Occasional firefox crash when re-arranging a tab which is loading

Bug Description

Firefox has been crashing semi-regularly, which appears to be associated with re-arranging a tab which is refreshing or loading. Firefox first becomes non-responsive, and then a few seconds later closes.
It is not consistent - most of the time, rearranging the tabs works fine, but it does seem these crashes occur only in association with tab rearranging.

Chris, can you please try to reproduce this and attach the crash report. There is something i want to compare between 2 diffferent crash reports on same crash problem. Also what extenstions do you have installed? What plugins do you have installed? Im gonna upload the retrace on the crash report i have gotten so far.

Time to switch back to firefox then :).

I don't have any extensions or themes installed, apart from the default theme. I've got the EN-GB dictionary installed, though. That's the only thing reported in "addons".

It might take a while to get a crash report for you - I never managed to repeatably crash firefox :(

Chris were you able to reproduce this crash with firefox?

Chris Halse Rogers (raof) wrote :

No, sorry. I haven't managed to make firefox crash at all.

I've been doing all the things that I used to do, and it hasn't crashed once. It seems to be fixed.
