Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 246213
Firefox crashes on Flash heavy site
Last modified: 2008-08-02 19:40:34 EDT
Description of problem:
Firefox crashes when attempting to display http://www.logancitybrassband.com
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start firefox
2. Visit http://www.logancitybrassband.com
It shouldn't crash
If you have other instances of firefox running, they die as well
Core dump is nearly 60MB!!, so your bug system refuses to accept it :-(
Take a look at http://kb.mozillazine.org/Getting_a_stacktrace_with_gdb for info
how to obtain backtrace from the coredump.
Why not visit the site yourself and create a core dump? It takes about 5
seconds, probably less time than it took you to right your message.
Hmm, what about -- because it is not crashing on me (and yes, I have x86_64 so I
have no Macromedia Flashplayer here, because it doesn't work on 64bit platform)?
I would suggest installing Flashblock
(https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/433) or similar Firefox
extension. However, it seems that then this website is not that much useful.
Anyway, can I get that backtrace from you? Otherwise, I will have to close this
bug as unreproducible.
sorry, the last sentence of the first paragraph should end with "without flash
viewer" -- no offense meant against the site itself.

I cannot reproduce it even on my notebook which is i386 and with flash-plugin
What version of flash plugin you have? It's flash-plugin 22.214.171.124-1 here.
Just tried reproducing and while the browser gets very slow for me, it doesn't
crash. A backtrace would be most useful so we can determine where the fault is.
Reporter, could you please reply to the previous question? If you won't reply in
one month, I will have to close this bug as INSUFFICIENT_DATA. Thank you.
Can't you fix it yourself?
What do you mean? Whether we can (using clairvoyance, crystal ball, or by the
similar means) discover what's going on inside your computer? Remember, we were
not able to reproduce this bug here.
Matej, don't care about flash crash. It's an external plugin and we can't fix it.
Closing per developer's comment 11.
