Crashes occur when fewer tabs have been opened if they are opened quickly one after another. Crashes have ranged from as few as 6 tabs to as many as perhaps 30. The following page has worked very well for reproducing on my system but I've experienced this on a wide variety of pages: http://www.renderosity.com/gallery.ez?Sectionid=0&filter_genre_id=51&BestRanking=Yes Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: A) GENERIC: 1. goto an index page with many links to other pages (preferably pictures because they're easier to click on) 2. start using right-click + t to open the links in new tabs, do this as fast as possible 3. crash should occur randomly after a new tab has been opened. B) What Works For Me: note: you may need to get a free account to follow these instructions, sorry. 1. goto http://www.renderosity.com/gallery.ez?Sectionid=0&filter_genre_id=51&BestRanking=Yes 2. start using right-click + t to open the links (each thumbnail is a link to a full sized version) in new tabs, do this as fast as possible 3. crash should occur randomly after a new tab has been opened. Actual Results: Firefox crashed on my system when I did the above. When I say crashed, what I mean is that all windows just disappear without warning or delay. Expected Results: I would have expected firefox to not crash. I'll attach a valgrind log output incase that helps somebody. My system is AMD Athlon 64 3000+ with 512MB RAM and plenty of video and HD resources so this crash is unlikely to be a hardware failure. uname -a Linux tsllt0 2.6.12-10-386 #1 Mon Feb 13 12:13:15 UTC 2006 i686 GNU/Linux OS=Ubuntu 5.10 Ask for anything else that might help
Created attachment 214810 [details] valgrinding a shell. double plus useless Let me know if I can do anything else like this, reproducing the crash is easy on my system.
Can you reproduce this with the latest version of Firefox? (188.8.131.52)
Comment on attachment 214810 [details] valgrinding a shell. double plus useless that's not the way to run valgrind. you have two options 1. use VALGRIND_OPTS: setenv VALGRIND_OPTS "--tool=memcheck --leak-check=full --show-reachable=yes -v" ./run-mozilla.sh -g -d `which valgrind` ./firefox-bin 2. setup a shell ./run-mozilla.sh `which sh` valgrind --tool=memcheck --leak-check=full --show-reachable=yes -v ./firefox-bin
Can you reproduce this in safe mode (http://kb.mozillazine.org/Safe_Mode) in the latest version of Firefox (184.108.40.206)?
No response from reporter re: comment 4 -->INCOMPLETE. Reporter, if you still see this problem with the latest Firefox 2 please reopen this bug. Thanks!
