Description Adam Miller 2013-01-15 09:48:49 EST
Description of problem:
Launch firefox, use it for a short time and it becomes unresponsive.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Every time. I've had to install another browser for the mean time because it is unusable.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Launch firefox
2. Use it... it doesn't seem to matter what sites I visit and the hang/freeze normally happens when I'm attempting to click on a aspect of the firefox UI as opposed to when I use a website.

Actual results:
Freeze/Hang of the UI

Expected results:

Additional info:
I tried running from the command line, this happens often enough that I knew it would crash soon after launching. I received the following output when it hangs:

 (firefox:3978): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: cannot register existing type `GdkWindow'

(firefox:3978): GLib-CRITICAL **: g_once_init_leave: assertion `result != 0' failed

(firefox:3978): Gdk-CRITICAL **: gdk_window_get_display: assertion `GDK_IS_WINDOW (window)' failed

If there are more debugging steps I can/should follow please let me know and I will happily supply more information.
