From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.7) Gecko/20020121 BuildID: Mozilla 0.9.7 - 20020121 no matter which version I have, every mozilla under linux crash when people visit flash-enabled sites with using sound-players. (ie. timidity - midi player, xmms, realplayer -- such as resource-eating too much-apps. mostly using OSS modules.) Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Excute xmms using OSS module(or timidity) and play musics. 2.Invoke your mozilla and surf the web. 3.when you visit flash-enabled(, which has shockwave or flash applets) sites, mozilla will stop. To solve this problem, you must kill or close the sound-playing applications(explained in Description). Actual Results: stops and sleeps until finishing the sound-apps. nothing works. I can't click the toolbars and menus. mouse pointer is not turned into finger-form. To make the sounds going on-, should kill mozilla with window-manager's kill option. After that, if visit into the same page, mozilla vanishs from my root window(he dies). Expected Results: I wish the mozilla can surf flash-enabled site without intervening sound-apps.
Everybody wishes that. :) Too bad the flash _plugin_ is where the bug is. Netscape 4 experiences the same exact problems. Downgrading to Flash 4 fixes the problems in both Netscape and Mozilla. Running mozilla through esd or equivalent fixes the problems too. Duplicate of "Flash plugin (presumably 5.0 r47 only) hangs mozilla, when it's trying to play audio, while audio device is active. (Reproducible with some [e.g. es1371] sound driver)". That has some details of how to run mozilla to avoid this problem. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 58339 ***
