User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; ru; rv: Gecko/20100401 Firefox/3.6.3
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; ru; rv: Gecko/20100401 Firefox/3.6.3

Hardware: BenQ A52E laptop
OS: Fedora 12
Kernel: 2.6.29
X11 (xorg): 1.6.4
Gnome enivironment

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install the above system on BenQ A52E
2. Open
3. Watch the current X11 session aborting (exits and offers to log on again - all active programs launched from the active session will be terminated)
Actual Results:  
The X11 session terminated unconditionally.

Expected Results:  
Site opening normally, without crashing the browsers/X11 session

Plugins/extensions do not matter - Firefox crashes even if all of them are disabled/uninstalled
>Watch the current X11 session aborting

doesn't match

>Firefox crashes even if all of them are disabled/uninstalled

Do you get a X11 crash or a Firefox crash ?
A Firefox crash would be our bug and a X11 crash would be a X11 bug.

FireFox crashes itself and it terminates X11 (X11 leaves no records of its abnormal termination, it assumes it's been closed in regular way, but FireFox. when started anew, reports it has been closed abnormally and offers to restore a session.

What output shall I provide to help you determine, what application (FireFox or X11) is at fault?
Firefox will always report that it closed abnormally if the X server crashed.

Note: I'm a win32 user and can you only provide with links and hints.
Do you see errors in /var/log/Xorg.0.log ?

There are no error records in the mentioned Xorg log file(s).
I'm sorry but please contact the fedora support.
I'm sure that this is a X11 crash and not a Firefox one.
