I ran Firefox from shell and when it crashed I received the following error in the command line:

[1]+  Segmentation fault      firefox -P "Temp" -no-remote

After I get the above error, I cannot execute the command anymore and received another error:
/usr/lib/firefox-3.0.11/firefox: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/ undefined symbol: g_signal_handlers_disconnect_matched

I'd be glad to give more details. Please ask...

I have a lot of sites open:
- different sites

4 windows
~4 tabs each window

Firefox stays up and running for days.

When I listen to music in - it crashes.

Could you provide the crash report ID from about:crashes?
He is using a Ubuntu Version of Firefox and only original builds come with our crashreporter.

Please read , there should be a link to the Ubunto instructions at the end or you are trying to use an original build.

I'm reading on how to get the stack trace...

Also, i'm positive that it was not one of the plugins I mentioned above.
I got the same problem with a clean profile - just the "ubuntu firefox modifications" plugin

I couldn't install the debug thingy. Sorry. I followed ubuntu's instructions and didn't work.

At home, on ubuntu 9.04 32bit, i couldn't reproduce during the weekend.
It did crashed a week ago on my home computer - perhaps some updated was pushed a few days ago.

Anyway, i'll try reproducing it on my work computer ubuntu 32b 8.10 again.
If I succeed, perhaps someone can do this as well...

It did crash on another 32b - same ubuntu version, but lately it haven't crashed.
I upgraded to 9.04 a few days ago and haven't happened since.
I'll try it again and tell you the results.

It crashed with the same scenario (Playing The prodigy hits) on ubuntu 9.04 32b.
I timed it:

$ time firefox
Segmentation fault

real	8m52.662s
user	2m20.009s
sys	0m17.213s

Alik, did you ever try what was suggested in comment #3?  That would help out tremendously!

Comment 11

Tried it and didn't work - as I wrote in comment #5.

Am I the only one having this problem?
The scenario is very short though takes time to crash (not human hours - machine's).
Everyone can do it by creating a new profile, which is what I did, in order not to crash the whole working environment (all open tabs and windows).
The link to what I was listening (that crashed) is:[1]&auto_redirect=true

So, if anyone has the debug thingy installed - he can probably reproduce it and see the full crash report.
No one commented that it is not reproducible...
Reporter, please retest with Firefox 3.6.12 or later in a fresh profile ( Also update your plugins (flash, adobe reader, java, quicktime, silverlight, etc/) Go to the developer's website and download the latest version from there.

No reply, INCOMPLETE. Please retest with Firefox 3.6.12 or later and a new profile ( If you continue to see this issue with the newest firefox and a new profile, then please comment on this bug.
