Hi All,

Firefox crashes every time I close it. What happens is, I close firefox then a few minutes later I get the crash report. I have tried running firefox in safe mode, still crashes. I've tried refreshing firefox, no luck. Reinstalling doesn't help. I did have to install using the file downloaded from the firefox website because the firefox I had been using from YUM kept defaulting to us canada or us hong kong dictionaries. The only way I could solve the dictionary problem was to reinstall. The problem started after a more recent install of firefox (i.e. the problem did not begin with the first non-yum related firefox install). I'm sorry I am terrible with the correct terms, I hope I'm not driving you all too crazy. I still have the problem if I run directly from the file (./usr/local/firefox/firefox). I also just re-downloaded the new version of firefox and ran directly from the downloads folder (.~/downloads/firefox/firefox) but still crashed after I closed. I've also tried to do a RAM test by running memtest86+, but everything passed.

I'm not sure if this is the correct way to link to the crash reports, but here are some of the more recent ones.

Has anyone else been having problems? I'm also opening a request with firefox, but wanted to post here just to be sure.

Thanks,
Casey

I couldn't figure out what was causing the crash from the log files. However, someone from firefox seemed to figure out the problem is related to gstreamer. I seem to have gotten the shutdown hang to stop by going to about:config and then setting

media.gstreamer.enable-blaacklist set to false
media.gstreamer.enable set to false
