Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 453336
Last modified: 2008-07-21 10:57:03 EDT
I am probably doing something wrong on my end or perhaps shouldn't be using
Firebug, but I continue to see many crashes of firefox. This often happens on
backtraces I get from running
on fully updated 5.2 x86 (non fastrac)
thanks! I'll try to find a reproducer page that doesn't require login auth...

firefox bt with java plugin
Steps to reproduce this, I think...
1) Load applet from website. Use it
2) Have website go away at some point
3) Attempt to load applet again. crash

bt with SIGPIPE
lockup from an internet ticketing system
I cannot reproduce this with the latest RHEL 5.2 firefox and the latest Firebug
(had to use Nightly Tester Tools to make firebug work).
Could you try to run
to find out whether there is something strange with your installation, please?

Thanks for looking into this and sorry that I can't find a clean reproducer
yet. Will update to the nightly build of Firebug.

bt in flash, NP_Shutdown ()
Augh, For whatever reason, this page will crash me 100% of the time today...
Whatever I do, I cannot reproduce it. Make sure you have nspluginwrapper and
libflashsupport installed, and let's try to get some more information:
what's the output of
mozilla-plugin-config -f -c
rpm -qa \*firefox\* \*plugin\* \*flash\*
Thank you very much for helping look into this...
I don't have mozilla-plugin-config installed and don't seem to find which
package provides it for RHEL...
# rpm -qa \*firefox\* \*plugin\* \*flash\*
yum install nspluginwrapper libflashsupport
But there should be new firefox coming down the pipe soon, so let's wait on it.
Let us know how it goes with the upgraded firefox then.
Thanks! Just to be clear, you want me to get libflashsupport from Fedora as I
don't see it anywhere on RHN / RHEL...

Shut, sorry, no, don't bother with libflashsupport and stay just with RHEL.
To follow up on this, I am having much better luck with firefox-3.0.1-1.el5 , so
if you want to close this as CURRENT_RELEASE, that'd be fine by me.
