Description Michel Normand 2017-08-30 12:28:02 UTC
firefox-55.0.2-3.fc26 coredump on ppc64le in fc26 Updates

problem identified while running openQA test for Fedora Updates fc26
the "server_cockpit_default" test is failing when trying to start firefox.

I am able to recreate the problem on a ppc64le guest trying to start firefox.
coredumpctl is reporting two failures (1)
The gdb subcommand is unable to access the dump file as per (2) & (3)
But is reporting the crash on "mozilla::ipc::MessageChannel::OnChannelErrorFromLink"

Comment 1 Michel Normand 2017-08-30 13:12:23 UTC
note that if I disable the Fedora Update repository and so install the GA level (firefox 54.0.2) on a new fc26 ppc64le guest then there is no such crash.

So problem is related to new firefox 55 version as per above description.

Created attachment 1320074 [details]
firefox coredump backtrace via gdb

I am able to extract the firefox backtrace after install of gdb and firefox debuginfo packages; as detailed in attached log file.

Comment 3 Michel Normand 2017-10-19 11:28:15 UTC
Still same problem with update of last firefox-56.0.5.fc26 on fc26 release
but also on f27 as per last openQA test:


Comment 4 Michel Normand 2018-02-14 13:00:08 UTC
I assume still same problem on Rawhide (f28) compose 20180204 firefox-58.0-4
as per openqa test 

But reports this bug as duplicate bug#1498561 used for investigation.
