Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 446994
Epiphany crashes after upgrade
Last modified: 2009-07-14 13:56:39 EDT
Description of problem:
I've upgraded to Fedora 9.
Some time after starting epiphany it catch segfault.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Created attachment 305754 [details]
Backtrace of crash
Crash is in the Select stylesheet extension, which is known to be buggy. Switch
it off and epiphany should work.
We found that this bug has been already registered in the upstream database
(http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=525172) and believe that it is more
appropriate to let it be resolved upstream.
Red Hat will continue to track the issue in the centralized upstream bug
tracker, and will review any bug fixes that become available for consideration
in future updates.
Thank you for the bug report.
OK, apparently upstream is not going to fix this anytime soon. Could we have
"Select stylesheet" extension at least switched off per default, if not fixed?
Well, for me only way to turn buggy extension off was running "epiphany
about:blank" - it's crashing on default homepage, I guess.
Thanks for pointing on issue source.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '9'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
