Firefox 10 (from repository) crashes on Fedora 16 (x86_64)

I like it.

For the few last major releases, Thunderbird (64-bit, from default repository) was crashing on my Fedora 16 (x86_64) upon startup, I had to install 32-bit version manually.

After the last updates (Thunderbird to version 10, Firefox to version 10) Thunderbird taken from repository resumed to work, but Firefox now crashes on any action (loading a site, trying to open add-on manager).

When I run Firefox 10 x86_64 from command line, it prints this prior to crashing:

Code:
Inconsistency detected by ld.so: dl-open.c: 603: _dl_open: Assertion `_dl_debug_initialize (0, args.nsid)->r_state == RT_CONSISTENT' failed!
Has anyone witnessed something like this? I will post the bug report to the corresponding Bugzilla, but perhaps someone knows the solution.

I had to install manually Firefox 32-bit, it works fine.

Do you by chance have googletalk installed? It seems to cause issues on the 64 bit versions.

I haven't installed Google Talk explicitly.
Unless this plugin/whatever is installed as part of any package, of course.

look in ~/.mozilla/plugins/ and see if you have a file named libnpgoogletalk64.so

There's one. Shall I try to just remove it and re-try?

yep. I would just move it to another folder.

mv ~/.mozilla/plugin/libnpgoogletalk64.so ~/libnpgoogletalk64.so

That will just move the file to a different location so that firefox and thunderbird won't try to load it. But you still have the file if you need it for any reason.

I moved the file out of that directory. Nothing has changed, Firefox still crashes.

I should have had you try uninstalling the google talk plugin first.

Code:
su -
(root password)

yum remove google-talkplugin
it also has a copy in /usr/lib64/firefox/plugins I believe (along with other things)

As I've said in the irst response, I have no Google talk products installed, including google-talkplugin. Nothing to remove.

Did you check for any addon incompatibilities with Firefox 10? Mozilla did say that most addons should work - but just in case, there was an addon update that was missed.

Looks like a bug. firefox 10.0.2 might help.

In my case the offending plugin was the skype one. Removal of this allows firefox from repository to work successfully:

/usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/skypebuttons.so

Every new Firefox I try to run crashes in its bare installation.
There's one things in common where such behaviour is noticed: all the computers use LDAP authentication.
