See the History of this Talk page for what a failed symbol download looks like.
Question: with windbg, if I use a local path like is listed in this example, with a trailing "\", it doesn't work, but removing it works. Is this a typo?
Linux fetch-symbols.py not working ?
I downloaded fetch-symbols.py and it silently failed for my nightly build Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.9.3a2pre) Gecko/20100218 Minefield/3.7a1pre ID:20100218030721. It turns out it's getting a
404 File Not Found error retrieving http://symbols.mozilla.org/firefox/f...21-symbols.txt . I don't know if this is supposed to exist, but I filed
bug 547324 about the silent failure.
Symbol server for Windows 64bit builds?
It appears http://symbols.mozilla.org/firefox only works with 32bit builds. But we have nightly builds for win64 now.
