I trashed the whole eCS partition and restored an older version where I had about .5GB on the root dir.  Changed ANPM to pentium4.  I then did yum install dooble.
cups was missing so installed it.  Same problem as before, started to open then crashed.  In popuplog.os2:

12-13-2022  18:51:12  SYS2070  PID 00cf  TID 0001  Slot 0089
D:\USR\BIN\DOOBLE.EXE
QT5WEBC->LIBCX0._shmem_close
127

You have an old version of libcx0.dll in the libpath - make sure you've rum 'yum update' and everything is up to date

Yes.  I updated the libcx (pentium4) and now Dooble gui comes up.  I do the authenticate and then enter in the URL www.google.com and Dooble beeps and exits immediately.

Anything new in popuplog.os2? Look in \var\log\app and post the latest trp report. Double check it first in case there is something that needs sanitized in the memory dumps towards the end, unlikely but the odd time a password or such can exist in memory.

Hmm, a sigtrap, perhaps put in there for an OOM (out of memory) condition. Try doing the highmem -c thing again. Also try running the minimum stuff when starting it.
Also try increasing your VIRTUALADDRESSLIMIT in config.sys. Ideally to 3072, if that results in system instabilty, try 2816, or 2560. It controls how much address space you have, bigger is better but sometimes it seems to conflict with hardware or kernel memory. Numbers need to, in hex, end with 00 so the reason for the odd numbers.

3072 crashed with a trap.
I tried 2816 with and without highmem.  Didn't crash the system but Dooble exited as usual.

In a command window: change to the directory where dooble.exe resides (probably \usr\bin). Then execute dooble.exe from the command prompt, and see if an error message appears after dooble has exited again.

Sadly, no.   

Can someone tell why in the crash log under \var\log\app  it says this:

Physical Memory:    3238 mb

(Little mb technically is milli bytes, but I think I get what it's saying - should be MB).
Anyway, this computer has 16 GB of memory, so 3G seems not correct.

32 bit Operating systems such as OS/2 can only address 4GB of ram. The top of the ram is used by PCI devices, video driver etc so generally about 3.5GB give or take. If you are using builtin graphics, you might be able to reduce how much it uses in the BIOS and claim a bit more but 3.2 MB is not unusual, here,
Code: [Select]
D:\>mem -v

Total physical memory:     12,169 MB
Accessible to system:       3,241 MB
Additional (PAE) memory:    8,928 MB

Resident memory:              179 MB
Available virtual memory:   1,896 MB

Available process memory:
  Private low memory:         318 MB
  Private high memory:      2,240 MB
  Shared low memory:          216 MB
  Shared high memory:       1,242 MB
So much the same as you. With ArcaOS, the inaccessible memory can be used for a ram disk, 8GB's here.

I could look at the BIOS to see if I can change something but I'm not sure I can find it and if it will help.  Plus dual booting to Win 10 on this system, so don't want to foul that up.

So is there any way to make this work?  If not, I think I have to give up and if so I would like to use Thunderbird.  I found some instruction for Comcast email, but the settings don't match at all with the Thunderbird I downloaded and installed (45.8.0).  I would appreciate any help as to how to configure it for my Comcast email.

Do you want POP or IMAP mail? POP downloads everything to the client, IMAP uses the copies on the server with the option of dwnloading for off line use. If you are using Windows as well to access, I'd suggest IMAP.

Right now I just use Comcast mail on the Web (hence this whole discussion as to Firefox suddenly not being flashy enough to show the login userid box etc. and the whole Dooble fiasco) so yes I think IMAP is the way to go to use Thunderbird or any other email client the same way.
I just don't see how to configure the OS/2 (eCS etc.) version.

OK, lets see if I can remember how to do it on a new install.
It may suggest setting up an account when first started, tell it later or you'll do it yourself. Forget the exact wording.
I'm using the settings from https://www.xfinity.com/support/articles/email-client-programs-with-xfinity-email which Google said was right for comcast.
Once TB (Thunderbird) has started, go to Tools-->Account Settings which should open the Account Settings Window. At the bottom left there should be a button, Account Actions. Press and  Choose Add Mail Account.
Fill in your name, email address, and password. Click continue. If you're lucky, the rest will be automatic.
Otherwise we'll manually setup the server settings.

...and remember, even with IMAP accounts TB will enable you to d/l everything off of the server if you want speedier access to your emails...so it's not like IMAP limits you to always having to "go out there and retrieve each email".

I've been using Dave's TB release for our Gmail accounts a little over two years now, so far so good (+/- a few little glitches that are all Google specific).
