FS#327 - [firefox-] crashes in VMware virtual machine at startup

This is pentium4 related problem. Firefox crashes on startup with following messages:

ExceptionHandler::GenerateDump cloned child 814
ExceptionHandler::SendContinueSignalToChild sent continue signal to child
ExceptionHandler::WaitForContinueSignal waiting for continue signal...

Screenshot. Firefox folder after crash.

Temporary solution is to change in /etc/pacman/conf


, delete firefox for pentium4 from pacman cache and reinstall firefox

firefox-111.0.1 is available now, at least for the pentium4 sub-architecture
(i686 has new issues in SIMD code in webadio, so not done yet). Maybe the
new version shows better behaviour on vmware?

Actual firefox version is 114.0.2 and I can confirm - it works in VMware. Case can be closed.
