Doesn't happen on this x86_64 box. It doesn't display anything, but it does not

strace firefox 

Looks like a resource problem in X.

Comment 4 Matthias Clasen 2006-03-01 14:52:56 UTC
Jukka, you attached the gif again, not the strace

Comment 5 Jukka Ketelaars 2006-03-01 16:42:40 UTC
It looks to me like the strace is in bugzilla
( If not please
let me know and I'll upload it again. The gif is there because I pasted the
strace command as entered.

How much memory do you have, and could you post your xorg.conf?
