Firefox crash after downloading video to desktop and watching

firefox (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: firefox

First, I went to and clicked a xvid movie, but firefox reported no player was installed, so I right clicked and downloaded to my desktop and played it in XINE. After watching the video for a while, rewinding, pausing, trying things in Xara Xtreme (it was open as well) and firefox in the background, it crashed and created a file named and located here:


the file is 10.7 MB, I have no way of uploading this file.

Hope this helps.

please resubmit the crash report by (double) clicking on it (e.g. using gnome file manager). Otherwise, we won't be able to process it efficiently.
