Description Scott Griffin 2008-02-15 09:36:45 EST
Description of problem:
When using the channeled version of FireFox with Flash (channeled from
Red Hat RHN), whenever I click to add an attachment in the Red Hat Support area
or any other website the browser instantly crashes. It has to do with Flash or
some aspect of the function of adding an attachment. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv: Gecko/20080201 Red
Hat/ Firefox/
Linux optiplex 2.6.18-53.1.13.el5 #1 SMP Mon Feb 11 13:27:52 EST 2008 i686 i686
i386 GNU/Linux

How reproducible:
Open FireFox click on add attachment, browser instantly crashes with no output
ot screen about error or reason.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open FireFox
2. Go to Red Hat Support site, click on add attachment.
3. Browser crashes and no output to screen.
Actual results:
I am not sure if this ties in with Flash or a bug in the browser or which. I
have only downloaded the Supported/Channeled version of FireFox and this is a
Server 5.1 RHEL5.1 workstation. 

Expected results:
Open FireFox, click add on attachment and the ability to add a log file without

Apparently I was able to attach the above shown file with the firefox
Do you have some other details which would help us to reproduce the bug here,
please? (Unfortunately, I am not able to use RH Support website now).
