Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 447386
firefox crashes repeatedly in js_Invoke
Last modified: 2008-07-18 09:52:45 EDT
Description of problem:
The version of firefox bundled with Fedora 9 is extremely unstable, and crashes
every few minutes for me as follows:
Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
js_Invoke (cx=0x7f67a518a480, argc=0, vp=0x7f67a3820310, flags=2)
It can take a little while to provoke this crash, but to date my longest
browsing session has lasted perhaps 15 minutes.
I know that in some sense this isn't your fault because you didn't develop the
Firefox beta, but really, whoever decided to bundle such a crappy codebase with
a major distro upgrade needs some help making wiser decisions. Packaging a
useless version of the single most important desktop app was the sort of
decision one might easily anticipate leading to, shall we say, less than
complete user satisfaction.

I haven't been able to reproduce the problem since I upgraded to FF3 final.
Thanks for the info, closing.
