Description of problem:
With the new Firefox 1.0.7 update for FC4, I'm getting Firefox crashing
randomly.  Running inside gdb, I'm getting the following backtrace all the time:

(gdb) bt

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

Right now I can reproduce it whenever I try to submit an attachment to gnome
bugzilla, but it has been crashing at other times too.

Additional info:

With the same update, I and a friend of mine have been observing problems with
font selection too, but that probably is another problem.

Another backtrace, crashing consistently when pressing the browse button in bugzill:

I'm using the same version of Firefox and it also crashes when pushing a
"browse" button, but it only happens a very few times. I will try the get some

I have been experiencing the same random "disappearing" with Firefox and
OpenOffice.org.  Over at Bug #171873 there is a report that a fix was found.  Is
it at all possible that a similar bug found its way into Ooo that is still in
Comment 4 Behdad Esfahbod 2005-11-22 19:21:20 EST
For what it's worth, I'm not experimenting that anymore.  Guess something was
very wrong with my Gtk+.
Comment 5 Russell McOrmond 2005-11-24 16:09:16 EST
Can you be more specific about what you thought was wrong with your Gtk+, and
suggestions that other people can try who still see this problem?

Note: With OOo they seem to think it may be a compiler optimization bug...

Don't exactly remember, but after a couple of days it never happened again.
