crash loading certain text [@ Xft
Draw Glyph Font Spec ]
debian unstable: crashes debian package mozilla-firebird 0.7-5: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20031215 Firebird/0.7 crashes mozilla-browser 2:1.5-3: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20031107 Debian/1.5-3 works fine with mozilla.org distribution*: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20031007 Firebird/0.7 * note, xft does not function somehow red hat 8.0: crashes mozilla.org distribution: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20031007 Firebird/0.7 Produce crash: 1) launch new instance of firebird with the uri: $ firebird http://webber.dewinter.com/gnupg_howto/english/GPGMiniHowto.txt 2) scroll down. browser will crash before reaching end of page. Exit code (echo $?) is 11 (segfault). This crash is reproduceable by just going to that uri, but is not as reliable. I assume this is related to xft, as I could not reproduce this bug with the mozilla.org tarball binary, which does not have xft functioning on my computer.
this is an excerpt from the specified URI. it contains the text: VVeerrssiioonn 00..11..00 ((EEnngglliisshh)) AApprriill 3300tthh 11999999,, DDuuttcchh QQuueeeenn''ss DDaayy.. with enough ^H characters to read: Version 0.1.0 (English) April 30th 1999, Dutch Queen's Day.
can you get a stack and attach it via "create a new attachment" ? http://www.mozilla.org/unix/debugging-faq.html if you're using the standard mozilla startup script, just do % mozilla -g -d gdb (gdb) run [wait for mozilla to crash] (gdb) bt (attach the output from "bt" here) do you have Microsoft .fon fonts in your fonts directories ? Does deleting (or archiving) them prevent from crashing ? Otherwise, do you have non-readable (with current user) TTF fonts ?
no .fon files on my system. all .ttf files are mode 644. $ cd /usr/lib/mozilla-firebird $ LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:. gdb ./MozillaFirebird-bin ... (gdb) bt output in attachment
this should be fixed with either 1.6b or latest 0.8 FB + XFT (which you can try easily since it's a simple tarball, no deps needed): http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firebird/nightly/latest-0.8/ Please reopen if still crashing. Thanks for the detailed report: URL, testcase, stacktrace and investigation, this helps tremendously. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 213734 ***
Mozilla 1.7a, Copyright (c) 2003 mozilla.org, build 2003122305 on solaris 8 with xft build it is not crashing
works on firebird 0.8 gtk2+xft nightly: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6b) Gecko/20031220 Firebird/0.7+ sorry I didn't check that before. verifiying resolved.
