My guess is that attila06's crash concerns locale.library too. Locale is a special case as it is not opened with all the other OS libs, which do exit gracefully without a crash on failure. In...

Yes, so I would still call this a bug in IBrowse. I did mess with the library initialisation for IBrowse 2.5, "improving" and optimising it to work better for OS3 and OS4, but I probably should have...

@Firestone

If 2.4 works, but 2.5 versions do not, on the same system, obviously I'm more inclined to think there is an issue in IBrowse that needs sorting.

Can you retry with SnoopDos, but make...

Try 2.5 (https://www.ibrowse-dev.net/download.php?file=IBrowse2.5-020%2B.lha) instead. I have a suspicion where the problem lies if 2.5 works and 2.5.1 doesn't.

Only the .ilbm should be used in the startup window in the 68k version. Did you install the 32 or 256 colour image set? (latter does require a PNG datatype)

Correct. AmiSSL isn't the issue as the crash happens before it is touched.

How about trying to load info/ibrowse-logo.ilbm, located in the IBrowse drawer, using Multiview?

There is extra overhead using the datatypes system and generally you would only want to use external JPEG and PNG if you are running on MorphOS or a PPC card with WarpOS.

No AMMX stuff, if that's what you mean. The 68080 is just faster than a 68060 and probably the missing 64-bit math instructions on the 68060 bring an extra speed boost for SSL on a 68080 (as long as...
