Randomly, if you hit enter in dialog boxes instead of clicking ok, the browser
segfaults.  If it happens from clicking as well, it is much less often.

I finally managed to get a talkback build and caused it to crash.
The incident ID is: TB20347901Z

ok, did it a couple more times now.
It seems to be almost guaranteed in the file browser for selecting a viewer for
an attachment that if you type in the application name and hit enter, it will
crash.  I tried several times with typing the name and then clicking ok and it
worked fine.  But as soon as I hit enter instead of clicking, it instantly crashed.

Talkback ID: TB20349502K in the file selector and another: TB20349577Q

Actually, it isn't instant.  The dialog goes away leaving a blank area, pauses
for a moment and I get this sinking feeling as I know in a couple of seconds all
my mozilla windows will go away...

unfortuantely the talkback builds for linux seem to have broken talkback
functionality recently.  Over to XPApps/

It happens in ALL dialog boxes.
e.g. Chatzilla asks for a nick to use, you hit enter, Mozilla crashes.

This has been occurring for a long time on Linux builds.  I'm glad someone
finally identified what was causing the crash.
It's not likely that this is my bug (but you never know).

However, I won't be able to get this to the right person without a useful stack.

After upgrading from Mandrake 7.1 to 7.2, the bug has vanished.  Sorry, I guess
I won't be able to provide a stack trace.

It seems to have gotten a little harder to reproduce, but here are 2 talkbacks:
TB21246523G  from chatzilla nick dialog
TB21248110Q  from form submit dialog
the last two stack traces are the same, here's one of 'em:

I haven't had this happen to me for quite a while now, since applying the
solution for bug 59345, which was upgrading the glib/gtk libraries.
Could someone who is still having this problem please try the solution listed in
bug 59345 and report back.

well, I can't reproduce this 'crash'on the helper app dialog. Tossing this back 
to sairuh to check on dialogs in her area.
