Re: [orca-list] Firefox & orca crashing

Hash: RIPEMD160

You mention some interesting steps to get your crash.  I also got a
similar crash a week or so ago while adding a bookmark.  Here is what
I was doing and it broke several times for me.

2. Press Ctrl-D which will open the add bookmark dialog.
3. Now tab to the button that "Shows all folders"
4. Navigate around in this folder list and choose a place to save the

It is somewhere in this sequence where Orca dies! Sorry, I can't
remember exactly where this occurs but following the above steps
should cause some trouble.  If I go into the Organize bookmarks dialog

that route for storing my bookmarks for the time being until we figure
something out.

the address bar.

can't remember where I put this bookmark.  I've created a folder called
computer within my bookmarks list.  As soon as I step to the right.  It
crashes reading part of the first bookmark in the computing folder.
Funny, above the computing folder is a disability folder.  I can
traverse this tree ok and step to the left out of it ok.

I go to a terminal and run /etc/init.d/gdm stop then /etc/init.d/gdm

I log back in and run iceweasel and press restore previous session and
so we go around the loop again.

As you've probably gathered.  This is a debian system updated this
testing distribution yesterday 27 Sep 09.

It's a pain I'd like to see this video. Oh well! <sigh>



four kinds of freedom, for the users of the software:

    * The freedom to run the program, for any purpose (freedom 0).
    * The freedom to study how the program works, and adapt it to your

    * The freedom to redistribute copies so you can help your neighbor

    * The freedom to improve the program, and release your improvements
