Firefox PBI crash

I'm able to crash PC-BSD just by using Firefox in PBI form. This one is weird because it seems system specific for me and I'm not sure anyone else is having same problem.

Here's forum topic:

Let me know if you need anymore info.

We have a new Firefox PBI that just got approved (version 27.0). Could you re-test with that PBI and see if this is still an issue?

Does this happen with any other PBI's?

My initial thought after reading through your forum thread is that is might be a flashplayer conflict (two instances/versions of the flash plugin trying to access the same memory) since you mention it happens only when running both Firefox AND Chromium PBI's.

Ya I was waiting for new pkg/pbis, but blog said to report any issues. I'll try it soon as it gets here. Can't get PBIs right now, you guys must be updating it.

This is only Firefox PBI, and only on my desktop?

I actually disable flash in Firefox, and use chromium for flash/media.

Here's something weird. I'm able to get the updates on my laptop, but desktop says "ERROR: Failed downloading PBI". And the PBIs are still out of date? How can I force Appcafe to update? I tried "sudo pbi_update --check-all" it didn't do anything.

This fixed itself.

Ok got the new FF PBI and so far it is working great! The crashing issue is gone. You can close this ticket, it is fixed for me.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

Glad it works for you now. I will close the ticket as "fixed".

BTW: The command to manually trigger an AppCafe? repo update is: "sudo pbid --refresh"
