Description Pablo Mejia 2004-08-17 00:25:33 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; rv:1.7.2) Gecko/20040803

Description of problem:
After updating using up2date mozilla started acting strangely.  Two
very noticeable issues were:

- Form buttons did not work
- Left click on links failed to do anything, though middle click
worked using a new tab.

I moved my .mozilla directory in case it was corrupt.  After this,
startup (using icon) would cause the mozilla-bin program to consume
lots of CPU and never display a window.  Test with a newly created
account showed the same problem.  Putting the .mozilla directory back
would bring things back to the above broken state.

Looking into /usr/lib/mozilla I found several directories without
group or other read permission.  Giving group and other permission to
read the directories fixed the problem.  The directories were:


Looking at the RPM file I note that the directories are not listed,
though some files under them are.  Perhaps that is part of the problem.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start mozilla using the normal panel icon
2. Note that mozilla doesn't show a window
3. Check top output and see that mozilla-bin is consuming CPU.
4. Wait until bored and note that mozilla doesn't show a window.

Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.

This has been fixed on the most recent rawhide build.

Pay no mind -- just changing resolution to CLOSED:RAWHIDE as per comment #2 from
last year.
