Thread: KDE and Firefox do not play well together

  1. #1

    Default KDE and Firefox do not play well together

    Greetings All,

    I keep running into a problem with KDE crashing when using the search bar in Firefox.

    For some unknown reason, something gets set in the Firefox profile that will cause KDE to crash when a few chars are typed into the search bar in Firefox's upper right corner. When this situation occurs, I can log on to Gnome, and use the search bar with no problem. This is something related to KDE only.

    The temporary solution is to delete my Firefox profile. This fixes the problem initially, but returns after a few weeks of web browsing. Deleting my browser profile every two weeks is NOT much fun!

    Firefox level is 3.6.13. KDE is 4.4.4. Suse is 11.3. I do NOT have Moonlight installed.

    Any suggestions or ideas are appreciated.


    Thanx in advance.


    Rich

    One thing I might suggest to try is to fully update your Mozilla Applications from the following Repository:

    Code:
    http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/mozilla/openSUSE_11.3/
    Add this using YaST / Software Repositories and give it a priority number lower, which is a higher priority, than all of the openSUSE repositories, like using a 90 for instance. Next, run Software Management. In Software Management, using the View Button, switch to the Repository View. On the left, find the Mozilla Repository you added by the name you gave it and select it. On the Mozilla repository file listing window, there is a switch to this repository selection on the top left of that window. Select it and allow all files you have loaded, that exist in the Mozilla repository, to be reloaded in mass. This will ensure that ALL Firefox files have been compiled together to work from the same repository and then report back if this helped.

    Thank You,

    That's only half the command, it should be

    Code:
    zypper addrepo -f http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/mozilla/openSUSE_11.3/ Mozilla

    And if you are too lazy to write full "addrepo" (like me ) - you can also do:
    Code:
    zypper ar -f http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/mozilla/openSUSE_11.3/ Mozilla

    I noticed some time ago that this prioritising didn't work any longer and
    recall having it confirmed in one of these newsgroups that this was so and
    that it was a design feature and not a bug.

    The system I was advised to use was to open a "repositories" tab in
    YAST/Software-management, click on the required repository, and then click
    on "switch system packages . . . ".
