Its happening since maybe Firefox release 3.6.3.
Randomly it closes by itself. Usually I restart it, and It reopens the browser windows where I was.
Randomly it cannot start again. Usually, deleting the .mozilla directory (at home) brings it back to "life"
Randomly, ther's no "work around". Unique solucion is to delete .mozilla, remove Firefox, and reinstall

Hm, hard to guess.
Maybe some add-ons, themes or plug-ins active?

Also you could run Firefox from console and wait until crash, then you could post the error while crashing.

Regards!

Thanks, Michael

At beginning, I thought it could be some add-ons, themes or plug-ins.
At the last crashes, all was running at defaults, not even flash was installed.
A thought about some issue during the binary compilation.
I'll try to run it from console, and I'll post the error. but...
I do I run it from console?

Just open a console (gnome-terminal for example) and type in "firefox", now firefox ought start.

Thanks a lot again
So, Firefox is crashing every time I go to "preferences" and click "applications". After the second crash, it won't start again. It just happened now, while running from console. Could you tell me please, where do I find de error repport ?

Ok, I have no clue how to debug Firefox.

I tried it with gdb without success.

Have you tried to build Firefox from the Mozilla sources?

zerobug,

The Preferences -> Applications, is directly connected to the mime types. so it might be something related to it.

What is your release: testing or stable?

Your case of "is it just me?" might be because most of the people probably is using epiphany which is now based on webkit, no longer xulrunner.

EDIT: As I said, didn't know about this bug because I use opera and epiphany. It also happens to me, the main problem here is that firefox were compiled with debug disabling so that's why it shows no error when it crashes, I'll try to recompile it first enabling debug to see the errors

This might be related to a bug in zlib, which is now fixed in all paldo branches.

Thanks Juerg. I've just reinstalled Firefox and it's working fine again.
