Does xorg work on netbsd-4? I could try that, but it'll probably be a couple of weekends away. This is my main workstation, and I'm trying not to make it too unavailable. I guess a next step is upgrading to netbsd-5, but I've been putting that off for as long as possible :-) > > Second question - any suggestions on making this work? > > If you rebuild xulrunner with PKG_OPTIONS.xulrunner+=debug in mk.conf > it should print some clues to the problem on stderr.

The first was with no pre-existing ~/.mozilla directory. After this, the xulrunner back trace is: #0 0xb997622f in kill () from /usr/lib/libc.so.12 #1 0xb9a12340 in abort () from /usr/lib/libc.so.12 #2 0xb99d4c06 in __assert13 () from /usr/lib/libc.so.12 #3 0xb9b4c207 in _cairo_hash_table_destroy () from /usr/pkg/lib/libcairo.so.2 #4 0xb9b5c383 in _cairo_scaled_font_map_destroy () from /usr/pkg/lib/libcairo.so.2 #5 0xb9b482b2 in _cairo_font_face_reset_static_data () from /usr/pkg/lib/libcairo.so.2 #6 0xb9b48063 in cairo_debug_reset_static_data () from /usr/pkg/lib/libcairo.so.2 #7 0xba4d3703 in gtk_moz_embed_get_title () from /usr/pkg/lib/xulrunner/libxul.so #8 0xba4dc1f3 in XRE_main () from /usr/pkg/lib/xulrunner/libxul.so #9 0x0804a9e8 in _rtld_setup () #10 0x08049d84 in ___start () #11 0x08049ce7 in _start () When I run firefox a second time, the log file is reasonably different and the back trace is quite different: #0 0xb963a10b in FcPatternObjectPosition () from /usr/pkg/lib/libfontconfig.so.1 #1 0xb963a169 in FcPatternObjectFindElt () from /usr/pkg/lib/libfontconfig.so.1 #2 0xb963b284 in IA__FcPatternRemove () from /usr/pkg/lib/libfontconfig.so.1 #3 0xbb6e10f6 in gfxPangoFontGroup::GetFcFamilies () from /usr/pkg/lib/xulrunner/libxul.so #4 0xbb6e28a8 in gfxPangoFontGroup::NewFontEntry () from /usr/pkg/lib/xulrunner/libxul.so #5 0xbb6e73c0 in gfxPangoFontGroup::MakeFontSet () from /usr/pkg/lib/xulrunner/libxul.so #6 0xbb6e9183 in gfxPangoFontGroup::GetBaseFontSet () from /usr/pkg/lib/xulrunner/libxul.so #7 0xbb6e9d7d in gfxPangoFontGroup::GetBasePangoFont () from /usr/pkg/lib/xulrunner/libxul.so #8 0xbb6ea8a9 in gfxPangoFontGroup::GetFontAt () from /usr/pkg/lib/xulrunner/libxul.so #9 0xbb4f16a5 in non-virtual thunk to nsPrintSession::Release() () from /usr/pkg/lib/xulrunner/libxul.so #10 0x089e1280 in ??

() I've also tried (suggested in the thread you pointed me too) running: /usr/pkg/lib/xulrunner/xulrunner-bin \ /usr/pkg/lib/firefox/application.ini -safe-mode -jsconsole but that gives the same backtrace as the previous back trace. Does the existance of cairo and pango in these traces point to general X/fontish related problems? The only other "gui" type programs I really use are amarok and digikam, and both of these appear to be working fine. Cheers, Simon.
