Description Jonathan Kamens 2002-02-25 09:20:28 EST
Every time I try to visit in mozilla-0.9.8-2, it
exits shortly after attempting to contact the URL.  It exits with status 127
according to tcsh, and it doesn't appear to leave a core file.

Netscape 4.79 can view this site.
Comment 1 Jonathan Kamens 2002-02-25 13:36:56 EST crashes mozilla too.  I suspect that
mozilla has a problem with /usr/lib/netscape/plugins/, which
I've installed from netscape-common-4.79-1 and which mozilla-0.9.8-2 is finding.
Comment 2 Christopher Blizzard 2002-02-26 13:38:02 EST
It's got flash on the page.  What happens if you disable the flash plugin?
Comment 3 Jonathan Kamens 2002-02-27 11:38:18 EST
Define "disable the flash plugin."  I can't just delete it, because netscape
4.79 uses the same plugin, and it works with netscape 4.79, and I want it to
keep working with netscape 4.79.  Is there some way to tell mozilla to ignore a
particular plugin?  If so, I couldn't find it.
Comment 4 Christopher Blizzard 2002-02-27 18:49:47 EST
You can remove it from /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins which shouldn't affect Netscape 4.x.
Comment 5 Jonathan Kamens 2002-02-27 21:56:00 EST
Yes, removing from /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins makes mozilla
forget that it knows how to do Flash, and thus it doesn't crash when viewing
these pages (but it doesn't view them completely either). It would seem that the
flash plugin is not compatible with mozilla-0.9.8-2.  I also tried the flash
plugin currently available for download from the Shockwave Web site, and that
one doesn't work either.
Comment 6 Christopher Blizzard 2002-02-28 07:58:35 EST
No, I suspect it's incompatibilities in the compiler versions.
Comment 7 Christopher Blizzard 2002-08-29 17:34:58 EDT
We build with 2.96 again so this should work.
