I'm not sure is this a good place to report firefox problem, but I did not find too much Linux version discussion at official forum of firefox.
Is there anybody experience frequent crash of firefox 1.0.3 on slack-current (with 184.108.40.206 kernel)? I have tried official firefox build as well as slack-current package, both of them crash frequently. I have to switch back to 1.0.2 in the end, but those glaring security problems makes me worry. The windows version on my office PC is fairly stable though.
Firefox and Mozilla Suite have always crashed on me. The reason though seems to be connected to the xine-mozilla plugin I use for streaming radio. Other than that, they never crash doing anything else.
I just have a good read of the talk-back crash report of firefox 1.0.3, it turns out 1.0.3 crashes on 2.6.x kernel most frequently. Here's the topmost platforms in 314 crashes (I copied it from that report):
Distribution: None (Linux doesn't support my basic hardware)
I'm running Slackware current and Firefox was incredibly unstable for me. Actually recently stopped supporting it and switched to Konquerer. I have a lot of reasons not to use Firefox but the stability was a major issue for me. The crashes became a major issue with 1.0.3 like they have for you. I'm running 2.4.29 though.
I for certain know that some of thew themes are real FF killers. A couple of version back I remember that Whitehart, platinun and saferfox expanded caused frequent crashes on trivial things like openin contect menus. All theme errors ive encountered were GTK related.
Crashers, are you running any extensions, plugins or themes?
