mozilla-firefox gtk menu broken


I've got hit with this bug https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1313061

Happens all the time, right click on any image, page or hyperlink and the menu opens which contains every possible option that exists in firefox.
Doesn't happen with binary, only when compiled 45.x from source. Clean profile, no addons at all, safe mode doesn't matter.
Another bug in 45.x is the build starts fine and passes all the checks, but later fails for no apparent reason just when it's about to end if --disable-printing is passed.

Note that 38.8 version is not affected by any of this, and the SlackBuild I'm using is exactly the same.

I'm not going to dig into this any further so I've just wiped it from the system, I've already wasted too much time trying to repair it, presuming it was my fault.

Not knowing which exact version you tried, what we can do with this report?

Just out of curiosity, why not just use mozilla-firefox-45.6.0esr that was released for us Slackers yesterday? Did you try to build it yourself with Slackware's SlackBuild?

Got menu bug in 45.5.1 and 45.6.0esr. the other one with --disable-printing in 45.5.1 but I removed that option when I've found someone on bugzilla reported it's causing build failure.

Frankly I don't use it at all, but I do compile, so that I know exactly what to expect on next gnu-icecat release which follows esr channel.
As I suspected, I've run into exact same menu problem with icecat 45.5.1 while 38.8 works fine.
I build with Slackware's mozilla-firefox.SlackBuild for 45.6, my $OPTIONS list is somewhat different but it's irrelevant since 38.8 builds and works fine with the same build options.
What I figured is that upstream must have bumped the linux build requirements between 38 and 45 so that certain optional deps are now required, but conveniently forgot to document these changes.
I'm aware it's mozilla problem not a slackware problem, just thought that maybe someone else had the same result.

I'm using firefox 45.6.0 in slackware64. In yahoo mail, I can empty my inbox and then yahoo tries to play a video in the empty folder area. The video will start to play, but then firefox will segmentation fault. It does a segmentation fault every time I login to yahoo mail and my inbox is empty and a video starts playing for a moment before the segmentation fault.

Anyone else have this problem?

It's possible that installing ffmpeg could fix this issue. If it does, please report back.

I already had ffmpeg-2.8.7-x86_64_custom-1_SBo installed, but I just now rebuilt it and reinstalled it (no optional features, just the plain/default build).

Reinstalling ffmpeg did NOT fix this issue for me... Yahoo mail still makes firefox segmentation fault. When I login to Yahoo mail, Yahoo mail successfully starts to play a video in the empty Inbox folder, but then firefox continues to load urls in the background and suddenly segfaults. The Status-4-Evar extension lets me see that urls are loading very rapidly for about a second after the video starts, and then the segfault happens.

I'm on slackware64 14.2 (multilib) with all the patches. I run kernel 4.4.38, built from my own old .config, based closely on the slackware64 14.2 generic config.

Tried again with icecat-45.5.1 and got the menu thing fixed, so I'll mark this solved.
It could've been something with stale xml files (search engines) from previous build, or --disable-webapp-runtime flag.
I think it was the latter, but compiling it takes a long time so I won't repeat the build just to make sure which flag caused it.

Anyway, these work for now:
Code:
OPTIONS="\
  --prefix=/usr \
  --libdir=/usr/lib${LIBDIRSUFFIX} \
  --with-default-mozilla-five-home=/usr/lib/icecat-$RELEASEVER \
  --enable-official-branding \
  --enable-default-toolkit=cairo-gtk2 \
  --enable-system-pixman \
  --enable-system-hunspell \
  --enable-system-ffi \
  --with-system-libevent \
  --with-system-libvpx \
  --with-system-zlib \
  --with-system-bz2 \
  --with-system-nss \
  --with-system-nspr \
  --with-system-icu \
  --enable-crypto \
  --enable-svg \
  --enable-canvas \
  --enable-webm \
  --disable-dbus \
  --disable-gamepad \
  --disable-gconf \
  --disable-gnomevfs \
  --disable-gstreamer \
  --disable-pulseaudio \
  --disable-pedantic \
  --disable-mailnews \
  --disable-composer \
  --disable-accessibility \
  --disable-profilesharing \
  --disable-maintenance-service \
  --disable-system-extension-dirs \
  --disable-installer \
  --disable-crashreporter \
  --disable-updater \
  --disable-ldap \
  --disable-logging \
  --disable-pdfjs \
  --disable-eme \
  --disable-webrtc \
  --disable-webspeech \
  --disable-necko-wifi \
  --enable-strip \
  --enable-cpp-rtti \
  --disable-debug"
These break the build:

Code:
#  --disable-printing \
#  --enable-system-cairo \
#  --enable-system-sqlite \
#  --with-system-png \
@twy I suspect it's the plugin fault. Can't help you with that, I don't use any plugins and it never segfaults here.
