Description Thorsten Scherf 2006-07-31 04:49:34 EDT
Description of problem:
firefox crashes sometimes when calling urls

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

How reproducible:
open firefox and call some urls

Steps to Reproduce:
1.start firefox 
2.call some urls
Actual results:
firefox crashes with the following error:
The program 'Gecko' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)'.
  (Details: serial 120 error_code 8 request_code 146 minor_code 3)
  (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
   that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
   To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
   option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
   backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

Expected results:
no crash :)

problem only happens when visiting flash sites. 
Comment 2 Thorsten Scherf 2006-08-03 09:24:35 EDT
tried the same flash-7 plugin with epiphany and it works without problems,
firefox still crashes when visiting a flash-site. 

rpms used:

[tscherf@tiffy ~]$ rpm -q firefox
[tscherf@tiffy ~]$ rpm -q epiphany
