    Question Firefox crashes all the time

    Hello,

    Have you seen firefox crashing recently ?
    Mine crashes all the time when i try to open that kinf of pages :
    Le Figaro - Le Talk : Mailly : «faire des grèves à répétition n'est pas efficace»

    is this due to firefox or flash-player package ?


    i'm using the following version on os 11:
    Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; fr; rv:1.9.0.1) Gecko/2008070400 SUSE/3.0.1-7.2 Firefox/3.0.1

    Thanks for your ideas

    I had the same problem. I thought FF 3 was absolutely awful for that reason, plus it seemed a lot slower. Plus I don't like the bookmark system.

    I was surprised I did not hear more complaints, but maybe it works OK for some people, just not me.

    I switched back to the 2.0.0.15 version and it works fine.

    and it works just fine. I suggest you rename your .mozilla profile for testing purposes and check if it works with a fresh profile.

    i'm using the 32 bit version, in a 32 bit SUSE 10.3 on a 64 bit
    machine with: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686: en-US; rv:1.9.0.1)
    Gecko/2008070400 SUSE/3.01-1.1 Firefox/3.0.1

    with the add-ons now found at: http://tinyurl.com/5mk5uf

    and i clicked on MANY different links, played videos and etc for over
    10 minutes (looking for the pretty ladies) and had not one second of
    slowdown, pause, slow scroll, or anything strange...at all..solid as
    a rock!!

    but, i HAVE taken the steps outlined in
    http://forums.opensuse.org/applicati...ml#post1859898
    and
    http://forums.opensuse.org/hardware/...ml#post1859931

    and have avoided KDE4 and eye candy desktop effects..

    the only thing that is really bugging me is ( which just started today) firefox will not come down to the task bar it will just close which is really Peeing me off I tried a reboot but it still is doing it when I try to drop FF to task bar it just closes and I lose what ever I am doing on it. the biggest reason I have been useing firefox ( since switching to Linux) is because of the foxmarks I have allot of book marks and firefox is the only browser that I have found that saves them to a site so if I reinst6all ( which I usuallly end up doing every 4-5months) I just load up foxmarks and all of my bookmarks are reinstalled. I have been using Opera which is strange because when ever I used Operas on a MS OS it would totally act up but Opera and Linux Like me lol.
    I am not sure what I am going to do with FF

    strangest thing i ever heard!
    let me ask...well, let me tell you that on the right side of the top
    line (maybe that is called the "Title Bar") in _my_ firefox are three
    symbols....the one on the far right is a box with an X in it...if i
    click that, it kills firefox; the box just to its left is the same
    size but without an X in it...if i click that firefox jumps to full
    screen; then to the left is a smaller box....if i click it firefox
    falls down to the task bar still running, nothing lost..

    are you saying that third, little box is missing on your Title Bar,
    OR that when you click on it it is killing firefox, just like the
    bigger box with the X in it??

    [note: i know you might have a skin/theme/decoration scheme which
    places those three symbols on the left side of the Title Bar, or
    maybe in the middle...or maybe hides all three....or changes what
    each does--if that is the case and you are confused by the symbols or
    what they mean then you need to fiddle with your "window decorations"
    setup some, until what you see makes more sense to you--because i
    assure you that you SHOULD be able to drop a running firefox out of
    sight..]

    I am using Firefox3 and OpenSuSE11 with KDE4. None of the flash players in the repositories worked, all crashed firefox at one time or another.

    The beta of flash10 from adobe works quite well, but only in firefox, and requires installing libcurl3. In addition, the only extension that I have installed is 'User Agent Switcher'. There may be a conflict with some extension, try uninstalling all the extensions and see if that does anything.

    Firefox lockups have been an issue for quite a while. It seems to be mostly somehow Flash related (the lockups seem to almost invariably happen while a Flash app is being displayed) but apparently there may be some connection to Gnome as well as past discussions seem to have shown that KDE users may be less effected than Gnome users.
    Anyway, a Firefox that actually works right has been on my wish list for quite a while.
