crashes on


(Core :: Widget: Gtk, defect)

Firefox 107





(Reporter: vincent-moz, Unassigned)


User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:107.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/107.0

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Start Firefox with a new profile.
  2. Open

Actual results:

Immediate crash. This is always reproducible.

Expected results:

FF shouldn't crash.

This also occurs with Firefox Nightly.

Note: I've also noticed crashes with Facebook, though I don't know that this is the same issue.

The Bugbug bot thinks this bug should belong to the 'Core::Widget: Gtk' component, and is moving the bug to that component. Please correct in case you think the bot is wrong.

Component: Untriaged → Widget: Gtk
Product: Firefox → Core

Could you please share the crash id?

You will find it in about:crashes

Flags: needinfo?(vincent-moz)

I can't reproduce with a fresh profile on the latest linux nightly

After creating a new profile, I get in "about:crashes": "No crash reports have been submitted."

Note that I cannot use the current profile because Firefox crashes immediately.

Flags: needinfo?(vincent-moz)

Note that I cannot reproduce the issue with FF 107 on a remote machine (same Debian package as the one that crashes here) with the local X server.

I've tried various websites on which I get crash here. No crashes with the remote machine.

The crash also occurs with previous FF versions. So this may actually be related to some library or the Linux kernel.

Crash id obtained with Firefox 93: bp-3913629a-7118-4ce7-80e9-142460221205

Bug 1644486 is assigned to Fenix / Firefox for Android, while I'm seeing the bug on Desktop Firefox. Moreover, this is for the crash reporting component. Do you mean that this component is the cause of the crash?

As I've said in bug 1360392 comment 62, the buggy Nvidia driver (apparently known to have issues with recent Linux kernels) was the cause of the crashes. With the new driver available since yesterday, everything is fine.
