Description Ian Pilcher 2013-01-18 13:53:42 EST
Description of problem:
When starting Firefox with the "default" profile, the main window appears and immediately disappears.  Starting in a terminal shows:

(firefox:7272): Gdk-CRITICAL **: gdk_keymap_have_bidi_layouts: assertion `GDK_IS_KEYMAP (keymap)' failed

(firefox:7272): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: cannot register existing type `GdkKeymap'

(firefox:7272): GLib-CRITICAL **: g_once_init_leave: assertion `result != 0' failed

(firefox:7272): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_type_register_static: assertion `parent_type > 0' failed

(firefox:7272): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_object_new: assertion `G_TYPE_IS_OBJECT (object_type)' failed

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. firefox -P default
Actual results:
Assertion fails.  Crash.

Expected results:
No crash.

Additional info:
Other profiles work; there's something about my default profile that is causing the crash.  (Note that this just started happening; I did not update Firefox.)

Also, starting Firefox with "/usr/lib64/firefox/firefox -P default" works, so the launcher script seems to be involved somehow.

I guess you're hitting Bug 895197 so try to disable Java (icedtea) and try again.

I had already disabled the Java plugin (Tools -> Add-ons).  I can't uninstall the package, because I need javaws.

icedtea-web-1.3.1-3.fc18 seems to fix.
