Mozilla dies when X server runs out of memory
Last modified: 2018-04-11 09:07:28 EDT
Description of problem:
When the X server runs out of memory mozilla simply dies
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Happens every time
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Login from an X server with a small amouunt of memory
2. Start mozilla
3. Open a number of tabs with many pictures.
When the X serve runs out of memory mozilla dies and all mozilla windows disappears.
Mozilla handles the condition gracefully by removing some of the least recently
used images from the X server. And if that doesn't help show an appropriate
error message rather than terminating.
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 ?
