Fedora :: Firefox Crashing All Time

Dec 20, 2010

Recently firefox has been crashing on me like crazy. I'm on Fedora 14 with the latest repo firefox version. Running firefox with the "-safe" flag doesn't help nor did reinstalling firefox using "yum reinstall firefox". According to ABRT every crash is due to: "Process /usr/lib/firefox-3.6/firefox was killed by signal 11 (SIGSEGV)". When run from root in terminal via "sudo firefox" with and without "-safe" after crashing the message returned to terminal reads: "/usr/lib/firefox-3.6/run-mozilla.sh: line 131: 2*** Segmentation fault (core dumped) "$prog" ${1+"$@"}". The stars after 2 (I.e. "2***") are to indicate different numbers. On one run they were "2406" and on another "2538". Recently, in all instances firefox crashes right after attempting to navigate to a website (I've tried many - there is no correlation between what website I go to and if it crashes). Previously, when firefox was crashing less frequently, it occurred intermittently and wasn't correlated to any action I took.

Red Hat / Fedora :: System Time Jumps, Applications Crashing?

Oct 17, 2010

I run a mostly untouched CentOS server, nothing is installed except a server app to store data. The server has been crashing lately - after a year of no problems, so I looked into the logs of it and noticed weird discrepancies in the time around the time it crashs. So I started "watch date >> datefile" and this is what happens:

Code: Sun Oct 17 09:52:45 CEST 2010
Sun Oct 17 09:52:47 CEST 2010

Ubuntu :: Firefox Addon Invisible Hand Is Crashing Firefox?

Im using firefox version 3.6.12 and it functions fine. However when i use the latest version of this addon https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...11377/#reviews the screen goes grey and firefox crashes. Restarting firefox only results in more crashes. I had a older version of this addon-1.5 i believe that worked fine.

Ubuntu :: 10.04 Crashing All The Time?

Sep 9, 2010

I have Ubuntu 10.04 32bit on two machines and the one my parents has been crashing/having other issues a lot (the other is fine). I build my own PCs, and this one I built for my parents as a budget build as they basically use the internet and upload photos, that's it. It's got an AMD 64 3800+ processor, a GeForce 8400GS, 1 Gig of Corsair DDR2 (this passed 8 hours of memtest), an ASUS M2A-VM mobo and a 320GB WD HDD.

The crashes initially and may still be, GUI/graphics related. The biggest problem is they would boot up the system and there would be no GUI, it just never loaded so they would hard reboot. The other thing that would happen, when it went into screensaver mode, moving the mouse wouldn't bring up the password prompt, it wouldn't do anything just leave a black screen with no mouse, it would lead to a hard restart. These problems initially occurred on an older HDD that used to have windows xp on it that my parents loaded with viruses. Of course that HDD had been reformatted for Ubuntu, but I felt that it was damaged and these problems were related so I went and got a new Western Digital one for them and installed it with fresh installs of Ubuntu 10.04 (and a dual boot of Windows 7) but these crashing issues have persisted.

I found a fix on here that had me "force" the GUI to load each time via the terminal, which seems to have worked somewhat and the GUI loads more often. However, every now and then on boot up, parts of the GUI do not load and a window pops up asking that I delete elements from the panel. Again, this leads to a restart, except now sometimes when it reboots it gets to a DOS prompt (sorry, old windows user) of sorts that asks for a system password, when entered, nothing happens and requires another hard restart. These restarts tend to happen in chains leading to DOS prompt a faulty GUI or a GUI with missing elements.

There are also other general issues. Periodically desktop icons won't launch programs and or menu items will not load programs when selected, just nothing happens. When browsing the net with Opera or trying to open the recycle bin, the screen will just go black.I also messed around with the built in Nvidia Driver finder tool under system - administration-hardwaredrivers, tried the recommended and not recommended drivers, no difference. I've booted into recovery mode on the grub menu tried fixing and updating things via the menu options, still get one of the above issues.This system is up to date with system updates as well. I'm not sure what else to do, but I still have a sinking suspicion this is caused by some kind of graphics driver problem or maybe a problem with that graphics card in particular! I've installed Ubuntu fresh on this machine 3 total times, the latest install only last month when I created a dual boot with Win7.

Slackware :: Flash Player Crashing All The Time In X86_64 ?

Mar 28, 2011

i was having severe problems under slackware64-current with the adobe flash player plugin for firefox. browsing and watching videos on videos was a pain in the neck with the player crashing when opening a couple of tabs, and constant lockups for several seconds while the plugin wrapper that was running it was taking one cpu core for itself.

it seems the problem stems from a recent change in glibc that modified the memcpy implementation and caused a bit of havok in some packages. i'm guessing it's the same change (or a similar one) that caused problems with sysklogd and iptraf, among others, with strcpy and overlapping strings. remember the patches:


strictly speaking, those are problems in the program source code, but most people seem to think it's a bad idea to provide a memcpy that doesn't work for overlapping strings. a bit of discussion can be found here, with a few priceless comments by torvalds:


it seems the source code for the flash player plugin probably contains this bug, as manually modifying the libflashplayer.so binary to replace memcpy calls with memmove calls fixes the problems. at least it clearly did for me.

a quick recipe can be extracted from that bugzilla entry and one of its attachments.

for example:


that should modify the binary in place provided it's located at ~/.mozilla/plugins. the resulting binary is not distributable but the recipe is.

