fix frequent crashes on 64bit platforms none

Description Nicholas Miell 2004-09-08 19:12:22 EDT
There's sizeof(int) verses sizeof(void*) problem in Firefox's
autocomplete implementation that causes frequent crashes anytime
you're  typing in autocomplete-enabled input boxes on a 64bit platform.

Upstream has it fixed, but it's not in 0.9.3.

Here's the patch.

upstream, for comparison:

Comment 4 Warren Togami 2004-09-20 01:51:36 EDT
Is this fixed in our 0.10 (PR) firefox package?
Comment 5 Nicholas Miell 2004-09-20 03:42:02 EDT
AFAICT, your 0.10 (PR) package isn't available to the public.

However, if it's based on firefox-1.0PR-source.tar.bz2, then, yes,
it's fixed.

Should be in rawhide soon.
