Description Derek Poon 2006-03-01 08:14:31 UTC
Description of problem:
Thunderbird crashes immediately when run from the command line.  The process
just disappears without a trace.  Closer inspection reveals that it has crashed
from a segfault.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
... on FC4 for PPC with all updates applied.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rm -rf ~/.thunderbird
2. thunderbird
3. Dialog appears, offering to import settings into profile.  It doesn't matter
whether which choice you pick; click Next.  Thunderbird creates a profile in
~/.thunderbird, then crashes.
4. Run thunderbird -g to get the stack trace (included below).

Additional info:
Stack trace from running thunderbird -g

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

Comment 1 Christian Iseli 2007-01-22 10:06:34 UTC
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 2 Matěj Cepl 2007-07-18 17:23:20 UTC
Distribution against which this bug was reported is no longer supported; could
you please reproduce this with the updated version of the currently supported
distribution (Fedora Core 6, or Fedora 7, or Rawhide)? If this issue turns out
to still be reproducible, please let us know in this bug report.  If after a
month's time we have not heard back from you, we will have to close this bug as

Setting status to NEEDINFO, and awaiting information from the reporter.

Thanks in advance.

Comment 3 Matěj Cepl 2007-08-28 14:48:01 UTC
We haven't got any reply to the last question about reproducability of the bug
with Fedora Core 6, Fedora 7, or Fedora devel. Mass closing this bug, so if you
have new information that would help us fix this bug, please reopen it with the
additional information.
