Description of problem:
I havn't had any problem printing and previewing other web-pages. But firefox crashes when doing either of those on the given page. This happens every time.
My system is updated with evertything since the release, including todays updates.
I'm running a f8.x86_64 system with Gnome and firefox-220.127.116.11.1.fc8.x86_64.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. print or preview the given page.
Firefox dies (that is, the entire application)
It should print the page.
There's no diagnosics.
Could you try to run firefox in gdb? That is install firefox-debuginfo package
and then run
then in gdb run command
when firefox crashes run in gdb command
thread apply all backtrace
and paste the output of the command to this bug report.
Thank you very much for your help.
I can't find anything about a "firefox-debuginfo" package (or anything similar).
How do I get it?
Or at least the symbol file:
warning: Missing the separate debug info file:
sudo yum install --enablerepo=fedora-debuginfo firefox-debuginfo
sorry for not making it clear before.
I didn't get the right version of debugging symbols from there. My firefox seems
to be a later version. Possibly because there was an update to firefox in todays
packages. The debuginfo may be lagging -- I will look for my version later.
I got debuginfo for: 18.104.22.168-2, and my firefox is: 22.214.171.124.
All I could see was that: Program received signal SIGILL, Illegal instruction.
firefox-debuginfo x86_64 126.96.36.199-2.fc8 fedora-debuginfo 59 M
yum info firefox
Name : firefox
Arch : x86_64
Sorry for not explaining it enough. Every repository has its -debuginfo (and
-source, but that doesn't matter here) parallel. So, if you have switched on
fedora-updates (or fedora-updates-testing) than you should enable
fedora-updates-debuginfo (or fedora-updates-testing-debuginfo).
I am sorry once more, this is certainly not as obvious as it should be.
Can you please attach a page what crashes your firefox? Or paste an URL here.

gdb trace of Firefox after the crach when printing a web page
The version is firefox-188.8.131.52-1.fc8.x86_64.
The web page is:
This is the only web page where printing fails like that. And it always fails.
The crash is imediatly after clicking the print-button in the print dialog.
I hava a CUPS printer (HP Laserjet 4L) on an USB-port.
I can't reproduce it with Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:184.108.40.206)
Gecko/0000000000 Fedora/220.127.116.11-1.fc8 Firefox/18.104.22.168 pango-text
I'll try the x86_64 version.

Crash report from Bug buddy: Geccko for the same web page
There was a Firefox update today (for bug id: 405584, Canvas.drawimage method
problem). I tried printing the same page as before. It crashed also now, but it
this time it gave a "Bug Buddy" crash report (in the attachment).
Can you try the latest firefix 3 package? from
At this point, we're going to only be taking security fixes and major stability
fixes into this release of Fedora. However, we still want to ensure the bug is
fixed in the next version. We'd appreciate if you could test Firefox 3,
available at http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all-beta.html or now shipping
as the default in Fedora rawhide and provide feedback as to whether it still
exists so we can file a ticket upstream to try to fix it in Firefox 3 before it
The beta3 of firefox seems to have no problem with printing or previewing the
page. Assuming the page itself haven't changed, the problem should be fixed.
The version I tried describes itself as:
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686 (x86_64); en-US; rv:1.9b3) Gecko/2008020513
