Firefox 3.0.12 provided with centos is working fine but if I try to use the latest firefox-3.6.8 (the problem happened with most of the 3.6.x version), it crashes when visiting some web pages and in particular http://www.mozilla.com. It is not only firefox that crashes but the whole X session, so you are loosing all your opened applications and you have to login again. I tried to run firefox-3.6.8 using the -safe-mode option but the result is the same. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.goto http://www.mozilla.com Actual Results: The X session crash and you have to login and open a new X session. Expected Results: At least, crash only firefox but not the whole X session.
