Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2005-05-10 08:46:10 UTC
Running the 32-bit version of mozilla on the same machine does not produce the
same problem, so it looks like this might be x86_64-specific.

Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2005-05-10 14:55:18 UTC
Changing to fc4test3, since that's what it actually is I have got installed.

Comment 3 Adam Pribyl 2005-06-25 07:52:45 UTC
I can not reproduce your segfault however I found this because I am getting 100%
reproducably segfault when I try to download gqradio rpm archiv from sourceforge:

- http://gqmpeg.sourceforge.net/radio.html
- click - gqradio-1.9.2-1.i386.rpm
- choose any mirrow and click on it

This is only one ocassion I got to repeat before I got upset and tried Firefox -
FF works ok, however mozilla seems to produce segmentation fault fairly often.

pure FC4 install, x86_64, M1.7.8-2

Comment 4 Adam Pribyl 2005-06-25 07:54:42 UTC
..it crashes again when reloading this bug... horrible.

Comment 5 Christian Iseli 2007-01-22 11:53:42 UTC
This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?

I can't reproduce the problem I originally reported.
