Firefox and Chromium are crashing on latest snapshot

Hi guys,

On the recent snapshots i cannot run neither Firefox nor Chromium.
What’s interesting running Firefox as Root works…

With firefox i get

~> firefoxExceptionHandler::GenerateDump cloned child 2573
ExceptionHandler::SendContinueSignalToChild sent continue signal to child
ExceptionHandler::WaitForContinueSignal waiting for continue signal...

And with Chromium I get

Segmentation fault (core dumped)

Trying to run firefox with gdb fails with a message that firefox is not a proper executable…
Hope some can help.


after some debugging i found the problem
It was caused by the appmenu-gtk3 package… after removing it, everything worked again.
starting chromium --debug showed a sigsegv in gtk_widget_get_type() from /usr/lib64/

hope this can help the developers to remove this issue…


Posting here won’t help report in bugzilla

It’s some sort of on-the-fly conversion utility to get old gtk apps working with the new api or something. Sounds like something you don’t want really. Isn’t installed on my system by default.
