Comment 5 Bastien Nocera 2006-10-27 05:25:58 EDT
There's not one bit of Totem related sources in the backtrace, and it looks like
the browser is trying to show you a file chooser:

#18 0x0030cfb8 in nsFilePicker::Show (this=0xa7dcea8, aReturn=0xbfae1330)
    at nsFilePicker.cpp:567

Not a Totem bug.

This problem was eventually worked around by changing the totem plugin:
Comment 8 Bastien Nocera 2007-04-05 05:49:08 EDT
If that's the same bug, then it should be fixed in Totem 2.18.0 (2.18.1 is the
current rawhide build).
