Description Olivier Castan 2003-10-21 07:24:42 UTC
Go to and click on the upper right button "Sign In", you
get a blank page and the Javascript console displays (built with either mozilla
1.4 or 1.5) :

uncaught exception: [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x80500001
[nsIDOMWindowInternal.unescape]"  nsresult: "0x80500001 (<unknown>)"  location:
"JS frame ::
:: GetCookie :: line 1"  data: no]

Same URL works fine with Mozilla (1.4 and 1.5) and Epiphany on PPC, and with
Galeon 1.3.9 on x86.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:

Portage 2.0.49-r13 (default-ppc-1.4, gcc-3.2.3, glibc-2.2.5-r4,2.3.2-r1,

Comment 1 Alastair Tse (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-10-28 03:19:27 UTC
seems ppc specific. can't produce with galeon 1.3.9 and mozilla 1.4 on x86.

does this happen with mozilla?
Comment 2 Luca Barbato gentoo-dev 2003-10-28 06:30:47 UTC
I cannot reproduce it here.
the end location is:

my suggestion anyway::
Comment 3 Olivier Castan 2003-10-28 13:20:16 UTC
1. Yes it's PPC specific
2. No, doesn't happen with Mozilla or Epiphany
3. That's not the only site with this problem

I'll test with 1.3.10 as soon I've built it
Comment 4 Olivier Castan 2003-10-30 06:29:35 UTC
Still broken with Galeon 1.3.10 on PPC. Another problem involving javascript
in Galeon 1.3.9 and 1.3.10 on PPC : ;-)
Some values of the form are updated with some javascript. When I submit,
the query sent is :
=> That's an empty query and I receive any bug for any program...
Comment 5 Lars Weiler (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-02-15 18:31:31 UTC
I recently updated galeon to 1.3.12 on mozilla-1.6 and now it seems to work.

Please test and if this works, we will mask both stable on ppc.
Comment 6 Olivier Castan 2004-02-17 07:00:15 UTC
I wasn't using Galeon anymore, but I emerged it and tested it both on gnome and msn websites : everything seems to work fine...
Comment 7 Lars Weiler (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-04-02 21:43:02 UTC
Finally closing this bug.
Comment 8 Lars Weiler (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-04-02 21:50:58 UTC
Now!  Closing (when bugzilla let me)
