Description Kai Engert (:kaie) 2013-11-20 14:57:30 EST
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1032770 +++

When using NSS shared DB with Mozilla (actived by setting environment variable NSS_DEFAULT_DB_TYPE=sql), memory allocators are being mixed in system sqlite code, and we crash (or we malfunction).

This is fixed upstream in Mozilla 28, using a makefile patch.

I propose to pick up the patch in RHEL's ESR24.

This request was not resolved in time for the current release.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if still desired, for consideration in
the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
