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, that backtrace you've sent is intended for the upstream system, and it doesn't work for Fedora at all. Could please provide us backtrace in the good old gdb way, please?

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.

rpm -q


I went to install the debug version but it's over  225M of dependencies! That's a bit rich for my home link (volume charging) - I'll have to wait until I get back to work.

This is going to be hard to catch. I've been running FC11-preview for 3 weeks now and this is the first crash I've had of FF - so I'm not expecting it to crash any time soon

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.

More information and reason for this action is here:

Have there been any further occurrences of the crash?

Nope. I've also upgraded to FC12 - which means a different version of FF too

It doesn't have to ... we are keeping pretty close in different versions.

Feel free to reopen if it happens again.

Thank you for filing the bug
