[Pro] WebYep Site crashes Firefox

This was in my other thread, but elevating it to its own topic.

I put my site live yesterday and now I notice that it crashes firefox as soon as it opens http://www.beanrunnercafe.com. I know it worked in Firefox during testing, although hadn’t checked it there in last week or so and have made some changes since the last time I tested it. My brother checked it on his windows machine and got the same crash.

Site has WebYep elements and is built on box model

Went through Firefox’s troubleshooting steps including following crash report to the Mozilla site and then trying to search for similar signature crash reports. It doesn’t find any but is trying to search for: imgFrame::Optimize

Crash reason shows: EXC_BAD_ACCESS / KERN_INVALID_ADDRESS

Mac Book Pro, OS 10.6.7 FF 4.0.1

Crashed mine also. Almost immediate after / as site loaded (could see site briefly, not sure if entirely loaded).

That’s as far as I get as well. Was thinking it might be WebYep, but I recently did another site with WebYep elements and that seems to open fine. Hope someone might have some ideas as Firefox is pushing everyone to v4.

Hi Jeffrey is it everypage or one specific page?

… as far as I can see - all pages are crashing.

Having had the opportunity to have a look on the page on my VMWare PC Partition using Fox 3.6.17 and it seems to be fine there - no crashes yet.

The bad news? I’m too shorthanded to detect any unusual things within the page codes.

If there is anything I can do to find out I’ll do.

Maybe one quick question: What WY Action-Version do you use?

Cheers

Thomas – used WY3.0. Had uploaded just before Max sent out the 3.1 update. Unfortunately I had been previewing during construction using FF3.6.

Have posted the issue on Mozilla forums and had my host check to see if they could see anything odd (they couldn’t find anything). They also thought it was a FF issue most likely.

So have posted crash reports, etc, on the Mozilla sites, but no answers as of yet, just confirmation that most versions of FF 4.0 or greater crash on both mac and Windows platforms. Have tried all the FF safe mode type starts, new profile accounts, etc. to no avail. Only place I could get it not to crash was in a Virtual Box setup I have with windows 7 – although I have seen it crash on other PCs using Windows 7.

Anyway, just in case anyone might have some insight into this, here is a link to my most recent crash report: https://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/832ceb42-0bf9-4cf2-829f-0817e2110519

Thanks Jeff

PS. Also sent a tech request off to Softpress as well.

And someone on Mozilla posted this link saying this identifies the bug (I have no clue how to read it or if he just meant that it was reported to Mozilla): https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=619048#c2

So someone at the bugzilla site showed a link to the favicon.ico I used. I removed the favicon from the pages and the site now appears to load just fine. Strange??

It’s possible that depending on how the favicon was referenced in the
code it might cause issues in some browsers according to this
article http://www.w3.org/2005/10/howto-favicon. I’ve used method 1
on several occasions without issue. For what it’s worth.

argnnn - f****'n pain. Yes, I had this discussion with Max during the Beta-Testings and he recommended me to do favicon with this method:

I just forgot about this, furthermore it was a totally different reason why we had this discussion.

Sorry - I’m not getting younger (and should record those things for future use)

Katie from SoftPress tech support suggested using this online site to make favicons and the one I made there seems to be working: http://www.favicon.cc/

Hi Jeffrey ,
When looking at the favicon in Safari I can see the server is returning an error (“Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 500 (Internal Server Error)”);
http://www.beanrunnercafe.com/Resources/favicon.ico

This suggests either the file is corrupt or that the server doesn’t know how to handle the .ico file format. If you are using an Apache server you can easily add the file format to your htaccess file;

Regards,
Tim.
