Thread: 2 browser problems(1 common with Firefox)

  1. #1

    Default 2 browser problems(1 common with Firefox)

    First of all, I have to say, today is the first day I dove into openSUSE and it certainly blew.me.away. I'm no Linux savant, but for the past 3 months I've had very little trouble getting various distros to run by just googling around and playing with terminals, and with oS all I had to do was look up the repository URLs to get myself up to speed! I've been excited all day about this, haha.

    So now I'm pretty sure I've made a permanent switch (now if only I could get Adobe CS5 to run...) and I'm quite satisfied so far.

    But, there's been 2 nagging issues today. And as you can see, they've kept me up until daylight.

    First, I installed the proprietary ATI drivers (I decided to switch to the open source drivers later, but...I couldn't find the repo anymore >.<) and it's been pretty great. I think. Gecko browsers have issues with unruly black bars, unfortunately.

    So Konqueror and other browser substitutes have managed just fine without these issues. But I can't live without my Firefox add-ons. I'm sorry >.> I thought about importing my bookmarks and stuff from FF but I'm not really in the mood to acclimate to a new browser right now, not while I'm trying to adjust to the new OS finally.

    Anyway, Seamonkey does the same thing. At least, I'm pretty sure it does. I know it's happened once upon starting up the application, BUT I can't open up almost any webpage without the browser crashing instantly and silently. As in, I go to AMO and CRASH! No error messages of any sort. The window just vanishes, more or less, taking its process and tray bar with it.

    I believe the black bars are associated with the drivers, and I'm pretty sure the SM crash is not, but I'll let you experts be the judge of that =D

    Thanks in advance for reading my wall of text >.<

    What does your konsole say, when you start and crash firefox from konsole?

    I assume you mean Seamonkey, as FF doesn't crash.

    Apparently I'm incapable of editing posts as well, so I'll just reply to it for revision's sake. Hope you're using threaded views!

    Anyway, I forgot to mention these things.

    I'm on oS 11.3, KDE 4.4.4 (if I recall correctly), and am using the latest stable builds from Mozilla repo.

    Yes, I've done that. It hasn't helped with Seamonkey; still crashes on almost any pageload aside from the default homepage. Thanks though, I'm gonna be a nubbybutt and try that with a few of my repos to see what happens >.>

    As you can see, I am yet to set my auto-refresh on most of these. And I was lazy in my choosing, so I didn't check for conflicts yet...so be nice, this time, please >.>

    Well the Firefox problem appears to be handled now, thanks to the repo fix.

    Unfortunately Seamonkey just crashes, without bias, on any site but google.

    Not that it matters to SM but you should remove repo 11
    See my guide here: Multi-media and Restricted Format Installation Guide

    You could try a new SM profile
