Re: Mozilla suite stability on 2.4/2009Q4

:Hello all
:I recently (finally!) upgraded my main dev system to local builds of
:both 2.4.1 and 2009Q4 pkgsrc packages -
:Since doing this, I've been getting a ton of firefox / thunderbird
:crashes. I've tried disabling my plugins, etc. but this isn't
:helping too much - the crashes are confined to these applications,
:so I'm thinking it's something XUL specific perhaps, or perhaps
:some interaction between e.g. XUL, DBus and the like,
:but I'm really at a loss for what is happening..
:I'm in the process of getting wip/firefox to build, etc
:to test other scenarios, and I'll be testing the official
:packages later, but in the meantime I thought I'd ask if anyone
:had any similar experiences?
:(as I'd like my own builds to work anyway :))
:Thanks in advance,
:- Chris

    Are you using the binary packages from Avalon or did you build
    firefox from /usr/pkgsrc from scratch?

    I'm thinking we may have introduced some structural incompatibility
    between 2.4 and 2.5 that is causing the Q4 binaries built on 2.5
    to fail on 2.4.
