By using strace on linux I can see that Mozilla is in an infinate loop and strace outputs: read(10, "", 8192) = 0 searching though the strace output I found out while file that is: open("/home/sandymac/.mozilla/default/tphrpkhk.slt/XUL.mfasl", O_RDONLY|O_LARGEFILE) = 10 By simply moving the file out of the way mozilla started working again. It appears there is a read loop somewhere that does not gracefully handle how ever this file is corrupted. I will add the strace output and the problem file XUL.mfasl to this bug report. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce:
The problem files are about 600K compressed and bugzilla only allows up to 300K attachments so I've made the files available at: http://flick.nerdc.ufl.edu/moz-lockup/ The zip file contains the other two files. Also, I can recreate the problem at will so if you want any other form of debugging output just ask and I'll see what I can do.
