Issue #2974 has been updated by mneumann.

Actually, X11 only starts when "force_s3tc_enable" is set to a valid value of either "true" or "false". But firefox will crash with either "true" or "false". But setting it to any other value (other than "true" or "false") will not crash firefox.

Bug #2974: firefox segfaults on certain pages unless ENV "force_s3tc_enable" is set

* Author: mneumann
* Status: New
* Priority: Normal
* Assignee: 
* Category: 
* Target version: 
When I start firefox without environment variable "force_s3tc_enable" set, it will segfault when I open up "about:support", and prints out the following warning message:

    ATTENTION: default value of option force_s3tc_enable overridden by environment.
    Segmentation fault

If I start it with "force_s3tc_enable=yes firefox" or "force_s3tc_enable=no firefox" or any other value for "force_s3tc_enable", firefox won't crash!
