Comment 1 Jan "Yenya" Kasprzak 2005-06-15 09:19:02 UTC
I have observed a similar behaviour (both from Mozilla and Galeon), when
clicking to my MRTG graphs. When I click to

the page is displayed OK, but when I click to any of the graphs, the browser
crashes. I've tried to run mozilla under GDB, and got a similar trace - SIGSEGV
somewhere in Downgrade to mozilla binaries from FC3 updates makes
this problem disappear. My system is also x86_64.

Comment 2 T 2005-06-17 15:49:38 UTC
same here: fresh FC4 x86_64 install

mozilla segfaults on the 2nd or 3rd page visited, or on reload, independent of
page content. No plugins or add-ons.

the gdb backtrace is the same as above, segfault happens somewhere in
0x00002aaab1dcff0e in NSGetModule () from

this makes the 64 bit version of mozilla useless

Comment 4 Bob Richmond 2005-06-26 22:44:44 UTC
I've been bitten by this as well. It's the same upstream bug as:

I've attached a backported patch.

Comment 5 Christopher Aillon 2005-06-28 17:40:17 UTC
Thanks for tracking this down.  I'll add the patch to FC4 and rawhide soon.

*** Bug 160856 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

Comment 7 Dams 2005-07-11 19:45:06 UTC
Chris, this bug is impacting all mozilla, epiphany and galeon.

Comment 8 Christian Iseli 2007-01-22 11:22:18 UTC
This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?


Comment 9 Jan "Yenya" Kasprzak 2007-01-22 11:56:28 UTC
In FC6/i386 and x86_64, Galeon works correctly when viewing and
- so I think the bug has been fixed since then.

Comment 10 T 2007-01-22 16:09:48 UTC
the bug was fixed a long time ago with one of the mozilla updates in FC4.
