Description Ivo Sarak 2002-12-25 06:31:27 EST
Description of problem:    
After upgrade from RedHat 8.0 to RedHat 8.0.92 when I start Galeon it will  
keep starting itself so in every second there is yet another copy of Galeon  
How reproducible:    
Every time.    
Steps to Reproduce:    
1. Upgrade from Red Hat 8.0 to RedHat Public Beta Phoebe.    
2. Start galeon. 
Actual results:    
Continous flow of started Galeons... 
Expected results:    
Only one Galeon happily running...   
Additional info:    
[IS@haskaa IS]$ rpm -qa|grep mozilla   
[IS@haskaa IS]$ rpm -qa|grep galeon  
[IS@haskaa IS]$  
(Deletion of .galeon directory did not help.)    
This may be related to my reported issue about Mozilla:  
How to fix the issue?

I had a somewhat related problem with galeon a few days ago. I downloaded the
source rpm from mozilla.org and compiled both mozilla and galeon with athlon
optimization. When I started galeon it kept opening a new tab. It may have made
new tabs instead of windows in my case since I have it set to use tabs instead
of windows for things like popups. I would close the tabs and more would come. I
went back to Mozilla 1.0.1 for a while, but the native themes bug got really
annoying. So then I saw Mozilla 1.2.1 and Galeon 1.2.7 were in rawhide. So I
just downloaded them and they have worked great.

There is definitely something "strange" going on with Galeon as when it start
doing "automatic starting" it will cripple Mozilla
(https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=80375) and to stop this
has to be reinstalled.
Comment 3 Gene Czarcinski 2003-01-29 17:04:04 EST
I also saw this.  Updating to the rawhide packages for mozilla and galeon (plus
deleting the ~/.galeon directory so it had to start oven) fixed the problem.

That might have been one of the fixes that I included.  Marking as WORKSFORME.
