strace firefox http://veimages.gsfc.nasa.gov//1438/nightearth.gif
Looks like a resource problem in X.
Jukka, you attached the gif again, not the strace
It looks to me like the strace is in bugzilla
(https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/attachment.cgi?id=125202). If not please
let me know and I'll upload it again. The gif is there because I pasted the
strace command as entered.
How much memory do you have, and could you post your xorg.conf?
