OS 11.3 stock can valgrind firefox without any issues but once I installed all available updates I can no longer run valgrind on firefox, I just get the error at the end of this email. Does anyone know what package update caused this issue? I really don't want to have to reinstall *again* to fix this. I can't work without valgrind ;)

What version of FF are you Using ? Also, iiuc it will relate to the set of operations that you want to debug. So, please share your operations.
With my 11.3 + Updates, I am able to valgrind both FF3 and FF4 succesfully without any issues, if all I am doing is just launching the browser, goto a url, open/close few tabs.
May be it is a better idea to ask this in the valgrind list if we know the steps to reproduce ?
