Description Klaus Steinberger 2004-08-26 03:11:46 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; de-AT; rv:1.7.2)

Description of problem:
The new version from Fedora Core 2 updates segfaults regularly. It is
probably a problem with the mail component of mozilla, as I did not
yet see the segfaults when I did not open the Mail window. If I have
the mail window open mozilla goes away with segfault after a few minutes.
The segfault happens even when I'm currently not in the mail window,
so I suspect it could be related to the checking for new mail.

Also there was no announcement for this mozilla Version on the
fedora-announce-list ?

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open mozilla Mail window
2. Wait some minutes

Actual Results:  segfault

I hope you can use this backtrace, ddd complained about a frozen mouse and
tried to continue mozilla, so mozilla already exited after the segfault and so
the backtrace could not access the process memory.

I now have a better stack backtrace. This backtrace aids my assumption that the
mail part of mozílla is the culprit, as the crash happens in

Comment 3 Matthew Miller 2005-04-26 12:37:02 EDT
Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
Comment 4 John Thacker 2006-10-28 13:33:11 EDT
Closing per lack of response.  Note that FC1 and FC2 are no longer
supported even by Fedora Legacy.  Please install a still supported
version and retest.  If this still occurs on FC3 or FC4 and is a
security issue, please assign to that version and Fedora Legacy.  If it still
occurs on FC5 or FC6, please reopen and assign to the correct version.
