've found a workaround...
Severity: critical → major
am able to use -profilemanager to launch ( and test pm) with branch bits - BUT only with build (tarball or installer) that does not include java see bug 89488
okay, using 2001.07.11.05-branch comm bits, i installed w/stubs installer *without* java...and, unlike my 2001-07-09 12:26 experience, i was able to launch the profile from the Profile Manager. then again, grace was sitting next to me while i did this. perhaps her mere presence made this issue wfm. ;) who knows? anyhow, grace sez that she and ktrina will investigate this further as needed. let me know if you need further info/help from me.
i'm now looking at my 2001.07.09.04-branch comm installation: just went to http://www.java.sun.com, and the java applet started running there, and about:plug-ins does list the java plug-in. my apologies, i had thought that i hadn't installed w/java back then. the hallucinations are over.
branch 2001071105 .9.2 branch recommended install/custom install with java deselected profile manager is functioning and launching see bug 88893 for fix
nothing to see here...
