[K12OSN] Firefox crashes



This errors do not occur on my thick FC5/FC6 installation. I have a reproducible crash in Firefox.i386 with flash9 on my x86_64 K12LTSP5 box. I've run it through gdb using the command "/usr/lib/firefox-1.5.0.4/run-mozilla.sh --debug ./firefox-bin" and it returned the following text upon error:

The program 'Gecko' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)'.
 (Details: serial 309724 error_code 11 request_code 53 minor_code 0)
  (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
  that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
  To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
  option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
  backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

I then ran the command with "/usr/lib/firefox-1.5.0.4/run-mozilla.sh --debug ./firefox-bin --sync", with no changes, and then tried 'set args --sync' in gdb prior to running it, but either the arguments aren't taking or I'm doing something incorrectly. The only change is in the (Details line, where the second time it printed "(Details: serial 539995 error_code 11 request_code 53 minor_code 0)".

This box has 8GB RAM. At the time of the crash, I have 2.5GB of RAM free on the box. 0 swapped of course.  I don't believe the 'insufficient resources' claim ;)

Googling this message gives me the following semi-useless info:
  • "I got an error msg like that once, the "This probably reflects a bug in the program. The error was 'BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)...' and I found out the problem was with the default font I had selected to use on xchat. My user had no reading access to it, so after I fixed that it magically worked fine, as usual Very Happy"

Any suggestions for where to go from here?
