#6740 closed defect (wontfix)

Old Firefox releases and dojo 1.1.1 (and probably below)

Reported by: guest Owned by: anonymous
Priority: high Milestone:
Component: General Version: 1.1.0
Keywords: dojo.parser Cc: [email protected]
Blocked By: Blocking:


Too much recursion is displayed by pretty old Firefoxes (tested 1.0.8) -- the script execution is aborted and the error console shows:

Error: too much recursion Source file: Row: 21

In my current project I use dojo in the most current version 1.1.1 (updated from 1.1.0 in the hope to have the error fixed). Thus this error also occurs on

I have tried to debug a bit more, but not being very familiar with what parser.parse() is doing I could not really find the problem. The Error is shown in the _findMethod routine and some of the local variables contain error objects indicating an error "value has no properties in chrome://venkman/content/venkman-records.js". Maybe there is some namespace trouble.

Of course this should be an item for Firefox, and it actually is solved in newer Firefoxes (at least with 2.x versions it seems to be fixed) -- but my users (and probably not only these) use older versions, especially working from administered machines in some PC pool.

Thank you for your attention,

Given that Mozilla no longer supports Firefox versions under 2.0, we do not support Firefox 1.0 any more. I think from the security aspect alone, it is highly recommended that 1.0 is not used.

Sorry, closing the bug since Dojo and Mozilla do not support Firefox 1.0 any more.
