the browser crashes about at the end of the loading of the page above.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open the page: http://www.yanmar.com/about/
tested that link. no problems (gentoo linux).

perhaps it's a problem with graphics lib on your system.
but definitely not a 100% reproducable bug.

Ralph, please don't close bugs (especially crasher bugs) just because you can't reproduce them on your own system.

Reporter, if you could please try and get a Talkback ID or a stacktrace for the crash, it would be very helpful. http://kb.mozillazine.org/Talkback

The strace command on firefox (strace firefox) shows the following:

waitpid(-1, The program 'firefox-bin' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)'.
  (Details: serial 21030 error_code 11 request_code 53 minor_code 0)
  (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
   that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
   To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
   option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
   backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

My Linux version is Debian 3.1 with all update and security fixes installed.
I tried also the same version of Firefox on Windows and it doesn't crash.
After reading the comment of Ralph I tried the same version of Firefox on Windows and infact it doesn't crash. So, I don't how to solve the problem
on my Linux machine.

P.S.: I tried also the --sync option but nothing changes.
I don't get any talkback ID. I checked and the talkback agent is active.
this isn't a crash, it's a case of murder. bloody murder.

_maybe_ bug 210931 will help here.  :(  Past that, please file bugs on the GDK developers.  We wish they'd just pass the error back to us so we can handle it instead of bringing down the app.  :(
Depends on: 210931
This bug was reported on Firefox 2.x or older, which is no longer supported and will not be receiving any more updates. I strongly suggest that you update to Firefox 3.6.3 or later, update your plugins (flash, adobe, etc.), and retest in a new profile. If you still see the issue with the updated Firefox, please post here. Otherwise, please close as RESOLVED > WORKSFORME
