Important note:
The Mac OSX version of Pale Moon is still very much in development. Your assistance in bringing this build to fruition is greatly appreciated, but you can expect there to be bugs and problems for a while yet!

Any specific bugs you find that don't have their own topic yet: please make a new topic; one bug per topic please to keep things organized.

Please also note that these builds are currently created by Sugis and Moonchild will likely not be able to provide insight or assistance due to lack of Mac hardware and OS/build knowledge for Mac.

Kernel Panic on this page

Unread postby jackoverfull » Sun, 01 Apr 2018, 11:39

Well, just joined after a couple of months with no issue and I discover a problem! Such is life…

Anyway, I get a Kernel Panic when I visit the following page using sugis's build:

https://www.ibs.it/carta-del-docente?ut ... %20Docente

The panic also happens using Firefox 48.0.2, it doesn't happen using Chromium.

I'm using the latest update of Snow Leopard.

A kernel panic, is likely failing hardware, or having poorly contacting RAM or card pins, for that, you need to reseat the RAM and the cards on the motherboard.

In some cases, it's just a buggy video driver, try with hardware acceleration disabled, temporarily. (CPU-mode)

I beg to disagree: Gecko has had a number of bugs over the years that caused KPs under certain conditions (involving acceleration, as you just noted, or other things, such as Flash). Tried disabling acceleration, no change, disabled Flash, still no change BUT now the page doesn't causes a panic in firefox anymore (it does on Pale Moon).

This is the relevant bit in my panic log, I've found a number of others having similar issues on similar configurations but no solution so far:

Code: Select all

panic(cpu 0 caller 0x2abf6a): Kernel trap at 0x00982ad9, type 14=page fault, registers:

Just tried on the other Mac with Snow Leopard I have access to, no issue there.

This mac is a MacBook Pro 2,2.

I'm able to visit that site with no problems. It might be specific to your machine, which would at least suggest it might be a hardware or driver problem.

Shut down the Mac, reseat the RAM and try again.
