Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Launch Mozilla and display home page. 2.Navigate to news.com.com (Cnet news home page) 3.Click the back button to return to your home page. 4.Mozilla crashes. Alternative steps to reproduce: 1.Launch Mozilla and display home page. 2.Navigate to news.com.com (Cnet news home page) 3.Click on one of the links on this page. 4.Mozilla crashes (usually, but not always). Actual Results: Mozilla crashes. Expected Results: Mozilla should not crash. In the 'alternative steps to reproduce' (listed above), Mozilla crashes when a link on the news.com.com page is clicked in an attempt to navigate to another news article. However, if you navigate directly to another news article by entering the URL in the navigation field (rather than clicking on a link on the news.com.com page), then Mozilla does not crash.
Dom, do you get a Talkback window popup when crashing ? If so, please post Talkback ID for this crash by running 'mozilla/bin/components/talkback/talkback'.

Olivier, I haven't gotten Talkback to work since I switched from Windows to Linux 3 weeks ago. I download the tar.gz file, extract its files, and run the installer. But Talkback never activates. When Mozilla crashes, it just disappears without creating a Talkback report. Could you direct me to a site that explains how to set up Talkback in a Linux environment?
You shouldn't need to do anything special to activate talkback. In this specific crash, talkback does not activate because gdk actually detects a problem and calls exit. You can configure talkback by running mozilla_dir/components/talkback/talkback, but it should bring the configuration up the first time you crash. you can test talkback at bug 154797 (try out the testcase)
