Firefox is crashing every time I go to wikipedia.org and it still happens in Safe Mode, with Hardware Accel off and after a Reset.

Posted

It ties up an entire core and doesn't generate a crash report. Tested in 23.0.1 and 24beta

On further testing, the page "en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page" will load fine, but loading "www.wikipedia.org/" or "wikipedia.org/" will crash. Searching wikipedia from the firefox search-bar will crash as will searching using the form on Main_Page.

Did you check for issues caused by plugins?


In Firefox Safe mode these changes are effective:

  • all extensions are disabled
  • the default theme is used (no persona)
  • userChrome.css and userContent.css are ignored
  • the default toolbar layout is used (localstore-safe.rdf)
  • the Javascript JIT compiler is disabled
  • hardware acceleration is disabled
  • plugins are not affected
  • preferences are not affected