OpenSuse 11.4, 64-bit, using LXDE (but with KDE also installed. The system updated Firefox to version 6 yesterday, but now Firefox keeps crashing.I don't see anything in any logs, nor is there anything in the ~/.mozilla/firefox/Crash Reports directory.When I restart Firefox, sometimes it asks if I want to restart the lost sessions, sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes I have Firefox in the background, and I'm not even using it, and it will crash.Is there some other information I could grab? GPU Accelerated Windows 0/1. Blocked for your graphics driver version. Try updating your graphics driver to version <NOT Gallium> or newer.

Software :: Firefox Keeps Crashing - With X Server?

Feb 20, 2010

For quite some time now, firefox has been crashing randomly. At first I thought it was the flash plugin, which was actually part of the program, but then I renamed the whole .mozilla/firefox directory, thus causing it to start fresh with no plugins or extensions. Firefox continued to crash, and in fact, now it seems worse. Now it will crash normally within about 2 minutes of having been started, and it will crash even if I don't do anything. If I just start it and leave it on the firefox start page, it will crash.

If I run it from the command line, I get this error when it crashes:


I am using X.org version

Firefox keeps crashing when I try to play video. It used to crash when I used old version 3.0 and it still crashes now in the 3.5 version.

It doesn't seem to have been a hard drive problem..I have enough space and memory.

With regard to addons, I have java and shockwave flash...and an addon for weather....though i have noticed it used to crash before I had installed any of those..

Ubuntu :: Firefox & Chromium Crashing With Flash?

Jul 16, 2011

After updating to Natty Narwhal, Chromium began to occasionally crash, with the screen going black except for the mouse,which would freeze seconds later. Any sound playing will loop the last second or so, and no keyboard commands have any effect. As far as I can tell only a hard restart works.

The exact same thing happens with Firefox as well, except that Firefox freezes with the screen image, not blackness.

It is not consistent, but has been getting more frequent, and I have noticed a pattern of the crashes being associated with paying Flash video, and is almost certain with such.

I have tried updating Flash, Chromium, and running the Update manager roughly daily for a while now.

I can follow instructions well and usually actually understand what you're talking about.

Fedora :: Try To Go Back To Add The Bug Report To This Post, Firefox Crashes, Every Single Time?

I'm running F 13 and today's updates included updates to Xorg, so I logged out and back in to let them take effect. Ever since then, Firefox has been repeatedly crashing, especially on certain sites. I managed to get the crash reporting tool to report it to Bugzilla, but when I try to go back to add the bug report to this post, Firefox crashes, every single time. Has anybody else found this? If somebody can get to bugzilla.redhat.com and find the report (The email address I use there is joe@zeff.us if it helps.)

Ubuntu :: All Applications Crashing - Firefox, Thunderbird, Opera, OpenOffice?

Jul 13, 2010

For a couple of weeks, I have had constant crashes of all my applications on Lucid:Thunderbird 3.1 (updated since crashing started using Ubuntuzilla)Firefox 3.6.6 (updated since crashing started using Ubuntuzilla) - also crashes in safe mode OpenOffice 3.2 Opera 9.63 Most frequently it is Firefox and Thunderbird crashing, because they're the applications I use most. (Also F-Spot has crashed, but F-Spot frequently crashed before all this, so may not be related).

Sometimes applications will run for a few hours and then crash (either suddenly close or freeze, it varies). Other times the application crashes before it even opens, and I just get the Mozilla crash reporter. If an application won't start at all, it will usually start if I restart the computer, but may crash again soon afterwards. There is no obvious pattern to when it crashes - sometimes on starting, sometimes when I click something, sometimes when I'm not even at the computer and I just come back to find it crashed.

My husband (a programmer) has run Memtest on my machine, which found no problems. He is also running lucid on the same hardware apart from the monitors, and has the same versions of OpenOffice, Thunderbird and Firefox except for extensions, but has not any problems. A warning that shows on the terminal if Firefox crashes in safe mode, is:

WARNING: pipe error: Broken pipe: file /builds/slave/linux_build/build/ipc/chromium/src/chrome/common/ipc_channel_posix.cc, line 627
WARNING: pipe error (3): Connection reset by peer: file /builds/slave/linux_build/build/ipc/chromium/src/chrome/common/ipc_channel_posix.cc, line 404

This is strange because I did not, when that warning first appeared, have Chromium installed (although I did have Picasa). My husband installed Chromium on my machine after seeing the warning and Chromium is running okay so far but other applications are still crashing.
