Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 3615
Page colors and properties dialog box crashes Netscape 4.6.1
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:50 EDT
When using Netscape Communicator i open a Composer window
and try to change page properties, if i change something
(for example, the packground color or the document title)
and then press the OK button to close the dialog box,
Netscape crashes and closes all its windows.
The workaround for this is to modify page settings, then
press the APPLY button and then close the dialog by
clicking on the window's manager "X" (close window) button.
I'using Gnome and the Enlightenment window manager, and i
installed all the latest upgrades for XFree86, the kernel,
plus the utempter update and other stuff, my machine is a
Pentium II 233 with 128Mbyte of ram.
I know the XFree86 update was supposed to fix some problems
with applications using the statically linked Motif toolkit
(like Netscape does, as far i know), but event this does not
resolve the problem.
I think the problem is in the "OK" button click code, or in
the way the Motif toolkit communicates with XFree86
(by clicking on the window manager provided "x" button
i actually bypass part of the Motif toolkit code).
Unable to replicate this in test lab on any machines. Reopen this bug
if you are able to pin this problem down any further for us.
