Thanks for the bug report. We have reviewed the information you have provided
above, and there is some additional information we require that will be helpful
in our diagnosis of this issue.
Please install firefox-debuginfo; in order to do this you have to enable
yum install --enablerepo=\*debuginfo firefox-debuginfo
(if you use x86_64 firefox, install firefox-debuginfo.x86_64 package).
Then run firefox with a parameter -g. That will start firefox running inside of
gdb debugger. Then use command run and do whatever you did to make firefox
crash. When it happens, you should go back to the gdb and run
(gdb) thread apply all backtrace
This produces usually many screens of the text. Copy all of them into a text
editor and attach the file to the bug as an uncompressed attachment.
We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.
Thanks in advance.
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.
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
Since there are insufficient details provided in this report for us to
investigate the issue further, and we have not received feedback to the
information we have requested above, we will assume the problem was not
reproducible, or has been fixed in one of the updates we have released for the
Users who have experienced this problem are encouraged to upgrade to the latest
update of their distribution, and if this issue turns out to still be
reproducible in the latest update, please reopen this bug with additional
Closing as INSUFFICIENT_DATA.
[This is a mass-closing request, if you think that this bug shouldn't be closed,
please, reopen with additional information.]
