Firefox crashes on page load with 'Bad
Alloc (insufficient resources for operation)'
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:188.8.131.52) Gecko/2008072820 Firefox/3.0.1 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:184.108.40.206) Gecko/2008072820 Firefox/3.0.1 When I open this page under Ubuntu 8.04 the browser immediately crashes and all firefox windows vanish. I disabled all addons and the page still crashes the browser. I'm using the default theme. Firefox 3.1 under Windows does not crash on the page (I'm running it in a VMWare session on the same machine). Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to http://www.elementk.com/s.asp?p=647 Actual Results: Firefox crashes. Expected Results: A page about configuring Netscape Communicator 4.6 is displayed. I tried running "firefox --sync -g -d gdb" as mentioned in another bug report and it produced this output: GCJ PLUGIN: thread 0x805f100: NP_GetMIMEDescription GCJ PLUGIN: thread 0x805f100: NP_GetMIMEDescription return GCJ PLUGIN: thread 0x805f100: NP_GetValue GCJ PLUGIN: thread 0x805f100: NP_GetValue: returning plugin name. GCJ PLUGIN: thread 0x805f100: NP_GetValue return GCJ PLUGIN: thread 0x805f100: NP_GetValue GCJ PLUGIN: thread 0x805f100: NP_GetValue: returning plugin description. GCJ PLUGIN: thread 0x805f100: NP_GetValue return The program 'firefox' received an X Window System error. This probably reflects a bug in the program. The error was 'BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)'. (Details: serial 69295 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.)
Confirmed with Firefox 3.0.1 on Mandriva Linux 2008.1. No crash reporter came up. Duplicate of bug 210931?
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true
For what it's worth, I usually run the noscript addon, and it still crashes when noscript is enabled.
No crash on trunk. Possibly fixed by 424333.
