Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 496549
New filter cannot be created in Gmail using Galeon
Last modified: 2009-05-02 17:26:58 EDT
Description of problem:
'Create a New Filter' is bringing up the usual window, but whenever some new criterion is entered and 'Test Search' is clicked, everything other than 'Cancel' is greyed out. And that too does not work. Coming back to 'Inbox' shows no mails on the right pane. Reloading the page shows it again.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
uname -r: 126.96.36.199-85.fc11.i686.PAE
galeon --version: GNOME galeon 2.0.7
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Go to 'Create a New Filter'
2.Enter a new criterion
3.Click 'Test Search'
Software stops functioning
A new filter should be created.
The same thing is happening with Firefox and Midori on F11. So, this is not specific to Galeon. I will try Opera and report that here.
Yes, Opera could do it. Though it reported that I have to download and install the 'flash' plugin from Adobe, but without that step it worked too. I could create a new filter.
Assigning to xulrunner.
Works for me with firefox-3.1-0.11.beta3.fc11.x86_64 and xulrunner-1.9.1-0.11.beta3.fc11.x86_64
Is there something special about your configuration, plugins, network, something, which would enable us to reproduce it here?
Just now I tried it with Epiphany, in another tab, and exactly the same thing happened. What you wanted to know, "anything special" is too general for me to give you feedback. And I am not at all technical, not any developer, just an user. Anyway I am trying.
My software versions are:
Mozilla XULRunner 1.9.1b3 - 20090327190835
GNOME epiphany 2.26.1
Mozilla Firefox 3.1b3
GNOME galeon 2.0.7
uname -r: 188.8.131.52-100.fc11.i686.PAE
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E8400 @ 3.00GHz
Motherboard: Intel DG41TY
The graphic driver is still not there in F10, 'xdriver=vesa' enables a kind of install. So, I had to go to F11, that driver is there, though the audio driver is still not there. I am telling you these because maybe there lies 'anything special'. Maybe this driver has got something to with it. Anyway, it is no 'urgent' bug in the sense that Opera is there.
Hmm, OK, I'll try more specific questions. Can you reproduce this with firefox in safe mode, i.e., start it as
Yes, you were right. Just now I created a filter by starting firefox that way. Will that work with Epiphany? Or Midori or Galeon? Usually I don't use firefox. It seems too heavy, more like IE in MSW.
Works for me in firefox, and does not work for me with both epiphany and galeon. Xulrunner specific issue ?

Actually, I cannot reproduce it even with epiphany-2.26.1-1.fc11.x86_64 ... see attached screenshot. No button is greyed out.
Throwing back to galeon land. I am not saying that xulrunner might do something incorrectly, but I think what's needed is more investigation from epiphany/galeon folks.

Thank you friends.
As you suggested, it was xulrunner doing the crime.
After today's update of xulrunner I can now create a filter in Gmail in Epiphany. I have not checked the other browsers, but I presume they will work too.
WORKSFORME now with galeon too. Closing.
