User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050719 Fedora/1.7.10-1.5.1
Description of problem:
As shown in the URL above, firefox displays virtually no
text. A font appears to be missing. Running
"rpm -e firefox; rm -fr ~/.mozilla/firefox; yum -y install firefox"
does not fix this. There are no error messages and /var/log
files show no clues. (On top of this, mozilla is crashing frequently).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run firefox.
Please see here for a workaround:
We just updated the Firefox version in Fedora/development from 2.0 to a 3.0
pre-release version, which improves performance, memory usage, and fixes many
bugs and crashes.
Closing as CANTFIX since we aren't fixing bugs filed against 2.0 now that 3.0 is
in. If this bug is still present in rawhide using a Firefox 3.0 version, please
re-open this bug.
Thanks and Happy Holidays
