Description Kjartan Maraas 1999-04-12 21:49:11 UTC
Netscape communicator dies when fetching addresses from the address book. This happens when double-clicking them and the highlighting them and clicking the 'to:' button. Address book imported from previous version. Upgrade from 5.9.1 to 5.9.7
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 1999-04-12 22:14:59 UTC
I can't reproduce this here. If I double-click on an address, it opens up the properties window fine. If I right-click and select compose new-message, it works OK. How are you getting it to crash?
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 1999-05-24 18:49:59 UTC
Does this still happen with 4.6 (yes, I know we haven't released this yet...)
Comment 3 Kjartan Maraas 1999-05-28 14:14:59 UTC
I tried this again with 4.6 and it still dies. XFree86-SVGA ET6000 2.25 MB RAM, 16 bit, 800x600. Kjartan Maraas
Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 1999-06-22 15:41:59 UTC
Arrgh. I still can't reproduce it. Out of curiousity, does invoking netscape as: LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/i386-glibc20-linux/lib \ /usr/i386-glibc20-linux/lib/ld-linux.so.2 \ /usr/lib/netscape/netscape-communicator solve it? Unfortunately, this will break plugins, spawned viewers, and other things....
Comment 5 Kjartan Maraas 1999-06-22 19:13:59 UTC
Sorry, this didn't help either. I could send you the video board if you have a replacement for me :) Seriously, I'll try to swap the board and see if that helps.

Could not get this to fail with Communicator 4.51 as shipped with Red Hat 6.0. Also have heard that it works fine with 4.6.
