Description

9 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; OpenBSD i386; en-US; rv:1.8.1.6) Gecko/20070819 Firefox/2.0.0.6
Build Identifier: 

Since flash10 amd64 is buggy I wanted to run 32-bit mozilla with 32-bit flash10.  This made FF 3.0.5 (downloaded from mozilla.com) crash with a double-free when flash entered fullscreen mode.  It did not crash when I used Debian's 32-bit FF 3.0.4 binaries with the same configuration.  I believe this could be a bug in FF rather than in flash or debian or nvidia's driver because it works with Debian's binaries.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Started with an amd64 Debian unstable install with nvidia's drivers and in particular the package nvidia-glx-ia32 (32-bit libGL for 32-bit programs)
2. Grabbed the 32-bit .tar.gz of FF 3.0.5 from mozilla.com.
3. Put the 32-bit flash 10 in ~/.mozilla/plugins.
4. Go to youtube, msnbc, comedy central, hulu, etc.  Play a video and go into fullscreen mode.
Actual Results:  
Crash.  stderr has a message about a double free inside libc.

Expected Results:  
Should play in fullscreen mode.

Since I've seen this work in Debian 32-bit running with a 64-bit kernel before I decided to extract the 32-bit debian packages for firefox (*ahem* "iceweasel") 3.0.4, cp relevant binaries and dependencies into /usr/local, and run FF (*ahem* "iceweasel")... Fullscreen flash video works fine.  So maybe they have a fix/workaround that hasn't made it into an upstream release?

The above attachment isn't using the mozilla stacktrace but i will have a look at that in a mo and report back if necessary. 

Anyway, this seems to be the main part:

*** glibc detected *** /opt/firefox/firefox-bin: munmap_chunk(): invalid pointer: 0xee9fb3a0 ***
======= Backtrace: =========
/lib32/libc.so.6[0xf68c4130]
