Re: Firefox crashing on gmail



Hi Sridhar,

Does your firefox also crash on www.xilinx.com like mine?
I'm sure it does. If so, like I said in my earlier mail, we
definitely have the same problem.

After reading this thread, I searched for a solution with renewed
enthusiasm, and just now found this:
---------------------------------------
https://launchpad.net/distros/ubuntu/+source/firefox/+bug/27626
---------------------------------------
There someone mentioned that the problem occurs only with
DefaultDepth=16, not with 24bit depth. Sure enough, my xorg.conf
had "DefaultDepth 16", changed it to use 24 bit, and firefox works
normally now. In fact, I am writing this via gmail using firefox right
now.

I hope it solves your problem (although I have no idea what the reason
for the problem was or how to actually 'solve' the problem)
