[SOLVED] GLib's FAM Module May Cause Stability Issues in Firefox

It recently came to our attention that with the Core 9 update, Firefox suffered from stability issues. Firefox plugins may often crash, and browser tabs could crash when dragging and dropping objects. We have since identified that FAM (File Access Monitoring) module in GLib led to the aforementioned issues, but we have yet to pin point the cause. Considering the upstream has removed the module, we chose to workaround said issue by turning the FAM module off.

glib v2.70.2-1, which includes the fix for the issue, will soon become available from the stable repository.
