Firefox 3.0.4 keeps opening files until the system runs out of file descriptors
Last modified: 2018-04-11 07:36:50 EDT
Description of problem:
Firefox 3.0.4 keeps opening files until the system runs out of file descriptors; this does not happen always, but sometimes after firefox starts spawning various new browser windows
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Sorry, but this is severely incomplete bug report -- I have no idea how to reproduce here on our systems and I certainly don't see anything like this here.
Is there anything interesting about your setup? Some kind of special configuration of your network, system, something? Are you able to reproduce the behavior with the binary from upstream (http://www.mozilla.com)? Are you able to reproduce it in the Safe Mode (run firefox -safe-mode to get there)?
We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.
Thanks in advance.
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.
In personal email:

OK, closing per your request. But if you would be interested in reporting that X bug (because it looks like one), then please reopen this bug and attach your X server config file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf, if available) and X server log file (/var/log/Xorg.*.log) to the bug report as individual uncompressed file attachments using the bugzilla file attachment link below.
If you do so, we will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.
