Firefox randomly crashes with segmentation fault in gmail.
Last modified: 2008-07-23 12:37:44 EDT
Description of problem:
Firefox crashes with segmentation fault in gmail. It's mostly random. One time
it displays a letter the other it segfaults.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to read some letters in gmail
This is a tricky one. I'm havin all sorts of firefox crashes. And I can't
reproduce any of them. It just crashes in gmail more often. I guess it doesn't
matter what extentions I use since the stack trace attached is from ff in safe
I removed nspluginwrapper in case it's flash realted .
Created attachment 310030 [details]
full stack trace
I'm also seeing random firefox crashes all over the place in a fully up2date
x86_64 rawhide. One guaranteed way of reproducing it for me is opening:
[hans@localhost ~]$ firefox http://bugzilla.livna.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2057
/usr/lib64/firefox-3.0.1/run-mozilla.sh: line 131: 3116 Segmentation fault
I also got an abort once from glibc's malloc memory checking which backtrace
started at libhunspell, while libhunspell was doing a malloc, so chances are its
innocent, but still I thought it would be good to add a note about this.
Making this block F10Alpha, as discussed in #fedora-devel
Problem sighted on i386 as well.
Try to switch off your accessibility functionality (unless you actually need it)
and retest. DOes it help?
The hunspell crash is tracked as bug 447444.

Not for the livna bugzilla url, I have managed to open that url in firefox
sometimes if another tab was already open, but whne I start firefox with that
url as initial url it crashes constanly (for me).
Maybe this is a race condition and related to smp systems? What I'm thinking is
that since on an smp system 2 threads can run at once, if there is a race the
chance of triggering it is much bigger with smp.
Couldn't reproduce this. I'm now using firefox-3.0.1-1.fc10.x86_64.
I also disabled accessibility. Not sure if it's fixed or not. It crashed randomly.
So this can be closed. And if firefox continues to crash I'll get backtraces and
submit them and reopen the bug if the crash is related.
This seems fine for me, using xulrunner-188.8.131.52-2.fc10 (which should fix
ff3-crash-hunspell). caillon suspects this is a dup of that bug, so I'm going to
close it as such.
