Description Joe Orton 2005-05-16 13:32:08 EDT
Description of problem:
I ran out of disk space in /home.  Firefox hung - it was stuck in a loop trying
to write the cookies file, it seems:

write(24, "# HTTP Cookie File\n# http://www."..., 4096) = -1 ENOSPC (No space
left on device)
write(24, "# HTTP Cookie File\n# http://www."..., 4096) = -1 ENOSPC (No space
left on device)
...etc ad infinitum

firefox-1.0.3-1.3.1

Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!

Distribution against which this bug was reported is no longer supported; could
you please reproduce this with the updated version of the currently supported
distribution (Fedora Core 6, or Fedora 7, or Rawhide)? If this issue turns out
to still be reproducible, please let us know in this bug report.  If after a
month's time we have not heard back from you, we will have to close this bug as
CANTFIX.

Setting status to NEEDINFO, and awaiting information from the reporter.

Thanks in advance.
