Firefox crashing on startup in 16.04 rc / dev
So i installed the deb from apt repos which crashes immediately on startup.
After some digging I found:
The above bug report and a workaround with a deb from
firefox starts up, but is quite unstable....
Looks like that bug is upstream from even Ubuntu, so we'll need to wait for a fix. Thanks for the report.
Please describe the unstable behaviour? I'm looking forward to stable Firefox action on Xenial.
@tartanspartan Issues are volatile crashes when displaying websites (might be flash related)
and editing the adressbar entry causes additional (sometimes empty, sometimes mimicing the UI) firefox windows to appear....
in rare cases it even crashed the session, forcing restart of ubport UI
Also to note that most GTK apps are creating a new window when clicking on a menu and showing the entries of the menu in this window...
I did not intensively test firefox though....
Thank you, good to know. I guess I will wait for a stable fix for it to hit ARMHF builds.
@tartanspartan ANy clue how to trigger bug fix activities on this topic?
Well from that link @UniSuperBox shared it looks like the Ubuntu/Mozilla devs for ARMHF hardware are at last aware of the issue and working on it for those architectures.
