Eclipse ADT Fatal Error on Linux

The Eclipse IDE that comes bundle with Android Development Tools (ADT) crashes when run on my laptop running Fedora.

ADT

The error message which logged to console is:

#
# A fatal error has been detected by the Java Runtime Environment:
#
#  SIGSEGV (0xb) at pc=0x0000003cc2270061, pid=9653, tid=140330452297472
#
# JRE version: Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (7.0_55-b13) (build 1.7.0_55-b13)
# Java VM: Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (24.55-b03 mixed mode linux-amd64 compressed oops)
# Problematic frame:
# C  [libsoup-2.4.so.1+0x70061]  soup_session_feature_detach+0x11
#
# Failed to write core dump. Core dumps have been disabled. To enable core dumping, try "ulimit -c unlimited" before starting Java again
#

Fortunately, there’s a way to fix this problem by opening ‘eclipse.ini’ file, in my case:

vim /opt/adt-bundle-linux-x86_64-20131030/eclipse

and added this line to the end of that file:

-Dorg.eclipse.swt.browser.DefaultType=mozilla
