Comment 1 Zhou Yunfei 2007-06-04 08:59:01 UTC
There is no such occurrence in Ubuntu 7.04.

Comment 2 Matěj Cepl 2007-06-04 22:56:49 UTC
comment 1 is totally irrelevant -- Ubuntu has quite different browser. Could we
stay with Fedora, please?

Could you follow advice on
http://kb.mozillazine.org/Getting_a_stacktrace_with_gdb and provide us a
backtrace of when firefox crashes? Could you please attach it to this bug as
uncompressed attachment to this report please?

Thanks a lot

Comment 4 Zhou Yunfei 2007-06-05 01:20:56 UTC
Irrelevant perhaps,but both Ubuntu 7.04 and Fedora 7 use Firefox 2 as default
web brower
A little help maybe.
That's the only case that I fail to use Google Toolbar in Firefox.

If you'd like to run the Google Toolbar for Firefox on a Linux platform, please
make sure your system has glibc 2.3.5 or higher and libstdc++5. You also need to
be running an x86 processor (PPC systems are not supported). Please note that
the Toolbar is currently unavailable for Fedora Core 6. We also recommend using
an official build of Mozilla Firefox from http://www.mozilla.org

% rpm -ql libstdc++       

I wonder if this is because that requires a waaayy much older libstdc++ than
what we ship...  Does the following command help?

yum install compat-libstdc++

Comment 7 Christopher Aillon 2007-06-05 01:52:23 UTC

yum install compat-libstdc++-33

Comment 8 Zhou Yunfei 2007-06-05 05:53:21 UTC
Thanks, it's done.
On FC6,I happened to installed compat-stdc++ beforehand,so everything is OK.
Fedora 7 is great,I'm so eager to taste Fedora 8!

Comment 9 Christopher Aillon 2007-06-05 06:28:10 UTC
Glad it works now.  Thanks for the report.
