I have since some time experienced firefox and thunderbird as very unstable, tabs crashing wildly but not in a very systematic way.
firefox crashes also with a clean profile
firefox crashes most often after some time of usage at random sites
thunderbird normally crashes in the background
i see this both on an old computer that has been updated since ages and on a new installed laptop
before i write a bug report with some crash traces, is this something that anybody else has seen as well ?
existing bugs seem a bit low on info i can understand and not that much seem to happen in them…
No it won’t. The updates we test are what maintainers push, so they’ve already been checked by them. However, maintainers can’t check all use cases, so we run the tools we use and also provide feedback. Updates can include regressions, so the more we can test them, the less likely “bad” ones are to get to users in the updates repository.
