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.

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...

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.
