From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1)
Description of problem:
Mozilla crashes when I try to access this URL:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.try to access the aforementioned website URL
Actual Results: mozilla crashes
Expected Results: mozilla should be more robust, it should not die
when going to certain websites
The same happens if I try to access http://www.gnu.org
It also crashes on http://www.debian.org
This is too much. It seems like a Microsoft release of Mozilla.
This problem is arises after upgrading from RH9 to Fedora. It seems
the problem is Mozilla trying to use a font that no longer exists.
See bug 109334 for a workaround.
I created a simlink to the new font and now it works..
None of these pages cause any problems on either of the Fedora
machines (both of which were RedHat 9 machines and were upgraded) that
I use. Could you have a corrupt font installed?
The font that Mozilla was trying to use didn't existed.
The symlink to the new font solved the problem with the webpages I was
trying to watch but. The address of the original bug. Still crashes
Mozilla. I guess it's another font.
Seems the upgrade forgot to do something...
I updated mozilla to version 1.4.1-18 and this version of mozilla
still crashes on this URL.
This does work in my 1.6b trunk build, but crashes my 1.4.1 build. So
it's been fixed upstream at some point.
My wife came across another URL that crashes mozilla:
The upstream fix mentioned in comment #7, will Fedora Core see this
fix in an updated mozilla anytime soon?
What exactly is on these web sites that causes mozilla to crash?
*** Bug 112442 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Ah! Now that I created symlinks to the appropriate japanese fonts
things work on the gnu site, the debian site, and the google errors I
reported in bug 112442. And the cartoon network site never seemed to
cause a problem. However
still crashes mozilla, and my strace dump doesn't even contain the
word "font". Looks like this is another bug.
Everyone who has these mozilla crashes, please test mozilla-1.6-0 from
rawhide on your FC1 systems and report back if that fixes the problem
I can only find the source RPM, but I'll give it a try.
Ok. I installed Mozilla 1.6 from rawhide. Now it doesn't crash on any
of the pages. Much faster too. The only problem I had to install with
rpm -Uvh --nodeps *.rpm
because it complained of Epiphany needing it.
Now Epiphany doesn't work...
Should I download Epiphany from Rawhide too?...
Closing this as rawhide, since we've had confirmation in comment 13
