Today mozilla blew up in memory consumption to such proprotions that it ran my machine out of memory (256 MB ram + 256 MB swap). Anyway, it caused xfs to die. I killed mozilla and then tried to restart it. It just silently seg faulted. Netscape Communicator, on the other hand, reports the meaningful error that the no fonts can be found.
Reporter, did this happen on a particular page? What build are you using? What version of X and xfs? Over to XP Miscellany; this is not a networking bug.

I generally have four pages open, http://my.yahoo.com (with my customized profile), http://slashdot.org (with my customized profile), http://freshmeat.net/daily/2001/02/27/ (or the current date), and Ebay after I enter some search criteria. I just had mozilla grow to nearly 200 MB (jgotts 30394 5.9 49.7 186856 128268 ? R 00:41 78:29 /usr/lib/mozilla/mozilla-bin) with these pages and the GeForce 3 article on http://www.tomshardware.com/. I am using XFree86 4.0.2.
Adding crash keyword.
