Description

13 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20051010 Firefox/1.0.7 (Ubuntu package 1.0.7)

When using right-click + t to open tabs from links in a page firefox crashes unpredictably.  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.

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? (1.5.0.1)

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 (1.5.0.1)?
