Description Tom Laudeman 2004-09-07 13:31:08 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040616

Description of problem:
In Mozilla 1.7, at Google enter a search string and submit the form
with control-enter instead of enter. X windows crashed 4 out or 5
tries. The Mozilla team says this is an issue with FC2, since it works
fine with RH8. tail Xorg.0.log.old says:
Fatal server error:
Caught signal 11.  Server aborting

yum updates are current.

Linux xxx.yyy.virginia.edu 2.6.8-1.521smp #1 SMP Mon Aug 16 09:25:06
EDT 2004 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
X 11 6.7.0-5

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to Google
2. Enter the search string    BMW "series-2"
3. Press control-enter.
4. X crashes, and you are returned to the Fedora login screen.
5. On the 5th try, Mozilla wouldn't restart from the taskbar icon.
Dunno why, but I'm guessing the crash corrupted something.

Actual Results:  X crashes, instantly, no warning, nothing helpful in
the log file.

Expected Results:  The form is submitted.

Additional info:

I first submitted a but to the Mozilla team.
The Mozilla team responded:

Please file a bug on Fedora Core 2, specifically on the X version it
This is not a problem with RedHat 8, for instance, with 1.7 or current

Comment 5 Tom Laudeman 2004-09-09 13:06:21 UTC
The machine is a nearly new Dell Precision 650. The monitor is a Dell
flat screen. It probably doesn't matter, but I'm using the standard
video connection, not the digital connector.

Comment 6 Tom Laudeman 2004-09-09 21:24:55 UTC
Starting just a few minutes ago, ANY Google search crashes X, even if
the "Google search" button is clicked instead of using enter or
control-enter. The Google page has some CSS/JavaScript. Forms on other
sites work normally.

*** This is an automated comment update ***

The X11 implementation included with Fedora Core 2 and 3, is "X.Org X11"
provided by the X.Org project located at "http://www.x.org".  XFree86 is no
longer included in Fedora Core.  To ensure faster review and investigation
of X related Fedora Core bug reports, please be sure to file the bug against
the correct component of "xorg-x11" in the future.  Thanks in advance.

Reassigning several bugs from XFree86 component to proper xorg-x11
component ...

Comment 9 Mike A. Harris 2005-04-15 11:01:14 UTC
