Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 200735
clicking some links causes firefox to close.
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:26 EST
Description of problem:
When I open gmail (and maybe other sites as well) and click a link, in gmail to
read a message, firefox dies.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
every time I try to open a message in the gmail interface
Steps to Reproduce:
1.login to gmail
2.click an e-mail to read
3.watch firefox vanish
Firefox unexpectedly dies
Firefox should open the link and render data as older versions did, and still do.
I have reverted to firefox version firefox-1.0.7-1.4.3, but firefox-1.0.8-1.4.1
still works as well.
I see this when opening http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/enterprise when
running firefox-220.127.116.11-0.el4.1, but NOT when running firefox-18.104.22.168 from
the firefox website, and I've been running 1.5 for quite a while, actually
the version of firefox was 22.214.171.124 with firefox updating it to 126.96.36.199 on
July 27 2006, so it wasn't firefox 188.8.131.52 directly downloaded from the
firefox home page. In addition, it will fail at the same point on
x86_64 arch as well as i386 arch. The x86_64, did start to send info on the crash
but I don't think it completed it.
I too am getting constant crashes with firefox-184.108.40.206-0.el4.1. For example:
This bug is so obvious I'm astounded it passed Q&A...
is this a possible dupe of bug #200627?
do you have freetype-2.1.9-4.el4 installed?
Change status to RESOLVED, was related to the pango bug, which was related to
freetype and is now fixed.

Good stuff, closing.
