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.
Thanks for the detail instructions.
In my x86_64 F7 box, I am running a firefox.i386 184.108.40.206-2.fc7, but "yum
install --enablerepo=\*debuginfo firefox-debuginfo" will install the
firefox-debuginfo.x86_64 0:3.0-0.beta2.7.fc9? there has no
And when I running "firefox -g" and open "http://lkml.org/lkml/2006/6/28/107" it
suddenly crashed, and could not go back to the gdb, I only got this:
$ firefox -g
But if I running a firefox.x86_64 version instead of the firefox.i386, it will
not broken and it works fine.
after installation of firefox-debuginfo there was no gdb - output during the
firefox - call - see below:
[a ~]$ rpm -qa |grep firefox-debuginfo
[a ~]$ firefox -g
gdb itself is installes and can be started
Doesn't crash using latest rawhide.
% rpm -q firefox xulrunner
Cannot reproduce with firefox-220.127.116.11-3.fc8 on Fedora 8 either. Closing as
WORKSFORME, because we really cannot do much about the bug which we cannot
If anybody is able to reproduce this bug with the latest updates of their
current distro and who are able to create useful backtrace, please, reopen this
bug and attach additional information on how to reproduce it.
