Description Burt Holzman 2002-10-25 23:29:58 UTC
Mozilla "save as" options no longer work: they pop up the file picker dialog 
box, but no directories are available.  You can get moz to crash by clicking on
"show hidden directories".  This is mozilla-1.0.1-2.7.2.

To reproduce, pick a site (www.google.com), right click on the image, and
select "save image as ..."; you get the bad dialog box.

This also seems to be a config munge or some sort of version incompatibility;
this occurred only after I ran up2date this morning.  Removing my ~/.mozilla
directory allows it to work properly.  This may be the same bug as reported
in Debian Woody
(http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=158041&repeatmerged=yes
)

I'll attach the gdb backtrace from the crash as well.

Comment 2 Burt Holzman 2002-10-30 21:16:39 UTC
Well, I did a binary replace on files in my .mozilla dir; apparently the
XUL.mfasl  file is not completely compatible between upgrades.  Deleting this
file seemed to fix the problem, so that's a possible workaround.
