Slackware 13.1 first batch of updates - print crash on firefox and thunderbird


Well, that's about it - the firefox and thunderbird packages included on the first batch of official 13.1 updates keep crashing when I try to print a web page or an e-mail. Seamonkey, updated as well, can print as usual.

Any thoughts?

start a session from the console and then see if any errors get displayed, check your logs and see if they're providing additional details.

No error output on console.

Here's the crash report, I tried to print the default start page:

Same here except it seems it's any mozilla apps including Seamonkey ...

Started from the console I get the following error when printing:

bash-4.1$ seamonkey
/usr/lib64/seamonkey-2.0.5/run-mozilla.sh: line 131: 4782 Segmentation fault "$prog" ${1+"$@"}

Have removed all plugins and disabled most of my extensions but no go ...

And for the worst part, when I tried to downgrade firefox, thunderbird, and seamonkey (ie, reinstalling the packages on the DVD) the problem persists! How come...?

I just printed a web page and an email without incident. Did you upgrade both cups and ghostscript as well?

mlangdn,

Yes, I did upgrade cups and ghostscript, and I can print from within seamonkey. Ah, I'm on a 32-bit machine.

Same problem here on a 64-bit system.

edit: Tried the latest nightly binary distributed from mozilla.org, that one crashes on printing too.

Exclamation

I think I found the problem - I had gnome-vfs 2.24.3 installed, removed it and the printing issues were over.

Does anybody else who's had this problem has a gnome-vfs installed too?

You're right, I had gnome-vfs 2.24.2 installed and after removing it, it works.

Hey rpedrica,

I created a new account to test how firefox would behave, and the console complained something about ~/.gnome and gnome-vfs... that was the clue I needed

I believe that the real problem is that firefox and thunderbird are distributed as static binaries.

This problem does not exist on my Slackware 13.0 box with FF 3.6.6 and gnome-vfs-2.24.1.

/hoping to get a patch to apply to my slack 13.1 system soon

No problem in my 13.0 installation with gnome-vfs 2.24.1 either. It's only a problem with 13.1 for some reason.
