Hello!

I have problem with randomly crashing Firefox 62.0 or single tabs in
this browser on 64-bit Arch Linux system. Running Firefox in safe mode
doesn't help. Resetting browser or removing folder ~/.mozilla still
doesn't help. Any ideas how to fix this issue?

Cheers,
Hubert Hauser.

Hi,

Maybe you can find something in the logs

journalctl -qb /usr/bin/firefox

Hello!

journalctl -qb /usr/bin/firefox returns nothing.

Here's output after running firefox from command line:

Hi,

Firefox 62.0 runs fine on my Arch system.

Though I once encountered a similar issue as you describe.
I didn't allocate enough space for shared memory (/dev/shm) and that caused then such crashes.

In your case seems the 2 firefox child instances cannot communicate with the parent instance through a pipe.

Maybe worth checking the shared memory.

Harm-Jan Zwinderman

Hello!

How is your recommended space for shared memory (/dev/shm)? Will be
these instructions okay
(https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=68434)? How many memory is

One last observation from my side.
That segment /dev/sr0 seems to be full.
Is that ok ?

Do you get core dumps? Try doing running coredumpctl (possibly with
root rights). Of course, probably the backtraces would not be useful
without the debugging symbols.

nothing helps
Some more things to try:

* Test with a standard (non-Hardened) kernel, and with linux-lts.
* Uninstall and reinstall Firefox and check there's no filesystem
corruption.
* Test with Beta, Developer and Nightly versions, from the repos and
direct from Mozilla.
* Test using a live installer environment ("Live CD") which has Firefox
62 available.
* Test your RAM.
* Check your temperatures and clean out your machine.

These should let you narrow down the cause somewhat.

However, I suspect a newer FF version will have already fixed this; I
had a few weeks of FF Nightly frequently crashing a couple of months ago
(so that was probably 62a1). IIRC the output was the same as
Post by Hubert Hauser via arch-general
$ firefox
ExceptionHandler::GenerateDump cloned child 14579
ExceptionHandler::SendContinueSignalToChild sent continue signal to child
ExceptionHandler::WaitForContinueSignal waiting for continue signal...

Hello

I have in my fstab size=192m.

But to check just start firefox in one shell window and check in another shell window with df whether there is enough space in /dev/shm.

Hi,
Maybe you can find something in the logs
journalctl -qb /usr/bin/firefox
     Hello!
     I have problem with randomly crashing Firefox 62.0 or single
tabs in
     this browser on 64-bit Arch Linux system. Running Firefox in
safe mode
     doesn't help. Resetting browser or removing folder ~/.mozilla
still
     doesn't help. Any ideas how to fix this issue?

Hi!

But to check just start firefox in one shell window and check in
another shell window with df whether there is enough space in /dev/shm.
Space in /dev/shm is enough. Here's my observations:

tmpfs                      1.0G   56K  1.0G   1% /dev/shm
tmpfs                      1.0G   56K  1.0G   1% /dev/shm

And during crash:

tmpfs                      1.0G   20M 1005M   2% /dev/shm
tmpfs                      1.0G   20M 1005M   2% /dev/shm

ExceptionHandler::SendContinueSignalToChild sent continue signal to child
ExceptionHandler::WaitForContinueSignal waiting for continue signal...

The first step, before you could fix something, would be
troubleshooting. Firefox is broken for me, too, but IMO troubleshooting
a Firefox issue isn't worth the effort, since there are many browsers
available, that are less painful, than Firefox ever was.

If safe-mode and/or a new profile don't make a difference, for testing
purpose consider to run Firefox by a new added user (clean caches,
default WM theme etc.).

Chances are good, that on a system were Firefox fails, that Pale Moon
fails, too. I dislike to recommend a replacement browser for another
browser, however, it might be worth to take a look at Falkon. Btw.
IceCat seems not to suffer from the same issues as Firefox does, but it
has got a lot of oddities. Depending on the user's needs a browser that
does not follow that much a Firefox alike approach, might be an
alternative, too. QupZilla was much better than Firefox, but the last
versions of QupZilla started failing, after becoming Falkon, it doesn't
fail anymore, but lost some of the QupZilla magic. Btw. a QupZilla
profile could be used with Falkon, too.

I'm a long-time Firefox user that upgrades packages most days and
haven't had any problems with the upgrade from 61.0.2-1 to 62.0-1 on
2018-09-06. I suspect there are many like me so Hubert should probably
persevere with trying to give Mozilla enough detail for a diagnosis.

Is there a particular site (or sites) that it crashes on?

No.
Then this thread is pretty useless without a crash report or a way to
reproduce the error since it works for a lot of us. I just see a whole
bunch of replies recommending other browsers and deriding firefox and
not anything constructive.
