apport discards bugs with big crash dumps (firefox) sent over slow connections

Bug #344174 reported by Martin Olsson on 2009-03-17

Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Launchpad itself
apport (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

I've noticed around 10 times now that Firefox crashes won't get logged properly because the crash dump is so big that the HTTP session to launchpad runs into a timeout. This happens already if I have 10 tabs or more open in Firefox, which is reality means that pretty much all my Firefox crashes never makes it to Launchpad (let alone to upstream).

Timeout error
Sorry, something just went wrong in Launchpad.
We’ve recorded what happened, and we’ll fix it as soon as possible. Apologies for the inconvenience.
Trying again in a couple of minutes might work.
(Error ID: OOPS-1172D716)
