Firefox failure Warp 4

os24u
 Attempting to upgrade Firefox on Warp 4 box fixpak 15 384mb ram. Tried versions:
3.5.10 and 3.6.14

 Firefox loads to the point where outline of PM window exists and titlebar is
displayed. Crashes on display of content inside window. Tried 3.5.10 on ECS 2
machine, ran fine. Warp4 libc is at: libc06b4. Firefox 2 operates normal.

 Appears may be missing something in system. Using native Matrox video driver. Would
that make a difference? Error log from Firefox3:

Why not the latest 10.0.x?

You should install libc065.  The only thing libc06b4 is good for is
Innotek's ft2lib 2.6 beta (which is not useful for Firefox any more, but
is still needed for OpenOffice, unfortunately).

I doubt anyone has tested with the Matrox drivers in a very long time.
If you have EnDIVE enabled, try turning that off.  Is there a reason you
don't want to use SNAP Graphics?

Actually Matrix video driver is broken on many versions of Firefox
(though I'd guess that it would work on 3.5.x, don't remember) due to
using 24 bit graphics instead of 32 bit. Rich added a workaround which
is present in all versions after FF4.
Note that 10.0.x needs a SSE capable processor.

While I really loved my Matrox vid drivers, too many apps had problems
with them, and I eventually bought a license for SNAP, oh, about a
decade ago.  SNAP has its quirks, but many fewer bugs ;)
