Debian Unstable: mozilla-firefox configure broken?


Woohoo my first post!!!!!


I'm running debian unstable and I do an apt-get update apt-get upgrade every morning and have had no problems until today. basically i'm getting a segmentation fault in regxpcom, and I don't know whether it's a configuration problem or a problem with the package.



Unpacking mozilla-firefox (from .../mozilla-firefox_0.8-4_i386.deb) ...
Setting up mozilla-firefox (0.8-4) ...
Updating mozilla-firefox chrome registry.../usr/sbin/update-mozilla-firefox-chrome: line 58: 2943 Segmentation fault regxpcom >/dev/null
dpkg: error processing mozilla-firefox (--configure):
subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 139
Errors were encountered while processing:
mozilla-firefox



any help would be appreciated. Or just knowing that other people are gettting the same thing would give me some comfort.

yup, I have the exact same thing now with firefox. Is it just me or are they getting sloppy with the chrome registry stuff lately? I had a similar problem last week with mozilla, where they had mixed up a couple of brackets and braces in the script, and mozilla wouldn't work anymore.

Yeah me too I forgot how I fixed it last week.

some magic combination apt-get clean apt-get remove something something



Basically I'm just running firefox out of my home dir now that I downloaded from mozilla.org.

A linux guru I often bug about this stuff said that when he got the problem this morning he just downgraded some gcc type stuff and then it worked fine.

I was able to downgrade my firefox to testing in synaptic v .8-3, which is what I was running before. Maybe it only worked because I still had firefox open when I upgraded, though.
