Description Nicholas Miell 2004-09-08 23:12:22 UTC
There's sizeof(int) verses sizeof(void*) problem in Firefox's
autocomplete implementation that causes frequent crashes anytime
you're  typing in autocomplete-enabled input boxes on a 64bit platform.

Upstream has it fixed, but it's not in 0.9.3.

Here's the patch.

upstream, for comparison:

Comment 4 Warren Togami 2004-09-20 05:51:36 UTC
Is this fixed in our 0.10 (PR) firefox package?

Comment 5 Nicholas Miell 2004-09-20 07:42:02 UTC
AFAICT, your 0.10 (PR) package isn't available to the public.

However, if it's based on firefox-1.0PR-source.tar.bz2, then, yes,
it's fixed.

Comment 6 Warren Togami 2004-09-20 10:17:44 UTC
Should be in rawhide soon.
