Re: [K12OSN] Firefox crashes



  In the ongoing saga of FireFox crashes, unfortunately this problem still exists in FC6 and FF 1.5.0.10. Now, opening only the front page of a _javascript_ site like overstock.com will cause a 'xserver failed' crash.

If anyone can expand and add their own experiences, that would be great.

Disabling _javascript_ makes everything work. The Bummer is that the LAMP 
database I wrote for our staff uses quite a bit of _javascript_, so I 
can't turn it off for everyone. I think test #2309385 will be to update 
to v6, which (I think) has a newer xorg, gnome and metacity, and see if 
it still happens.. at least now we know the root cause.
    

Unless that site is a requirement, just block it at the server using
squidguard. Then you can leave _javascript_ on.
  
(By the way, when you say 'let them know', do you mean filing a bugzilla 
report?)
    

Yes. File a bugzilla report. Since it is repeatable on your chipset and
it is a very common chipset, let the firefox devs know. 
  
Thank you James & Jim for your help in whittling this down. I'll keep 
you posted.

Cheers,
 Michael

THAT is interesting! So the browser is crashing the display manager
during a nasty load in of _javascript_.

Test #2309384 :)

Open firefox, disable _javascript_ and try it again. If it doesn't crash,
it's a _javascript_ bug in firefox. Let them know the version and link for
the crash.

Note: many site have lousy _javascript_ that cause many problems. The real
bug is on their end.
