firefox on linux crashes repeatedly

Posted

about:crashes is consistently empty. But there is always a dialogbox asking me to quit or restart and if I want to tell mozilla about the crash. Once it crashed with this stacktrace:

(gdb) quit


Another time it just exited with exit code 6. But it happens repeatedly. I was first thinking that it got killed by OOM killer, since there was a big virtual machine running with 8GB associated with it, while the machine got 16GB. I'm already starting firefox by deleting LD_LIBRARY_PATH before...


Here is another stacktrace:

Chosen solution

it stopped as suddenly as it started. I assume that it was caused by our sysadmin installing OS updates remotely while I was using the machine. Or potentially by some NFS disk being full and many machines coming to a complete stop despite my home directory was not on the NFS disk in question. Sorry about all this noise!
