Description Noel Duffy 2011-01-26 02:56:15 EST
abrt version: 1.1.14
architecture: x86_64
Attached file: backtrace
cmdline: /usr/lib64/firefox-3.6/firefox
component: firefox
crash_function: std::__throw_logic_error
executable: /usr/lib64/firefox-3.6/firefox
package: firefox-3.6.13-1.fc14
rating: 4
reason: Process /usr/lib64/firefox-3.6/firefox was killed by signal 6 (SIGABRT)
release: Fedora release 14 (Laughlin)

I use gnash 0.8.8 to handle Flash on my system. I believe that it is responsible.

Anyway, http://www.squidoo.com/kitchen-blinds is the offending website and it crashes Firefox consistently. If I disable Gnash then Firefox does not crash.

How to reproduce
1. Install gnash for viewing Flash videos. (0.8.8)
2. Open a tab with http://www.squidoo.com/kitchen-blinds
3. Boom. sigabrt.

Comment 3 Fedora End Of Life 2012-08-16 09:22:36 EDT
This message is a notice that Fedora 14 is now at end of life. Fedora 
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 14. It is 
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no 
longer maintained.  At this time, all open bugs with a Fedora 'version'
of '14' have been closed as WONTFIX.

(Please note: Our normal process is to give advanced warning of this 
occurring, but we forgot to do that. A thousand apologies.)

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, feel free to reopen 
this bug and simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we were unable to fix it before Fedora 14 reached 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, you are encouraged to click on 
"Clone This Bug" (top right of this page) and open it against that 
version of Fedora.

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:
