SeaMonkey Crashfest


Hello guys,

I was trying out the newest edition of Grafpup over the weekend on my very old and low end PII/333 box (384 MB RAM, TNT 2) and it worked very well, I may use it permanently on it. The only thing that I had problems with was the totally unusable SeaMonkey browser that's included. Not only was it several releases behind the times - that wouldn't have been so bad, although since this version of GP dates to 24 September 2007 I would have expected something more up-to-date - but most annoyingly, it crashed all the time. I had to look up some information real quick but it was extremely difficult since SM just wouldn't run. Never had this kind of problem with any software on any system, and never had something like that happen with a Mozilla browser. Oh well.

No - it doesn't date to 24 September, it dates to 2 June - I do find it rather annoying that the dates in Nathan's new repository show up wrong
I can't comment on the stability, as I tried the Opera version, but I am surprised - I would have thought enough people used the Seamonkey version for that to be a real issue. Do you have Flash 9 installed? People say it can cause all sorts of problems, even when they don't use sites with Flash.

I just booted straight from the CD as I downloaded/burned it, don't know if came with Flash or not. It doesn't really matter because I'll install FF later anyway. But maybe one of the developers can look into it and see if this was a freak occurrence on my machine, or if there's something wrong with the ISO.

I have been using the June release of GP since it was posted on three different machines. I have had no problems with Seamonkey at all. You might rename the /home/<user>/.mozilla directory and start with a new profile and see if that helps.

I guess I could do that, but even if it helps, I think it's not something one should have to do. Keep in mind that I am not talking about an installation on my machine here, but about a live CD freshly created from the official ISO. It was my first run.

Tried it again yesterday - same behaviour. Interestingly, as bare-bones as it is, the Dillo browser just as unstable for me.

That sounds really dodgy - I've never seen any instability whatever in Dillo. Would you say you've been trying to use the same sites and that other people are unlikely to have used them? Or is it a variety of sites, and other people are likely to have used them?
