Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 243454
firefox action "close tab" caused Xorg signal 11 Server abort
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:06 EST
Opening severial tabs in firefox (x86-64) and closing them 1 at a time will cause
the Xorg server to get a signak 11 and abort.
Not every close tab trigers this, but I have severial Xorg logs where it has
happened and can recreate it all to often, 6 crahses today.
If additional info needed I will try to provide it, I have tried to run ff from
the CmdLine redirecting sdtout & errout to a file but the file is empty after crash.

Most current Xorg log following crash
xgl-maint will probably ask you to provide more details.

Copy of Xorg-log from after firefox -> x-server abort.
Anyone looking at this at all???
Opened a month ago and only comment is from FF maintainer.
I have applided all updates via yum update through today 2007-07-21 and on the
3rd "close tab" X crashed again.
Back to FC6, and FF 1.5.*
Sorry for delay, but currently we have around 500 open bugs just for
gecko-related apps, so we are dancing as fast as we can, but it is certainly as
you (or we) would like to.
This really is an X bug anyway. I just don't know what to re-assign it to.
Of course, you are right -- we usually go for different drivers, so this is our
beloved xorg-x11-driver-nv. Oh well :-(
Should I test with the NVIDA Binary driver to confirm its an NV problem?
Is there anything I can do to pin the problem portion of the code down (debug
options traces etc)?
I have the time, just need direction on what to do.
Sure, you can try it, if it works it could be interesting datapoint, but don't
even bother to send us the logs from binary-only nVidia driver -- they are
useless to us.
Seems to be reported also in the Novell bugzilla as
https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=211314 and somebody mentioned this
for Fedora (don't if he has already filed the bug here in the Bugzilla).
And there is the upstream bug for this as well
Novell bug has been actually patched and there five patches attached to the bug
(I will reattach them to our bugzilla as well). The comments are very detailed
and thoroughfull (all 132 of them).

Actually, there are only two patches in the upstream bug, so I will rather
