Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Mozilla Firefox
firefox-3.0 (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: mozilla-firefox

(I have only tested this in 64bit)

Description: Ubuntu 8.04
Release: 8.04

  Installed: 3.0+nobinonly-0ubuntu0.8.04.1
  Candidate: 3.0+nobinonly-0ubuntu0.8.04.1
  Version table:
 *** 3.0+nobinonly-0ubuntu0.8.04.1 0
        500 hardy-updates/main Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
     3.0~b5+nobinonly-0ubuntu3 0
        500 hardy/main Packages

Steps to recreate:
Start firefox
Open a tab and go to
Log in
Close the tab (ctrl+w or by clicking the tab close 'cross')

Result: segfault.

Attached is an attempted backtrace, but I notice that there seems to be missing symbols. I followed the instructions for backtracing FF3 at and would be happy to redo this trace if someone could let me know which packages I need to install to getany missing symbols.

I've seen general instability in and around Gmail newer interface -- especially when tabs are involved. Try clicking "Older version" in the upper right of the page (near the settings link). I think this is Fx 3 only.

Oops, forgot to mention, clicking the older version link is a workaround. Sorry for the spam.

This also happens on Mac OS X and Windows XP so I filed a cross-platform bug upstream.

I can confirm that the bug is not present when using the older version gmail interface. Thanks for filing the cross-platform bug upstream - do you have a URL so I can track it?
