Re: [K12OSN] Firefox crashes



i just found out that i have this issue too :-( on a new old machine we just got from a junkyard.
we use fc6 + ltsp 4.2 on the server. and the terminal has a i810 video card + 1M ram amongst other hardware.

it crashes the X on clicking a specific site. thou right-click and open in a new window does not crash the firefox (ver 2.0.0.3)
also, opening the same site with Opera works fine (which is our main browser on a kde session)

i'll try setting the video card driver manually to svga and see what happens... (tomorrow)

Unless that site is a requirement, just block it at the server using
squidguard. Then you can leave _javascript_ on.

Yes. File a bugzilla report. Since it is repeatable on your chipset and
it is a very common chipset, let the firefox devs know.
