    Default Problem: Session immediate crash to a reboot - reproduceable when playing a video in Firefox

    My openSUSE-15.3 is crashing (with an instantaneous openSUSE reboot) a few minutes after Firefox starts playing one or more Youtube videos in full screen mode. I have produced this behaviour about a dozen times using Firefox. I believe I have seen it once, without using Firefox < not sure thou > . The laptop immediately reboots openSUSE each time this happens.

    I have not yet been able to reproduce this this behaviour when playing Youtube videos with Chrome in full screen mode. I will keep trying ...

    This is a fairly recent openSUSE install. On this install, I have experienced this behaviour with both the openSUSE-15.3 kernel-default-5.3.18 and the kernel:backport:stable-5.14.11 kernel.

    The fact that I can't reproduce the behaviour with Chrome, but can relatively easily reproduce it with Firefox makes me suspect this is not hardware.

    I don't see anything in /var/log/messages nor /var/log/warn that points to the problem (as far as I can tell). I have set the journal to be persistent and have been examining journal logs at the time of the crash. The journal logs are not consistent ... although there are some similarities ... I have extracted the last 20 lines or so before each reboot.

    One example of an unexpected reboot:

    There are MANY lines before the above, ... I have only included the last couple of dozen or so.

    I've surfed on powerdevil[1946] but I can not see any 'hints' there as to what I may have miss-configured (assuming it was me who caused this).

    Any suggestions on how to further investigate?

    I tried updating firefox from the default openSUSE-15.3 version, to the latest version in the 'multimedia' repository, but the same problem occurs. I don't believe firefox is the issue < I could be wrong > but I suspect firefox may be a catalyst to help reproduce the issue.

    In the mean time, I'll keep trying to reproduce the failure (with means other than just firefox), and collecting journal entries, to see if eventually some light on the problem is shed.

    .
    This morning I updated Firefox again, this time updating to Firefox-93.0, and I have not been able to reproduce the 'crash' but obviously, as I continue to use this Lenovo X1 Carbon gen-9 laptop (with openSUSE-LEAP-15.3), I will keep trying.

    My Firefox update this time came from a Mozilla repository:
    Code:
    https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/mozilla/openSUSE_Leap_15.3/
    Previous I had tired both MozillaFirefox-78.10.0-8.38.1.x86_64 and MozillaFirefox-78.13.0-8.49.1.x86_64.

    This morning I installed these apps:
    Code:
    MozillaFirefox-93.0-lp153.4.1.x86_64        
    mozilla-nss-3.70-lp153.1.2.x86_64         
    libsoftokn3-hmac-3.70-lp153.1.2.x86_64        
    libsoftokn3-3.70-lp153.1.2.x86_64           
    libfreebl3-hmac-3.70-lp153.1.2.x86_64     
    libfreebl3-3.70-lp153.1.2.x86_64
    As noted, with MozillaFirefox-93.0, I am struggling to reproduce the cash that I experienced earlier. Before after 2 or 3 minutes of playing a Youtube video, LEAP-15.3 would crash to a reboot. I've now been playing youtube videos for over an hour (with Firefox-93) and no crash yet.

    I will keep trying.

    Mozilla ends support for Firefox 78.x ESR line: https://wiki.mozilla.org/Release_Management/Calendar
    Now it is Firefox 91.x ESR line. Try it - you may install it from Mozilla repo together with FF 93+.
    Leap will use Firefox 91.x ESR within month.

    Try to use Mesa 3D from Experimental branch (X11:XOrg repo).
    Also you may want to perform Full repository Vendor change to X11:XOrg repo.

    Just one addition: If you want to use two separate versions of FF and thus "step back" several levels IMHO it is advisable to use separate profiles - or at least keep backups of your user profile.
    I'm syncing my profile between my desktop and laptop and sometimes, when I forget to update FF before starting it on the other machine I get that message like "you are trying to start an older version of Firefox etc.". There's also a couple of related threads in the forum. Of course that doesn't happen with every update, but if just for testing, you may wish to avoid that fuss.

    I'm patient. I'll wait until an update brings me this version.

    I think it may be something in the hardware or firmware, that makes the laptop stability more sensitive to issues. ... An application like Firefox, even if it crashes, should NOT bring down the operating system. However after installing Firefox-93.0, I am not getting any crashes/reboots (yet). I can't believe that Firefox is at fault thou, and I suspect rather that Firefox-78 simply acted as a catalyst to an existing problem.

    I have seen some differences in the journal , from when Firefox-78 lead to a crash/reboot, but Firefox-93.0 at the same point, doesn't crash but the journal gives a warning. But I could be wrong, this could be me on a wild goose chase, so I am reluctant to spam this thread with that info. I could thou - if anyone curious.

    I am tempted - but honestly - I find that a bit scary in that it really brings me out of my comfort zone.

    Until buying this Lenovo X1 Carbon Gen-9, I've almost always bought laptops much (relatively) older compared to release date, and I've very rarely gone for cutting edge software.

    I suspect for me to do such, I would need to look at the Mesa 3D change history, see if there are changes that might be relevant to my hardware, and if there were enough, I would likely take what for me is a 'gamble' and proceed to add that repos/update.

    Its funny - I've been using GNU/Linux for almost a quarter of a century - and I am still very conservative and don't take many risks.

    Ever tried Tumbleweed? On host erlangen Leap was cumbersome in 2016. Switching to Tumbleweed solved all issues. Squeezing /home and installing on a new partition involves no risks.
