Palemoon Segfault on Archlinux

Postby JoshH100 » Tue, 24 Apr 2018, 16:29

Palemoon will run for a few seconds and then segfaults.
I am using the palemoon-27.9.0.en-US.linux-x86_64.tar.bz2 binary build directly from the palemoon site. I have tried a few older versions and they also segfault. I think the last versions that worked were v26 or 27.

Using gdb to run palemoon shows:

This is on Archlinux, kernel version 4.15.15-1

I use Arch Linux 32-bit and Pale Moon almost never crashed/segfault'ed in last one year. I haven't updated my system in quite a while, so I'm still on 4.14 kernel version. My version of Pale Moon is also a little older - 27.8.1; I'm not going to install anything until 28 comes out 8-) . I use Pale Moon exclusively and it has been very stable for me in everyday use.

I've have tried versions all the way back to 24.4 and I am still getting segfaults now so it is probably related to some other archlinux package update.

64-bit Pale Moon on Arch here and been running great for years. We setup a new co-worker with Pale Moon on Arch recently and that went fine too.
Sorry I can't be of more help.

Same issues and gdb output for me as well. It's unusable. Bin or build from source (ArchLinux packages) both segfault. Tried with Intel, NVIDIA, and AMD gpus (all on x86_64).
