Issues found in pre-release Google Breakpad client in Camino

  • Client sometimes won't appear after a crash (try testcase in this bug, URL/comment 0 in this bug) - Bug 490670
    • So far does seem to write a dump in spite of not appearing
    • cl has also reproduced this on PPC
    • smorgan can repro reliably on first crash after reboot
  • Client often "just vanishes" after appearing (while filling out info, switching apps to get info, etc.) - Bug 488727
  • Client has no indication of sending/success (did my report get sent?), made worse by the random vanishing)
    • Apple and Mozilla both display progress spinners while sending and don't simply vanish
  • Clicking on the Dock icon when the app is not frontmost doesn't focus the reporter window - issue 312
  • Client doesn't fire with Rosetta?
  • Need about:crashes / some easy, visible way to find sent report ID(s) - Bug 488949
  • Make sure the following are reported, once Socorro support is in:
    • URL - Bug 490657
    • user comments
      • with UTF-8 support
      • text field should accept no more characters than will be stored
    • ObjC exception info
    • Time since the last crash
    • Console scraping - Bug 488618
  • Loaded libraries versions are incorrect
    • All have a 0. prepended to the actual or incorrect version, e.g. AppKit 0.949.43.0 instead of 949.43 (CFBundleVersion)
    • Binaries with otherwise-correct versions are setting DYLIB_COMPATIBILITY_VERSION and DYLIB_CURRENT_VERSION; see, e.g., Sparkle
    • Some have blatantly incorrect versions, e.g.
      • Flash 0.0.0.0 instead of 1.0.4f872 (CFBundleVersion; alas, the useful version number is CFBundleShortVersionString, 10.0.22.87)
      • Growl 0.1.0.0 instead of 1.1.4 (CFBundleVersion)
      • SharedMenusCocoa 0.1.0.0 instead of 0.0.3 (CFBundleVersion)
      • Camino [blank] instead of 2009.04.25 (CFBundleVersion)
    • Filed issue 321 to cover the blank/0.0.0.0 case
  • Breakpad issue 309 (can't copy/paste)
  • Big gap between "title" and "explanatory text"
  • AppName menu/Hide menuitem/Dock label needs to be other than "crash_report_sender" - Bug 488861
    • issue 313 filed to make this less hacky
    • Need a way to resend a crash report in case of failure - Bug 515861
