The nightly build for 9/26 MozillaFirebird-i686-linux-gtk2+xft.tar.gz The non gtk2-xft version does not seem to crash. There are other sites that crash the browser but www.dishnetwork.com seems to do it most and imediatly. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Start Firebird 2. enter www.dishnetwork.com in the locator window 3. press enter 4. the site starts to load and the top dish icon displays for a second and then 5. boom Actual Results: Firebird crashes Expected Results: Displayed the page. Mozilla 1.2 displays the page okay, as does the non gtk2-xft version of Firebird.
The dish network page has a Flash object and when I downloaded the "Flash View" extension the page stopped crashing!
I downloaded a new version of Flash and installed it for Mozilla. Now Firebird does not crash and it displays Flash objects. The version of Flash I installed is: install_flash_player_6_linux.tar.gz It would be nice if Firebird reacted a bit more politely rather than just crashing.
