As the title says, after a certain update(I'm not sure which, probably within the last few months or so), firefox on my machine starts crashing randomly. Some crash reports: https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/bp-3c8ccdac-bf09-41af-a459-a5e0c0240204 https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/bp-a5d887f3-3d75-4e09-a4af-823a20240204 https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/bp-1cb416ff-e338-445c-9ff3-016f30240204 https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/bp-3da43a7e-5952-4715-83cf-512aa0240204 https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/bp-c6778172-5281-482b-b815-ebf840240204 https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/bp-54dd6c03-a99c-4a08-8a7c-4c80d0240204 I'm using Fedora 38 workstation, GNOME as the desktop environment, and Mutter as the wm.

Try downloading Firefox from Mozilla. Download, unzip, and run firefox-bin from the folder and see if you have the same issue. https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/#product-desktop-release X11 or Wayland? I assume you already tried running your distro version in Safe Mode?

This doesn't look to me like a distro version.

You can try to disable http3 via about:config.

  • about:config => network.http.http3.enable => false

Wondering how to let the developer team know this and fix this issue properly? I want to use those HTTP/3 features :( (though a browser that is not crashing but does not support HTTP/3 is better than a unusable crashing one)

Does it still happen with the flatpak version?

There are quite a few http3 prefs and I don't know if disabling one or more of the other http3 prefs instead of fully disabling http3 would stop the crashes.

There is a bug linked to the crash report and a GitHub link:
