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.

Unfortunately, automatically generated backtrack you provided is pretty much
useless to us. Could you please upgrade to the latest version of provided
packages and reproduce this following these instructions?

First of all, could we get output of the command

	rpm -qa *xulrun* *firefox* *mozilla* *flash* *plugin*

Please also 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.

There is something strange going on with your repos. Can I get output of the command

yum repolist

Thank you

Comment 7 Matěj Cepl 2008-08-01 13:36:44 UTC
OK, so two things:

1) please, file a bug against yum-utils component, that debuginfo-install
doesn't work as it should
2) are you able to reproduce the bug consistently? Which website this happens
on? We need some more information to be able to reproduce this bug on our computers.

Comment 8 Matěj Cepl 2008-09-18 15:11:11 UTC
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.

Comment 9 Art Sornat 2008-09-18 16:10:38 UTC
I cannot reproduce this bug consistently. I think it happens on

Comment 10 Matěj Cepl 2008-09-19 15:27:16 UTC
I tried gazeta.pl -- it is an interesting site, but still I cannot get firefox to crash.

Let's give you a month, and unless you will show me a way how to make firefox crash, or at least a good backtrace, I will close this bug as INSUFFICIENT_DATA.

Comment 11 Matěj Cepl 2008-10-20 21:37:40 UTC
Since there are insufficient details provided in this report for us to investigate the issue further, and we have not received feedback to the information we have requested above, we will assume the problem was not reproducible, or has been fixed in one of the updates we have released for the reporter's distribution.

Users who have experienced this problem are encouraged to upgrade to the latest update of their distribution, and if this issue turns out to still be reproducible in the latest update, please reopen this bug with additional information.
