Firefox version >www-client/firefox-39.0.3 suddenly crashes and it is not uncommon.

Very often this occurs while waiting for input or hit new addresses or increase the variability of use.

A set of add-ons and settings not significantly changed.

In short sharply reduced uptime browser versions: 40.0.3, 41.0-r1

Tried to include use-flag debug - work in general is practically impossible: the frequent crash, slowdown.


For versions below <=www-client/firefox-39.0.3 crash were not observed.

You are probably experiencing this bug → https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=558150
I temporarily solved this issue recompiling Firefox with USE="-system-cairo".
I enabled the system-* flags few months ago and shortly after portage upgraded to firefox-40 and I was hit by this bug...
I should have known better, when things just works... don't mess around with it!
