firefox crashes

on someweb pages, firefox will just crash. i've noted that slashdot crashes a lot.  these crashes occur on all 'Gecko' browsers (epiphany, galeon and firefox), but not on dillo.  Here's the error:

The program 'Gecko' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)'.
  (Details: serial 85 error_code 8 request_code 148 minor_code 3)
  (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
   that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
   To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
   option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
   backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

Oh boy.  And Firefox 1.0 has the same problems...
I'm running an up to date system even with release 3 of xorg

Re: firefox crashes

is it the same with xfree? if it is just xorg then it may be time to hit the ol' google search buttons smile as this may be something upstream (and there may be some patches the arch devs can apply to fix it).

I've seen this before, on Gentoo when I compiled my own version of Firefox. Possibly the flashplugin is compiled with another version of GCC leading to problems with Firefox :?

Re: firefox crashes

I fixed it!  You need this environment variable:
export XLIB_SKIP_ARGB_VISUALS=1
Any ideas of what that does?

Re: firefox crashes

Well... before finding out what that variable does...
We should find out in what package that should be put (what is it related to) and what packages it will affect.

Hmm.. it seems it's a freedesktop.org bug (I think xorg): http://freedesktop.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=1145
The variable needs to be documented.

Re: firefox crashes

From what I've read on xorg mailing lists, only flash plugin is affected

Re: firefox crashes

Then, maybe that env variable should be put in the flash package file.
Or... a better solution: Flash/xorg should be fixed.

I filed a bug report, I hope it gets fixed soon.

I'm sure it will be fixed in the next release of flash/mozilla
