Description

2 months ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Fedora; Linux x86_64; rv:57.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/57.0
Build ID: 20171113102334

Steps to reproduce:

My system is Fedora27, gnome with wayland.

I find that when I try to use <Tab> key to change focus from "username" field to "password" field on a website for login, the gnome shell crash. 

The last website I've tried is this:
https://bugs.freedesktop.org/enter_bug.cgi?product=xorg

when I use <Tab> key to change the foucs to "password", the gnome-shell crashed. I tried many times, the result is the same.

I've tried in chrome, nothing happen.


Actual results:

the gnome-shell crashed


Expected results:

nothing happen
Can you please test with the official Firefox build downloaded from mozilla.org, which doesn't have Fedora in the UA string?

Also: does Firefox itself generate any crash report? https://support.mozilla.org/kb/mozillacrashreporter

Thankyou for replying.
I tried the official Firefox build and result is the same.

I just found that when I use <Tab> key to change foucus to "password", the input method switch table(which is on the right of the gnome top bar) is disappeared. In this moment, if I'm using the "US keybord" input method,nothing happens, but if I'm using "Intelligent Pinyin"( for Chinese) or "Kana Kanji"(for Japanese), the gnome-shell crashed.

Is this a bug for firefox or ibus?
I'm not sure...

I visited the "about:config" page, switched the key "intl.ime.use_simple_context_on_password_field" to "true",and then the gnome-shell won't crash.

Seems to be a bug at gnome-shell/Gtk+ and not Firefox itself. Please try to enable Fedora ABRT system crash reporter and file ABRT report at Fedora bugzilla. We can't use mozilla crashreporter for that as it does not crash at Firefox.
