Description Patrice Dumas 2008-05-21 13:41:38 UTC
Description of problem:

firefox freezes with a trace that I attach.
I still haven't understood what causes it to freeze, it seems
to be random. It doesn't really crashes, but is left with an
empty window. There is a trace on the console when firefox is 
launched on the command line. The trace is always the same.
It happens very frequently.

In the trace there are reference to hunspell, so maybe the bug
is in hunspell.

I haven't found the same bug already entered which is a bit strange,
maybe there is something in my setup that could explain that I am
the only one seeing it, but I don't know what it could be.

I tried to get a better backtrace in gdb, but when launched in
gdb (with firefox -g) there is no problem... Maybe it is because 
it is slowed down?

glibc trace associated with the freeze

Comment 2 Ralf Ertzinger 2008-05-21 16:28:25 UTC
Happens reliably for me when opening

Happens even when firefox is started in safe-mode

Comment 3 Ralf Ertzinger 2008-05-21 16:30:07 UTC
Well, bugzilla (or konqueror) munges long URLs.

So this is the same one:

workaround: downgrade your sqlite copy to 3.5.4

Comment 5 Patrice Dumas 2008-05-21 22:09:44 UTC
That didn't worked. I still get a similr trace, I attach it.

trace with sqlite 3.5.4

Comment 7 Christopher Aillon 2008-05-22 04:46:38 UTC
Er, sorry, meant to say to downgrade hunspell (which other apps will complain
about likely.. but it will fix firefox at least.)

Comment 8 Patrice Dumas 2008-05-22 07:47:58 UTC
xulrunner requires  
provided by hunspell-1.2.2, the previous version is 1.2.1 which 
provides, so xulrunner will also complain.

I can do a compat package for hunspell (parallel installable) and
rebuild xulrunner, but I am not sure it is worth it, hopefully this
bug will be fixed soon.
