abrt 1.1.1 detected a crash.
Attached file: backtrace
cmdline: /usr/bin/Xorg :0 -br -verbose -auth /var/run/gdm/auth-for-gdm-WWdoTF/database -nolisten tcp
reason: Process /usr/bin/Xorg was killed by signal 6 (SIGABRT)
release: Fedora release 13 (Goddard)
This crash happens consistently for me, in both my regular account and in
a new test account I set up with a completely stock Fedora 13 environment.
I believe that this may be a duplicate of bz#600862 and/or bz#598761;
however, I don't know how to get abrt to attach its report to an existing
How to reproduce
1. create a completely stock account
2. install the NoScript addon to Firefox
3. start Firefox
4. use the right mouse button to call up the content-area context menu
5. go down to the NoScript submenu entry and try to enter it
This consistently crashes the X server for me.

An update: this bug appears to have gone away with the current set of
Fedora 13 updates. I'm not sure exactly when it went away (for obvious
reasons I didn't make a habit of trying this out), and I don't remember
seeing any obvious updates for relevant packages like X stuff; the most
vaguely relevant one I can remember is a new kernel.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 13 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 13. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '13'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 13's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 13 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 13 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2011-06-25. Fedora 13 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
