Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: firefox

Build identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; de; rv: Gecko/2008020710 Ubuntu/7.10 (gutsy) Firefox/
Linux willi 2.6.22-14-generic #1 SMP Tue Feb 12 07:42:25 UTC 2008 i686 GNU/Linux

I think I have an ubuntu-specific firefox package installed, but can't find its name.

Firefox does a segmentation fault on startup. I could reproduce this
with the attached user profile.

*** e = [Exception... "ServiceManager::GetService returned failure
code:"  nsresult: "0x80570016 (NS_ERROR_XPC_GS_RETURNED_FAILURE)"
location: "JS frame :: chrome://browser/content/utilityOverlay.js ::
getShellService :: line 294"  data: no]

(gecko:7946): Gtk-CRITICAL **: gtk_widget_get_parent_window: assertion
`GTK_IS_WIDGET (widget)' failed

(gecko:7946): Gdk-CRITICAL **: gdk_window_is_viewable: assertion `window
!= NULL' failed

(gecko:7946): Gtk-CRITICAL **: gtk_widget_get_parent: assertion `GTK_IS_WIDGET (widget)' failed
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

I don't know where to find the core dump. I could start firefox again
after tidying up the prefs.js.
