I noticed that but thought I'd bitched enough for one day. :) Yes, with a single page (no multiple tabs) the window title updates as expected. But once you start opening multiple tabs, the window title seems to get set to the title from the last tab or page opened. Then it didn't matter if I close that tab, the window title stays the same. if I click on links in a remaining tab, no change to the title. If I type a new location in the location bar, though, the title will update. And the same if I open a new tab.

If you haven't already, can I suggest that you grab diegel's companion-pango (about two threads down) ? It makes a significant difference.

I've tried 3.0.19 again, this time on a fresh install on Octane, got a core dump.
I have never run or installed 2.x or any other firefox prior to this.

It had failed on the tezro too, which did run 2.x before.

There is something seriously wrong with your setup. I have a ten-year-old Irix installation, try just about every beta that comes off the server, compile lots of stuff myself with little skill and close to no knowledge, and this FF3 works for me on hardware similar to yours.

I have more problems than some people see but it does work. So ..... something is absolutely not correct at your house. Do you use any other nekoware ?

It's exactly the same. Probably you have same strange Xserver settings. My /var/X11/xdm/Xservers look like this:

Code: Select all

:0 secure /usr/bin/X11/X -nobitscale -c -class TrueColor -depth 24 -solidroot sgilightblue -cursorFG red -cursorBG white

Oh, I see the issue.

When I call firefox-bin directly it works, when I use the wrapper (/usr/nekoware/lib/firefox-3.0.19/firefox, which itself calls run-mozilla.sh) it fails.
Would this indicate an issue with setrlimits or such? I haven't looked at the wrapper script, but I assume it interferes with something.

Okay, I found out what the issue was; precisely.

With the environment variable _RLDN32_LIST=libOMPdlor.so:libOMPmaster.so:libOMPcodec.so::libXext.so:libX1.so:libCio.so:libC.so:DEFAULT
firefox segfaults; when I unset it, it works great. This behavior is new with firefox3 (on irix).

I let you meditate on this, but this was the root cause of my issue.

This variable is set by the OpenGL multipipe wrapper.

Is there anyone here running this FF 3.0.19 build who uses Yahoo Mail? Yahoo has just
updated its mail service; the new 'basic' layout is a total mess on Seamonkey 1.1.19 and
FF 2.0.0.22pre, with all sorts of functionality broken (can't even copy/paste messages
from the window like I used to). Looks ok on a PC of course. Anyway, I was pondering
trying this FF3 build on my Fuel to see if it helps at all, but if someone here is a Yahoo
user then I'd be most grateful for any info/comment.

Cheers! :)

Yes, but deferring the new layout (on all systems) as long as possible!

But if it's not too late when I can get a VPN connection to finish working I'll fire up the Fuel to have a look.
Fuel; Indigo2; Inspiron 531 WinXP/Win10/debian-buster; Inspiron 4100 debian-buster; RiscPC Kinetic/448MB/RISCOS4.39; RPi B/256MB RISCOS5.23; RPi2 Raspbian-buster; A5000/33MHz/FPA11/8MB/RISCOS3.11; A540/25MHz/FPA10/16MB/RISCOS3.11 or RISCiX1.21

Alas eventually the switchover is forced upon you.

Ok thanks!!

As I type I'm doing a clone backup of my Fuel, prior to installing the FF3 update package, see what happens.
If it can't handle Yahoo Mail, well... I don't know. Mail is *the* main thing I do on my SGI. Using winblows for
email?? Yuk...

In Seamonkey/FF2, faults in the layout include missing buttons and button text in the wrong place, date
column always too far to the right out of view, cannot highlight text, etc.

Here's hoping FF3 can help...

Ian.
