Description of problem:
Firefox 10 crashes when printing
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start firefox
2. Open Webpage
Using Firefox 10.0.1 from Mozilla.org works fine.
How do you save the page? By Print -> Print to file?
Actually forget about saving. It even crashes when just trying to print.
The little popop: "Preparing the Print" shows up and then firefox crashes.
Cau you attach the backtrace?
Install debug-info packages (#debuginfo-install firefox xulrunner) and then get the bactrace - http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/StackTraces#gdb
I had to install a lot of debuginfo packages to actually get it to run. There are several windows open, this causes a lot of threads. Anyway, attached is the debugger output and the stacktrace.

hm a crash in _cairo_pdf_surface_emit_image().
Seems to be a crash in system cairo library:
0x7ffff365da98 "image->format == CAIRO_FORMAT_RGB24 || image->format == CAIRO_FORMAT_ARGB32 || image->format == CAIRO_FORMAT_A8 || image->format == CAIRO_FORMAT_A1", file=0x7ffff365ef38 "cairo-pdf-surface.c", line=<optimized out>,
firefox: cairo-pdf-surface.c:1913: _cairo_pdf_surface_emit_image: Assertion `image->format == CAIRO_FORMAT_RGB24 || image->format == CAIRO_FORMAT_ARGB32 || image->format == CAIRO_FORMAT_A8 || image->format == CAIRO_FORMAT_A1' failed.
What is the image->format?
Firefox from mozilla.org runs internal cairo, so it may be the reason why it works.
I don't know the image->format. What I do know is that I am trying to print any common web page on either DinA4 or Letter paper.
Does that help?
These are the installed cairo packages on my system:
Still the same with firefox-10.0.1-1.fc16.x86_64
This message is a reminder that Fedora 16 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 16. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '16'.
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 16'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 16 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, you are encouraged to click on
"Clone This Bug" 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:
Fedora 16 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2013-02-12. Fedora 16 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.
