    This bug has moved on a bit. As reporter I've been asked to provide some
    debug info. I don't know how to do that so I'd appreciate a few pointers.

    You can see what the Moz guys want in the bug report:
    https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=422916#c12

    I understand that "install symbols for libc,..." means install an
    instrumented version of libc etc, and I think that means installing the
    -debuginfo packages. Is that right? Where do I get these for *10.2* The
    ones referred to in http://en.opensuse.org/Bugs:An_application_crashed
    don't match the version numbers of libc, etc - I assume I need earlier ones.

    While wondering about that I ran, as suggested,
    ~/downloads/firefox_beta/firefox> ./run-mozilla.sh -g -d gdb firefox-bin

    Extract from the output:
    ....
    [Thread debugging using libthread_db enabled]
    [New Thread -1235683088 (LWP 14072)]
    ....
    <5 other threads start and finish>
    Cannot find user-level thread for LWP 14072: generic error
    (gdb) c
    Continuing.
    Cannot fetch general-purpose registers for thread -1235683088: generic error
    (gdb) c
    Continuing.
    Cannot fetch general-purpose registers for thread -1235683088: generic error
    And so on.

    Googling on this error I find it's quite common - but no suggested
    fixes. And ideas?

    Found the repositories here
    http://en.opensuse.org/Package_Repositories#Debug
    But most -debuginfo packages (gtk2, glibc, cups) won't install: version
    different to installed version
    Eg gtk2 is 2.10.6-24.2 gtk2-debuginfo is 2.10.6-13
    Are updated versions available anywhere?
    Anyway, gdb still fails as above. What next?
