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.
Created attachment 137837 [details] one line of ^H chars that crashes mozilla on load 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 ?
Created attachment 137856 [details] gdb output from bt command 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 ***
