Thread: firefox 3.6 dies in 11.3

  1. #1

    Default firefox 3.6 dies in 11.3

    My system upgraded itself to 11.3 - mainly because I was too ignorant to shut off auto refresh. So fine. Firefox announced itself as version 3.6 at the same time. Only now, it just disappears when I run anything graphics intensive in FaceBook, videos anywhere, pictures - when I go back and forth between multiple pictures. Not a happy camper.

    Have you reported it to the beta crew?

    You do know that 11.3 is not stable right?

    No - not reported to beta crew. This ugly thing that happens seems to creep up from time to time - Ubuntu users saw it in the upgrade to 3.5, for example. I've seen all kinds of reports about it - but no firm fixes. It's, like, WTF?

    I installed this system from 11.1 Factory media. I upgraded across the Internet to 11.2. Everything has been, up til now, flawless. But then, I really don't push the system very hard. anyway, the system autoupdated to 11.3. I DIDN'T DO IT. If 11.3 is beta, it shouldn't be somewhere that an 11.2 system is going to see it and grab it.

    zypper lr -d

    You must have the factory repo's set

    Updates to 11.3 do not just happen. Something you did set it up.

    I had 11.1 repos set, and 11.2 updates. There was never anything set for 11.3. I had to set 11.3 updates in order to try to figure out what the heck is going on here. I was hoping there would be a GTK patch that would fix this FF problem - but so far, no luck. BTW - it also blows up in Gnome. FYI

    Oh - and one more thing. SeaMonkey is just fine - and it is another mozilla product. Opera is almost fine - the cursor does some funky stuff in Farmville, for example. If I'm not badly mistaken, these issues surround java applets and/or java based apps. But I'm really just guessing.

    I agree. We need to see the results of

    zypper lr -d

    before we can tell what is going on here. Regardless, we can get you fixed up somehow. There are plenty of members here to help.

    Hi
    For sure, because it sounds almost like the OP is seeing the 11.3
    patterns that are in the 11.2 repos;
    http://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse/2.../msg01351.html
    But that can't be determine until we see the above output from the
    zypper command.

    Note: Initially - line 7 did NOT exist when all this started. I added line 7 and disabled line 3 AFTER I noticed A) the upgrade to 11.3 and B) the problems with FF.

    Your repos are messed up with each other.
    I think you are on 11.1, then what's the purpose of 11.2 repo. It will almost broke your system.

    Secondly for 11.3 you have 5 and 6 number repo enabled which are factory and is used for 11.3 ATM. And that is the reason why you are on 11.3 now.
