There are 16 reports with this signature over the last month, all on Linux. The earliest Firefox version reported is Firefox 31 so I don't think this is a recent regression. That said, volume being as low as it is might make this very low priority.|

Looks like for now we're just tripping up random things in the open radeon drivers. That and the fact that this was reported on AMD legacy hardware (Radeon HD 3200) makes it somewhat hard to do much about unless we can scrounge up anyone with similar hardware.

It would be nice to know if this can be triggered on any other Linux/Mesa setup such as intel or nouveau.

Unfortunately, this issue is no longer reproducible with 38.0.5 beta 2 (Build ID: 20150514163436), across the following platforms: Ubuntu 12.04 32-bit (nVidia GeForce GT 620), Ubuntu 14.04 32-bit (AMD Radeon HD 3000) and Ubuntu 13.10 32-bit (Intel HD 2500).

Actually, I would say it's good if we don't crash any more. :)
Just hit this crash while following the guidelines via in order to test off-main-thread compositing under Linux - when creating the 'layers.offmainthreadcomposition.animate-transform' Boolean preference, latest 40.0a2 automatically crashes under Ubuntu [1]: bp-608f5b7c-9a76-4d96-9547-244612150624

No issues encountered on Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit (Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce 210) nor 12.04 32-bit (Graphics: AMD Radeon HD 6450).

More reports, but different signatures:

[1] Ubuntu 14.04 32 and 64 bit (Graphics: AMD Radeon HD 6450)
[2] Ubuntu 14.04 32-bit (Graphics: AMD Radeon HD 3000)

Adding ni flag for :nical since he wrote that article and may have some clues. Thanks in advance!

I spoke with Milan about this today and he indicated this is not a supported configuration. While this bug may be valid, it's not a priority for the graphics team at this time.
Flags: needinfo?(nical.bugzilla)
I didn't try any particular game, but I have no problem with enabling animate-transform. 
I wonder if it's the hardware (Radeon 6310M), the software (Manjaro Linux), or just 980770 progressing.

_Years_ without an answer. 
Could somebody close this?
Priority: -- → P3

Closing because no crashes reported for 12 weeks.
