3.1.2 won't launch under OS 10.4.11

Reported by: khindall Owned by: dkocher
Priority: high Milestone:
Component: core Version: 3.1.2
Severity: critical Keywords: launch failure 10.4.11
Cc: Architecture:


Both I and one other person in the forum who is running 10.4.11 cannot run 3.1.2. When double-clicked (or clicked once in the Dock), it bounces a couple of times in the Dock and then, nothing.

3.1.1 works fine.

I am also experiencing problems, though for me it doesn't even launch in the first place. I'm running 10.4.11 on a G5 iMac. I have tried all versions from 3.1.2 back to 2.8.2. Here is what each one did:

2.8.2 - Works correctly. 2.8.4, 3.0b1, 3.0b2 - Opens and the browser window comes up, but I cannot open a connection or even close the browser. If preferences are present, the window will not come up, and cannot be opened. 3.0, 3.0.1, 3.0.2, 3.0.1, 3.1, 3.1.1, 3.1.2 - Won't even open at all.

However, I should mention that 3.1.2 works just fine on my friend's Powerbook G4, running 10.4.11 as well.

When I try to post the console output, the site tells me it's potential spam and won't let me commit. Any way around that?

Send it to email to Also check this is not a duplicate of #1601 and you have the latest Java Update installed available from Software Update.

Gah, I had already figured out my Java installation was weird and updated it (though I had to do it manually, since Software Update doesn't tell me about it), but I did not think about WindowDragon. Putting Cyberduck on the exclude list makes it work just fine.

Sorry for wasting your time and mine...
