From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041216 Firefox/1.0 Fedora/1.0-6
Description of problem:
Was looking at some snooker stuff and went to look at a results page
Firefox crashed - then did it again when I attempted to open the page again after reloading firefox.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open link shown above.
Link worked OK for me with firefox-1.0-6...
It may be of signficance - i'm blocking any cookies prompted, and have
the cookie settings as:
Allow sites to set cookies, for the originating site only, and ask
I block everything except sites I must access that require it.
The only messages i'm getting hen run from the console are.
[carlos@coeus ~] firefox --gtk-debug
INTERNAL ERROR on Browser End: Could not read ack from child process
System error?:: Resource temporarily unavailable
There isn't a firefox-debug package, so i'm lost on how to get more
This happens _every_ time I try to access the page.
What java plugin and version do you have installed? I don't have a java plugin,
and it doesn't crash for me.
Summary: Me too.
I am running
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.6)
on a Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 system and Firefox crashes way to much for me too.
$ uname -a
Linux trillian.localdomain 2.4.21-27.0.2.ELsmp #1 SMP
Wed Jan 12 23:35:44 EST 2005 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
The plugin directory I have looks like this:
[/usr/local/mozilla/firefox-installer/plugins]$ ls -l
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Mar 29 07:35 HIDE
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 2363 Mar 25 00:51 ShockwaveFlash.class
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 765852 Mar 25 00:51 libflashplayer.so
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 58 Mar 25 00:43 libjavaplugin_oji.so ->
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 18840 Mar 17 07:29 libnullplugin.so
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 40 Mar 24 18:08 nphelix.so ->
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 41 Mar 24 18:08 nphelix.xpt ->
When I click on the link (shown earlier)
it crashes everytime for me as well (but lots of links crash like that).
Konqueror does not crash on this link.
Firefox is crashing with Flash plugin installed. I used Wtogami flash build to
get that result.
Even with rebuilt version, I got the crashing result while I didn't have that
problem with FC3.(In reply to comment #3)
Please add the following line to the firefox executable script uner /usr/bin
(I found a report on the web, and someone had tracked the problem back to the
fact that firefox was running on xorg 6.8.1 with, I believe but please check,
composite extension enabled.)
