Firefox works highly unstable since some time. I disappears randomly,
and finally I found how to make it crash reliably. Go to
https://build.opensuse.org, click on All Projects, clear Exclude user
home project - firefox disappears.

What is weird - it does it only when started via GNOME shell
(favorites or search). It does not crash when started directly from
terminal.

After install 50+ debug packages and attaching gdb I finally got zero
useful information:

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
0x00007f4008b512f6 in ?? ()
(gdb) bt
#0 0x00007f4008b512f6 in ?? ()
#1 0x00007f3fec5ab9c0 in ?? ()
#2 0x00007fff4508e2c8 in ?? ()
#3 0x0000000000000000 in ?? ()
(gdb)

(all debug packages requested by gdb are installed).

This likely would make bug report pretty pointless :(

Am I the only one?

MozillaFirefox-translations-common-26.0-4.2.x86_64
MozillaFirefox-26.0-4.2.x86_64
MozillaFirefox-debuginfo-26.0-4.2.x86_64
MozillaFirefox-branding-openSUSE-21-2.1.2.x86_64

Looks like nVidia drivers issue

https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=858421

For the record - I currently use driver 319.82 where problems do not
occur (I hesitate to say "fixed" :) ) Other users on nVidia forums
report that drivers 331.38 do not have this problem either.
