    Default Thunderbird crashes on about every post I send on nntp

    I'm desperate.

    Almost every post I send via nntp, my thunderbird crashes. And I use
    these forums via nntp, so that's a lot of crashes.

    I have sent 69 automated reports upstream, nobody does a thing.

    I have a bugzilla opened
    ( Bugzilla
    #825339
    ) They say that is is some other library, libgdk-x11 the
    culprit. I don't care, it is Thunderbird that crashes.

    I have supplied a gdb backtrace.

    I have supplied an strace.

    And still I get no solution! :-/

    Can somebody do something, please?

    What exactly would anyone here be able to do, do you imagine?

    If the problem is in the libgtk-x11, then either you need a newer or
    older version of that library, and/or you need to report a bug on that
    library....

    I don't know!

    Maybe some one knows something that can be done that I don't know about.

    I don't have any package of that name installed. What I have is
    libgdk_pixbuf-2_0-0-2.26.5-3.1.1.x86_64, and it has not been updated, it
    is the same as on release time.

    Or you mean this:

    Code:
    Telcontar:~ # rpm -qf /usr/lib/libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0
    libgtk-2_0-0-32bit-2.24.18-2.4.2.x86_64
    Telcontar:~ #
    This one has a previous version. Downgrading immediately!

    Code:
    Telcontar:~ # rpm -qa | grep libgtk-2
    libgtk-2_0-0-2.24.14-2.1.1.x86_64
    libgtk-2_0-0-debuginfo-2.24.14-2.1.1.x86_64
    libgtk-2_0-0-32bit-2.24.14-2.1.1.x86_64
    Telcontar:~ #

    It looks as if you posted that with nntp, so I guess things improved.

    Otherwise, you could try installing "knode" as an alternative nntp client.

    The last time that I used it was back with opensuse 11.0.
    openSUSE Leap 15.1; KDE Plasma 5;

    Indeed :-)

    I have posted 10 times since I downgraded that library, no more crashes.

    Yes, i was thinking of doing something of the sort, but Thunderbid,
    although lacking on some things, has the set of features that most
    approaches what I want. I mean, I have tested several programs, all of
    them have things I want, and all do things I do not want. The one with
    the best set is Thunderbird, but... those crashes were maddening.
