Description Martin Jürgens 2008-05-18 10:47:16 EDT
Description of problem:
My firefox crashes sometimes when I try to close a tab while I have another one
open. After it crashed, I was able to let it crash as often as I wanted by
starting it and continuing the session. I was able to get a backtrace at which
you might want to have a look at.

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 (debuginfo-install is from
yum-utils package).

	debuginfo-install firefox

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.

I have now install debuginfos, but still have to wait for a crash. Can take some
days. Sorry.
Comment 4 Matěj Cepl 2008-05-19 10:10:50 EDT
Sure, let's keep that NEEDINFO active then.
Comment 5 Matěj Cepl 2008-06-23 18:08:39 EDT
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.

Did not appear again.. Will reopen if it does and I can get a backtrace.
