is it just me, or is that latest update of Minefield a little bit buggy? Ever since this morning's upgrade my browser crashes when using Gmail.

Code:
pablo@miercoles=> rpm -q firefox
firefox-3.0-0.63.cvs20080516.fc10.i386

I noticed that Fedora 9 ships with firefox-3.0-0.60.beta5.fc9.i386.rpm, so in order to get around the gmail crashing problem I attempted to "downgrade" like so:

Code:
rpm -ev firefox-3.0-0.63.cvs20080516.fc10.i386
rpm -Uvh firefox-3.0-0.60.beta5.fc9.i386.rpm


When I tried to start the "old" firefox from the command line, however, I get the following:

Code:
pablo@bocajuniors=> /usr/bin/firefox &
[1] 2770
pablo@bocajuniors=> Could not find compatible GRE between version 1.9b5 and 1.9b5.
[1]+  Exit 1                  /usr/bin/firefox


The latest greatest firefox in the BLAGHEAD RPMS.fedora repository is 3.0-0.65, but installing this fails on a dependency with xulrunner:

Code:
root@bocajuniors=> rpm -Uvh firefox-3.0-0.65.cvs20080416.fc10.i386.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
   xulrunner >= 1.9-0.65.cvs20080416.fc10 is needed by firefox-3.0-0.65.cvs20080416.fc10.i386


The current xulrunner is at 1.9-0.64. So far I haven't seen the newer version in any of the usual hiding places. This leaves me dead in the water as far as firefox goes, but in the mean time epiphany seems to be free of the crash issue I'm trying to fix. Stay tuned...

Just grabbed the latest xulrunner from the repository and applied it and the latest firefox:

Code:
root@bocajuniors=> rpm -Uvh xulrunner-1.9-0.65.cvs20080416.fc10.i386.rpm
Preparing...                ########################################### [100%]
   1:xulrunner              ########################################### [100%]
root@bocajuniors=> rpm -Uvh firefox-3.0-0.65.cvs20080416.fc10.i386.rpm
Preparing...                ########################################### [100%]
   1:firefox                ########################################### [100%]


That's the good news. Unfortunately firefox crashed again before I could complete this posting. Such is life on the bleeding edge...
