PaleMoon 27.9.4 segfaults in KDE4

Unread post by breadmoth » 2018-07-31, 22:53

Running Slackware 14.2 64 (non multilib), I decided to mess with KDE4 - yes Slackware hasn't adopted KDE 5 Plasma YET. Anyways, PM crashes with a segfault when about to type in a web address. I am running PM on a VM, since my actual Slackware machine does not have KDE4. I think maybe some kind of bug with KDE's library, because I do not get the same behavior in XFCE like I do with KDE4.

Ok, disregard.

Using the Oxygen theme is known to cause Pale Moon to crash; if you are experiencing crashes, and segfaults, make sure you are not using this theme; or use Alienbob's patched oxygen-gtk2; which will fix this issue.

See the help doc link above for other creative tips and workarounds.
