Description

I had a random segfault in Tor Browser 3.5. Sorry I can't provide more details, as I am in no position to debug Firefox. I thought it might be worth reporting anyway, though.

(firefox:24114): Gtk-WARNING : Attempting to store changes into `$HOME/.tor-browser-en/INSTALL/.local/share/recently-used.xbel', but failed: Failed to create file
'$HOME/.tor-browser-en/INSTALL/.local/share/recently-used.xbel.YPXNAX': No such file or directory

.tor-browser-en/INSTALL/start-tor-browser: line 219: 24114 Segmentation fault (core dumped) ./Browser/firefox -no-remote -profile Data/Browser/profile.default
Tor Browser exited abnormally. Exit code: 139

From what I can tell, ~/.tor-browser-en/INSTALL/.local does not even exist, much less .local/share/. I'm guessing that's why it failed to create the file, but there's probably a better way to handle the situation than a segfault.

I can't really reproduce it, either. I was just downloading a file and watching a video, nothing out of the ordinary. It's the first time it's happened.
