2004-02-12 Trunk builds

  • Fixed: Make newer versions of the Windows Media Player control work in Firefox by registering the executable name with the Windows Media Player.
  • Fixed: 132517 - prefs.js frequently truncated on exit or crash.
  • Fixed: 13350 - DOM needs to police JS infinite loops, schedule garbage collection.
  • Continued regression: 232617 - Location Bar dropdown loads new tab.

    didn’t crash on startup like the one for Feb. 10th did for me.

    Javascript problem — the recommended test page: http://www.bodo.com/javame.htm

    still makes a Javascript banner that persists through any and all tabs once opened.

    This is with no extensions, starting from a fresh profile, though copying over bookmarks, cookies, etc. but nothing carried over from chrome folder.

    I haven’t figured out bug reporting formally yet, well enough to know if this is known already. ?

    Did anyone else try the latest FirefoxSetup.exe (2004-02-12 or 13, ftp’d from http://ftp.oregonstate.edu 30 minutes ago) ? It crashes at the very startup with me (XP SP1), even with a new profile.

    XML Parsing Error: undefined entity

    Jean-Marc, I got the same thing with aebramin’s 20040212 ‘nightly-like’ build.

    Thanks. Feel free to “Bugzilla” it if you’ve the time.
    (I lost my Bugzilla password, a password bound to a free mail provider down since last week.)

    —> Is this covered in bugzilla, can anyone say? I’m still rather baffled by that system.

  6. Bill Mason Says:

    The XML parsing error was already reported in bug 234223.

  7. Jean-Marc Gillet Says:

    Bill, thank you for the reference. It won’t help the installer’s reputation … :-/

  8. Jeff Walden Says:

    Quick request, Jesse: as there’s no branch right now can we switch back to just posting as “2004-02-13 builds”, eliminating the Trunk part? It cuts down very slightly on the clutter.

  9. Jesse Ruderman Says:

    Jeff: I was planning on doing that in the next few days.

  10. Hank Says:

    I’m not sure if there is just a difference in names, or if the Burningedge 2-12 Mac OSX version is a day older than the one at the official link?

    Respectively they are:

    Latest link shown here at Burningedge is:


    But when I look at the official source,
