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.

rpm -qa \*xulrun\* \*firefox\* \*mozilla\* \*flash\* \*plugin\*
Please also install firefox-debuginfo (debuginfo-install is from

(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.
Please, install also valgrind (from valgrind package) and run
valgrind --trace-children=yes --log-file=/tmp/firefox-valgrind-log.txt /usr/bin/firefox
(that's one line command, browser breaking this line into two notwithstanding)
Please, attach the file /tmp/firefox-valgrind-log.txt to this bug as an attachment as well.
We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.
Thanks in advance.
Reporter, I interpret Comment 2 to mean that this is not a bug. If this is true, please set this report closed NOTABUG. If there is still an issue, and this is a reproducible crash, please give us the steps to reproduce it for troubleshooting, thank you.
