Description

8 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:2.0b8) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/4.0b8
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:2.0b8) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/4.0b8

Clicking tab groups button sometimes crashes the X server, but sometimes it works just fine. I haven't seen a pattern as to when it is more likely to crash, but it happens at least 1 in 10 times it is clicked.

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create tabs and tab groups
2. Click the tab group button
3. Repeat until it crashes
Actual Results:  
Crashes X server.

Expected Results:  
Doesn't crash X server.

My graphics card is an ATI Radeon HD 4850. I am using Catalyst 10.10 drivers and Xorg 1.9.2 on Arch Linux 64-bit.

This probably has something to do with the close group animation, right?

Yeah it'll be a problem in the driver or the X server, but Firefox 4 is the only program that I use that triggers it. It happens immediately after releasing the mouse button, so just as the animation starts.
Can you please test with a latest nightly build you can find under the following location? I assume that this is already fixed.

http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/latest-mozilla-central/
Component: Tabbed Browser → TabCandy
QA Contact: tabbed.browser → tabcandy
If it's related to WebGL I would assume it is fixed by bug 624390.
Version: unspecified → Trunk
I'm using panorama intensively on Linux and this has never happend to me. I'm using Ubuntu with an Nvidia graphic card.
Sounds like it's fixed? If not, please re-open.

If you do run into this failure again on a nightly or beta 10, do let us know.
