Windows 7: Minefield Nightly build crashes

Thanks, again, Blongs.

An interesting side note when Minefield crashes with "methodjit.content" set to "true": the notification area of my taskbar is wiped out - gone. I'll put up a screenshot in a moment.

EDIT: Unfortunately, it's not reliably repeatable. Next time it happens though, I'll present it.

After a update or something(i think 3.06), i can't get minefield to work anymore?

Everytime i start it crashes..
Normal mozzilla works right.

Hi, runeazn, welcome to the Seven Forums!

Read through this thread and you'll discover the work-around necessary to run Minefield.

In a nut-shell, start Minefield in safe mode, open about:config and set the entry "javascript.options.methodjit.content" to "False" and you'll be good to go.

I noticed updating from 4.0b7 to 4.0b8 that the setting for "javascript.options.methodjit.content" remained to "False". So no issues here. GL

Yep. Entry settings in about:config are attached to a profile. If you update, or even uninstall and reinstall, without changing or deleting profiles, the settings carry over.

This seems to me to be a lesson in "don't upgrade" go and download each nightly build so as to be able to revert.

To revert: Index of /pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly
Find the x64 build in the "2010-MM-DD-mozilla-central" Directory
I was having the same problem, this is what worked for me.

go into about:config (start minefield in safe mode if necc.)

change these lines to false

javascript.options.methodjit.content
javascript.options.methodjit.chrome

Restart minefield in normal mode and all should be ok

This is been pissing me off to no end since I first discovered the Minefield 64bit builds a couple of weeks ago.

Thank you, Blangs, for the fix....

You can also go with the latest Trace Monkey builds or have a look here. No need to edit about:config.

The nightly x64 has had the bug fix merged. Y'all can return your "javascript.options.mothodjit" about:config entries to default (I set both to true).

EDIT: After some testing, I recommend keeping both entries to their default settings which would be:
"javascript.options.methodjit.content" = true
"javascript.options.methodjit.chrome" = false

The latter setting doesn't crash FF x64 if set to "true," but there are a few quirks when it is.
