Forgot to add that it works fine with konqueror. Haven't tried any other browsers.

The same happens for `icedtea-web` (java6 version of this package). Since packages are maintenained by the same person and the bug seems to be the same, I'm not opening a new report.

Package: icedtea-web 1.2.1 (x86_64)
Other packages used: firefox 14.0.1-1, openjdk6 6.b24_1.11.3-1 (same happens with openjdk6 6.b24_1.11.2-1)

I'm not able to reproduce the crash for version compiled with debug symbols, hence I can't provide a nicer bt.

Are there any cases where this update does *not* crash Firefox?
If it's broken across the board then surely it should be rolled back?
Comment by Andreas Radke (AndyRTR) - Friday, 03 August 2012, 10:40 GMT
It works well with Xombrero. I won't roll back to an older version with security issues.

As long as nobody reports it upstream it won't get fixed.

It also happens on my system with Aurora and Firefox.

I have opened a bug upstream [edit: icedtea that is]:

Upstream [edit: icedtea that is ] says it an Arch-bug... [Edit2: But there's also a Gentoo guy experiencing it].

Are you all x86_64 users?
Comment by Thomas Wouters (twouters) - Friday, 03 August 2012, 13:02 GMT
ack x86_64

> Are you all x86_64 users?
I am.

Marcin Andrzejewski is.

Marti (intgr) is cf. the icedtea-web bug.

The Gentoo guy on the icedtea-web bugzilla is.

My system does not crash with Xombrero, though (probably due to webkit?)
Comment by Javier (jevv) - Friday, 03 August 2012, 16:18 GMT
Firefox crashes for me instantly as well on both x86_64 and i686.

Got the same bug with seamonkey, trying to access www.flyordie.com chess game.
Comment by mpan (mpan) - Saturday, 04 August 2012, 02:31 GMT
The patch Vlastimil Babka has posted on IcedTea bugzilla fixes the issue for me.
