Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 233125
Some firefox extension don't survive after firefox upgrade or install any other extension
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:59 EST
Description of problem:
These firefox extensions:
* "official" del.icio.us for firefox
* google toolbar
don't work any longer when firefox upgrade from 188.8.131.52 to 184.108.40.206.
Also, they can only be installed & used on a "clean" firefox profile. If any
firefox extension is installed by the user first, these extensions could be
installed, but they just don't work.
A third description: when they are installed on a "clean" profile, they work
well. But I cannot install other extensions, or they will stop working.
In either case(after a change), run firefox in the terminal, it first segfaults,
then can startup normally.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install del.icio.us to a "clean" profile
2. restart firefox and then configure del.icio.us to work.
3. install another extension, such as foxyproxy
4. restart firefox again
firefox segfaults. It could be started in a second try, but those extensions
firefox should start normally, and all extensions should work as usual.
the "official" firefox downloaded from mozilla.com works well, so this is fedora
Martin, please have a look at this.
Can you please check to update to firefox-220.127.116.11-3.fc7?
Anyway, I can't reproduce it. I installed google toolbar/foxyproxy extensions to
a clear FX 18.104.22.168-2, updated to 22.214.171.124-3 and toolbar/foxyproxy were here.
It could be a problem with del.icio.us, but I didn't check it. It needs an ugly
registration. Can you please check the update without it? (i.e. remove it and
then update the system)
I cannot find the old version of firefox so I just tried with some new profile.
It seems this has nothing to do with del.icio.us plugin. It is because of the
"colorzilla" addon (strange!) When I uninstalled the "colorzilla" plugin, all of
the other plugins come back to life now.
Will you look into this?
Odd. It could simply be a bug in colorzilla. I think that this should be
reported there. We don't ship colorzilla so there's not much i can do to fix it....

Well, I don't agree. It only breaks in rawhide firefox, not with "official"
downloaded version. Also, please open firefox in the terminal, see how many
times it crashes when starting up/exiting.
If it crashes, please attach a backtrace here. run "firefox -g" from terminal,
run it and when it crashes, type "bt" and attach it here.
No information requested was provided, so I close this bug as INSUFFICIENT_DATA.
Reporter, if you could, please, reopen with additional information.
