Description Michal Špondr 2018-05-31 20:03:40 UTC
Some webpages keep crashing tabs after few seconds with message "Gah. Your tab just crashed." Privacy mode or even a clear profile did not help.

One of the pages which keeps crashing is https://web.whatsapp.com - it crashes in about 10-20 seconds.


If run in console I get this output after the tab crash:

[Parent 4369, Gecko_IOThread] WARNING: pipe error: Broken pipe: file /tmp/portage/www-client/firefox-60.0.1/work/firefox-60.0.1/ipc/chromium/src/chrome/common/ipc_channel_posix.cc, line 709

After that if I click Restore This Tab I get additional info:

Comment 1 Michal Špondr 2018-06-05 20:23:29 UTC
I've tried several rebuilds with different USE flags. Currently I have only these USE flags enabled and tabs (whatsapp, linkedin, google inbox ...) are crashing:

+dbus
+gmp-autoupdate
+l10n_cs
+pulseaudio
+screenshot
+startup-notification

I've removed ~/.mozilla/ directory, but tabs keep crashing.
Comment 2 Michal Špondr 2018-06-05 20:41:57 UTC
Safe Mode without extensions didn't help either. I am going back to stable Firefox 52.

According to reddit it seems a lot of users experience this behavior. https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/8khmy8/gah_your_tab_just_crashed/
Something with sandboxing maybe?

Need to know what version of mesa you have installed? Downgrading is not advised or supported unless you are gonna nuke ${HOME}/.mozilla and start completely fresh.

I've already downgraded (I have a backup of ~/.mozilla/ of course :-) and the tab crashing stopped.

Comment 5 Opportunist 2018-06-09 12:23:36 UTC
Confirm, mesa 18.1.1-r, firefox-bin-60.0, amd64
Comment 6 Michal Špondr 2018-06-27 22:33:15 UTC
It stopped crashing after I removed libav from make.conf and replaced it with ffmpeg. I also had to rebuild libeml - I am not sure if it's related.
Comment 7 zlice 2018-06-29 15:05:33 UTC
did an ebuild for firefox-bin 61.0 - way better.
had 60.1.0 for a couple days, horrible.
like others, had some other updates too, can't be sure but i'm pretty sure it was firefox-bin 60 that was to blame
