Kernel 2.6.22. xorg version 1.3.0. Nvidia video, 7800GS, driver 173.14.05 (most recent driver). I installed the firefox download as a system wide installation, placing it at the locations required by my distro (/usr/local/firefox and /usr/lib/firefox-3.0). I also symlinked the firefox executable in /usr/bin to point to /usr/local/firefox/firefox. At this URL: http://www.softwareforlandlords.com:2082/frontend/bluehost/stats/lastvisit.html?domain=softwareforlandlords.com&ssl=0 grabbing the vertical scrollbar with the mouse and dragging it to the top causes X-windows to crash repeatably.. This results in a complete restart of the user session. Unfortunately this URL is a statistics page with a hosting service. Specifically this is the "recent visitors" utility on the cpanel implementation at bluehost.com and it can only be accessed via password. I do not know if the problem would occur on some other cpanel installation or not. If you wish, I can make local copy of the page and make it available.to you for testing, but this requires that I construct an archive and attach it...give me an email address to use and I'll do it. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. go to that URL (or perhaps a similar one) 2. grab drag bar, pull to the top. 3. BOOM! Actual Results: Hard crash of X. Expected Results: window scrolls to the top.
Bug is reproducible on local copy of this page, so I can send it if you want. Also forgot to mention, system has Compiz 0.6.2 running as well.
Yes, please attach a version of the page.
Created attachment 325651 [details] local copy of page that crashes firefox on my system. This is a long page. Just guessing, there is a buffer overflow someplace.
Tried scrolling up/down repeatedly for a while. Could not reproduce. (Firefox 3.0 on Mandriva 2008.1) Not running Compiz, so it could be that.

Before doing that, might I suggest trying a more current version of xorg. In 2007.0 you're using 1.3 but in 2008.1 we're up to 1.4. Always a chance it's already been fixed. ;)
I can try an update to 1.4, presuming I don't get into dependency hell.

look for things like /var/log/Xorg.0.log* but you're probably going to file a bug against nvidia. the latest driver is 173.14.09, so you aren't quite current (but fairly close)
Update to Release 1.4 of Xorg seems to have solved the problem.
Summary: Firefox 3.0 release crashes X-windows → Firefox 3.0 crashes Xorg 1.3 when scrolling
