Summary0014748: elinks crashes on startup with an ECMASCRIPT error
DescriptionWhen pointed to any URL, even a page that uses no javascript, elinks displays the following error and hangs:

An error occurred while running a Spidermonkey ECMAScript
script:

A client script raised the following error:

(void 0) is not a function
Steps To ReproduceStart elinks
point it at a URL
see error
Additional InformationOddly, ecmascript is turned off in /etc/elinks.conf and in ~/.elinks/elinks.conf, so why does it even try?

Also, the version of js is 1.8.5-20.el7.x86_64
TagsNo tags attached.

confirmed, probably related to https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1446545, which requires a rebuild of elinks

can someone with an access to a RHEL7 machine test if that's a rebuild issue or upstream ?

confirmed that a quick and dirty rpm --rebuild elinks downloaded from http://vault.centos.org/7.5.1804/os/Source/SPackages/elinks-0.12-0.37.pre6.el7.src.rpm fixes the error. ymmv

This is still happening with elinks-0.12-0.37.pre6.el7.x86_64 running on centos-release-7-5.1804.el7.centos.2.x86_64.
elinks does not crash though but display an error dialog with mentioned error message.

elinks-0.12-0.37.pre6.el7.0.1.src.rpm seems to have fixed it.
