Description Stephen Shaw 2010-01-26 06:41:12 UTC
When trying to launch firefox 3.6 with accessibility installed and enabled crashes.  If I disable at-spi2 and relogin firefox seems to work just fine.

Here is the back trace from firefox -d gdb: http://paste2.org/p/631659

The back trace is no longer available; do you still have it? Does FF 3.6.2 crash? What about the nightly?
Comment 2 Mike Gorse 2010-06-02 13:53:03 UTC
This was fixed as of at-spi2-atk 0.3.2:

    Move cache updates to an idle
    When receiving a children-changed signal, we add a whole subtree to the
    cache, but not all of the objects have necessarily been initialized yet,
    so we may, eg, indicate in the cache that an object's role is UNKNOWN
    (see BNC#600024).
    This also fixes a crash when starting Firefox 3.6 with at-spi2.
