Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 179834
run-mozilla.sh can't find core files
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:06 EDT
Description of problem:
/usr/lib/firefox-188.8.131.52/run-mozilla.sh is looking for a core file named "core",
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. ulimit -c unlimited
2. DEBUG_CORE_FILES=1 firefox --safemode
3. Load http://simonbaird.com/mptw1/
4. Click on Minesweep in left-side column
After core dumping, a new commandline prompt is reached.
<After core dump>
Oh no! /usr/lib/firefox-184.108.40.206/firefox-bin just dumped a core file.
Do you want to debug this ? You need a lot of memory for this, so watch out ? [y/n]
The cause of this core dump has something with assign global variables in
220.127.116.11 Dumps with Tiddlywiki 1.2.x"), but this isn't really relevant to this
bug report (it happens on the windows version of firefox 18.104.22.168 too).
I worked around this bug temporarily by inserting "mv core.* core" at line 168
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
