If you can find an answer for this, write
Netscape; they would love to know as well!
Fortunately, this bug is relatively rare.
This is a fairly typical 'crash' and of no
real concern. I say no concern because there
is nothing you can do to prevent this. My
believe is agents of Bill Gates pulled a
Watergate type burglary and installed a
FUBAR snippet into Mozilla based on a
random number generator.
You will find this gitch with midi files as
well. Similar type message pops up. Seems to
be a conflict or corruption in a cache document.
I can duplicate this error, when it happens and
after closing Mozilla, by clearing my cache then
accessing the same site (midi) again. This error
will pop up everytime.
This technique is mentioned for a reason. Certain
audio/visual errors will become memory resident
in your cpu and cannot be flushed easily. This
behavior is almost like a TSR, Terminate and Stay
Only one cure I have found, which is rather annoying,
to clear your RAM of this problem. Close Mozilla,
clean your cache, do a warm reboot. Note dumping
your memory cache in Mozilla has no effect at all.
This problem resides in your CPU/RAM and cannot be
cleared without a warm reboot.
This is not *always* the case with every page
fault, but if you cannot clear this problem,
try closing all, warm reboot.
There is an interesting bug in Mozilla 4.7 which
you can 'call' at will. If you are silly enough
to leave Java turned on in your preferences.
Find a midi anywhere on our net, with Java on,
click on this midi file. You will see Java start,
Java crash, then see your midi load as normal.
* java is evil *
However, you should know I have only tested this
with Mozilla 4.7 under Win98 second edition. Who
knows on these things?
Best approach is to experiment, discover a way
to at least clear this page fault error, then
move on with hopes Bill Gate's installed random
FUBAR snippet in Mozilla's programming, doesn't
nail you again anytime soon.
