Firefox, other 'zilla's keep crashing in 13/Current; how to fix?


Well, I been having this issue for weeks now

Basically, I open Firefox, Swiftfox, Icecat or any other mozilla
like browser on any of my Slackware Current systems
and it sooner or later crashes with following error

Code:
/opt/swiftfox/run-mozilla.sh: line 131:  1943 Segmentation fault      "$prog" ${1+"$@"}
the error is same with all
here is /opt/swiftfox/run-mozilla.sh

Code:
########################################################
moz_run_program()
{
	prog=$MOZ_PROGRAM
	##
	## Make sure the program is executable
	##
	if [ ! -x "$prog" ]
	then
		moz_bail "Cannot execute $prog."
	fi
	##
	## Run the program
	##
	"$prog" ${1+"$@"}
	exitcode=$?
}
#####################################################

Firefox, others only crash in Current, not stable slackware
nor on my 12.2 setup

Anyone got ideas how to fix or why its doing this??

Thanks

Hi -

This is an old thread, but it definitely sounds applicable:

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...-fault-212180/

SUGGESTIONS:
1. Do an strace on Firefox (like the thread above)
2. In one case above, the problem was permissions on /dev/zero
3. In another case (same thread), it was permissions on /usr/local/share/fonts/ttfonts
4. In either case, "strace" should help you identify what Firefox was trying to do (e.g. which file/directory it was trying to read) just before it crashed.

'Hope that helps .. PSM

Could also be a plug-in.
