What did you do? (steps to reproduce)

  -untick the checkbox "Title Bar" at "Customize Firefox" 

What happened? (actual results)

  - Firefox crashes

What should have happened? (expected results)

  - the title bar should be hidden, when it is supported
  - when it isn't supported, the checkbox should be grey-out
  - Firefox shouldn't crash

Further information:

  - operating system: Debian Jessie(8.10), with KDE4
  - crash report:
Depends on: gtktitlebar
Blocks: gtktitlebar
No longer depends on: gtktitlebar
I see you report that from 60.0.1 build according to the Build ID 20180516032328. Can you please try latest nightly from ?

Also, which Gtk+ version do you have installed?
The crash somes from oxygen-gtk - I suspect we pass some wrong arguments to some widget rendering (at moz_gtk_button_paint like zero with/height or so) which can cause the crash.

The Problem does exist in 62.0a1 too.

And my Gtk+ version is:
  Package: libgtk-3-0                      
  State: installed
  Automatically installed: yes
  Multi-Arch: same
  Version: 3.14.5-1+deb8u1
Flags: needinfo?(dheddicke)
Ondrej, can you look at it please?

I tried to reproduce this bug on Debian 8.10, gtk 3.14.5-1, Firefox 61/62 with the oxygen theme and everything works well for me. Could you please try to run Firefox with a fresh profile/in a safe mode, if this problem persists? If it does, could you please capture a video of the crash happening?
Flags: needinfo?(dheddicke)
Please reopen if you still see that, Thanks.

I just got this problem myself. Everything happens just like in dheddicke's report.

I started having this problem after updating the following packages on my archlinux system:

gtk-update-icon-cache (3.24.1+8+g220f77d8c1-1 -> 3.24.1+155+g4c8fcd6a6f-1)
gtk3 (3.24.1+8+g220f77d8c1-1 -> 3.24.1+155+g4c8fcd6a6f-1)
firefox (63.0.3-1 -> 64.0-1)
libteam (1.27-2 -> 1.28-1)

If I run Firefox from a terminal after a crash I get some warnings:

(firefox:5760): Gtk-WARNING **: 20:30:08.346: Theme parsing error: <data>:1:34: Expected ')' in color definition

(firefox:5760): Gtk-WARNING **: 20:30:08.346: Theme parsing error: <data>:1:77: Expected ')' in color definition

(firefox:5760): Gdk-WARNING **: 20:30:24.568: Can't set ParentRelative background for window 0x2c00079, depth of parent doesn't match

And then, when I untick the checkbox I get this:

(firefox:5760): Gdk-ERROR **: 20:30:34.471: The program 'firefox' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)'.
  (Details: serial 56114 error_code 8 request_code 7 (core protocol) minor_code 0)
  (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
   that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
   To debug your program, run it with the GDK_SYNCHRONIZE environment
   variable to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
   backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)
ExceptionHandler::GenerateDump cloned child 6016
ExceptionHandler::SendContinueSignalToChild sent continue signal to child
ExceptionHandler::WaitForContinueSignal waiting for continue signal...
Trace/breakpoint trap (core dumped)

I hope this helps.
