Thread: Firefox & Seamonkey crash on opening URLs

  1. #1

    Default Firefox & Seamonkey crash on opening URLs

    I recently had to repair my video driver settings (as seen in this thread: Help! Screwed up my video settings - openSUSE Forums

    Now it's working again, but...whenever I try open some URLs, my browser crashes--whether I'm using Firefox 3.5.3 or Seamonkey 2.0.

    The URl where I know this happens every time* is:

    Roarke, Gail

    (That's my author page. It's a pen name.)

    *The browsers have crashed this way a few times in the last couple of days, but it wasn't util today, when I tried this one repeatedly and it crashed every time, that I realized it was specific to this URL (among others, possibly).

    I can go to the site's main page with no problem. I can open the various catalog pages (by genre, by line, etc.) with problem. I can even go directly to my titles with problem.

    But if I try to access the URL above (or any particular author's page), my browser crashes every time, without fail. Either browser. The screen goes black and then the Suse log-in page comes up. I type in my user password (which I don't ordinarily have to do when I start the computer) and it restarts. And a terminal window opens (for my user account, not root).

    I have no idea why this happening now. It never did before my video driver issues, so I assume they're related somehow. Anyone have any idea how? Or how to fix it?

    Check and see if you have gecko-mediaplayer installed, if you do remove it or switch to the version from RedDwarf
    Index of /repositories/home:/RedDwarf/openSUSE_11.2

    This might be your problem

    Nope. I searched in YAST and it's listed as available but not installed.

    Any other ideas?

    Post the text from there that appears after FF crashes

    I opend the terminal and typed in firefox, hit enter.

    It started another instance of Firefox.

    When I tried to open the URL, the screen went black, I logged in, and it restarted. A _new_ terminal window opened, but it was blank. Not even the line where I typed firefox.

    Gnome or kde

    Do you know if you are using desktop effects? Can you switch it off?

    Look for a file in your hidden user files .xsession-errors

    Can you post it here

    I have no idea what dolphin is.

    I opened Konqueror, found the hidden files and renamed .mozilla to .mozilla-old and started Firefox.

    Tried to open the troublesome URL--it made no difference. Black screen, log-in again, shell terminal opens.

    This url you are having issue with is Your own!?
    Created with M$ front page

    You can't open it in openSUSE 10.3 in FF or SM

    What about Konqueror or opera
