Firefox 6 crashes when opening:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/inkscape/+bug/180495/+attachment/186845/+files/vertov01.svg

To be precise: As long as one opens the URL in another tab and does not go to this tab (open in the background) but only views other tabs, Firefox will not crash.

No crash on Firefox 6.0 on Windows XP Sp3.
Doesn't crash for me either. Please post a crash ID from about:crashes and/or try safe mode.

I tried safe mode - but it didn't help. I never get a crash dialog and thus "about:crashes" shows only other crashes but not this one.


In the terminal, I get the following output

a) On CentOS 5.5 x86-64, where the system admin has installed Firefox 6 in /usr/local/firefox/
Gecko: Fatal IO error 104 (Connection reset by peer) on X server :0.0.


b) On openSUSE Factory (x86-64) with the distribution's Firefox (MozillaFirefox-6.0-2.1.x86_64) is used, run over an ssh connection (from the 
firefox-bin: Fatal IO error 11 (Resource temporarily unavailable) on X server localhost:10.0.

Using on the latter "--debugger gdb" does not help either.


c) Using another openSUSE Factory (x86-64) - but this time without ssh tunneling (and hence a different X server):

It does not crash - but it only shows a white page. (With inkscape, it shows something like https://launchpadlibrarian.net/11162951/vertov00.png)
You could try with --sync but this sounds like you have a problem with your X Server

Does the X Server have the BigRequest extension for AddGlyphs?
