Yes, If you tell me what command to use in the terminal and how to capture the info you want.

I also experience this problem, but I run Kubuntu Jaunty. Here's the terminal output: Segmentation fault

That's all it gave me.

I use Hot Potatoes to generate html pages of cloze exercises that contain javascript. I edit the html pages in Kompozer to add links or embedded videos. There was no problem with Kompozer 0.710.

With 0.8 alpha, after editing and saving, when I click the "check" or "hint" button I get a popup with a "back" button rather than the usual "ok" button. Also, the popup refuses to close or go away. 0.710 does not have this problem.

I cannot use 0.710 in Ubuntu because of the crashing. Of course, I can use 0.710 with Wine but I would prefer not to. Any help or suggestions? Or, a fix for 0.8 alpha?

Thanks in advance.

Please send an attachment with a sample file, as well as a step-by-step procedure to reproduce the bug, if you want me to work on it.

I was actually referring to a bug in 0.8a4. I should not have put the comment here. However, I will send a more detailed step-by-step description with sample files in the near future. Thanks.

Kazé suggested a "workaround". For the moment, I need only rename the htm or html file to one with an xhtml extension and Firefox comes up with the normal "ok" popup. Many thanks.
