Comment 1 Jan "Yenya" Kasprzak 2005-06-15 05:19:02 EDT
I have observed a similar behaviour (both from Mozilla and Galeon), when
clicking to my MRTG graphs. When I click to


the page is displayed OK, but when I click to any of the graphs, the browser
crashes. I've tried to run mozilla under GDB, and got a similar trace - SIGSEGV
somewhere in libimglib2.so. Downgrade to mozilla binaries from FC3 updates makes
this problem disappear. My system is also x86_64.
Comment 2 T 2005-06-17 11:49:38 EDT
same here: fresh FC4 x86_64 install

mozilla segfaults on the 2nd or 3rd page visited, or on reload, independent of
page content. No plugins or add-ons.

the gdb backtrace is the same as above, segfault happens somewhere in  libimglib2.so
0x00002aaab1dcff0e in NSGetModule () from

this makes the 64 bit version of mozilla useless

I've been bitten by this as well. It's the same upstream bug as:

I've attached a backported patch.
Comment 5 Christopher Aillon 2005-06-28 13:40:17 EDT
Thanks for tracking this down.  I'll add the patch to FC4 and rawhide soon.

*** Bug 160856 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Comment 7 Dams 2005-07-11 15:45:06 EDT
Chris, this bug is impacting all mozilla, epiphany and galeon.
Comment 8 Christian Iseli 2007-01-22 06:22:18 EST
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 ?

Comment 9 Jan "Yenya" Kasprzak 2007-01-22 06:56:28 EST
In FC6/i386 and x86_64, Galeon works correctly when viewing
http://www.linux.cz/stats/mrtg-rrd/ and
- so I think the bug has been fixed since then.
Comment 10 T 2007-01-22 11:09:48 EST
the bug was fixed a long time ago with one of the mozilla updates in FC4.
