Crash when opening file dialog (on elementary OS at least)


(Core :: Widget: Gtk, defect, P3)

69 Branch





(Reporter: u644227, Unassigned)



User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:69.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/69.0

Steps to reproduce:

The bug doesn't seem to be totally deterministic, but happens very often (like one out of three times). To trigger it, I simply open a file dialog (with an <input type="file"> for instance).

Actual results:

Firefox crashes and closes itself before even showing the dialog.

Expected results:

The dialog should have appeared without a crash, and I should have been able to select a file to upload.

I don't have access to about:crashed in my Firefox, but I will try to reproduce with another one and to send you the report.

I'm able to duplicate this bug I'm running Arch Linux under KDE Plasma 5 desktop with most recent updates. Every time I try to upload a file, Firefox 69 is crashing. It doesn't matter what website I use, if I try to upload, it will immediately crash.

I have this same issue happening with me.

Do I understand correctly that it affects KDE only? Can you try to set GTK_USE_PORTAL=1 to use KDE-native file dialog or remove it if it's already set?

Priority: -- → P3

elementary OS is not at all based on KDE, and some users of this distribution are still affected.

This bug was probably on elementary's side, and have been fixed with
