Thread: Suse 11.4, Firefox 7.0.1 loads previous page

    Default Suse 11.4, Firefox 7.0.1 loads previous page

    Hi all, it's been "awhile." Have been running Ubuntu, and the new "improved" Unity caused me to return here. I won't be running Unity, thank you very much. Hope you folks are not planning to force it upon us.

    Loaded 11.4 on a new Asus U56E

    A few issues

    1 In Firefox, scrolling up/ down the page with the mouse "in the page" causes random reload of previous page. I BELIEVE using the side scroll bar does not

    I found this thread, don't understand some of it. What/ do I have KVM?

    Mouse wheel scroll up causes previous page in Firefox 7.0.1 Suse 11.4

    2 I'm no Linux expert. How do I probe the wired ethernet device and get it working? Wireless works, unsecured, I have not tried securing it

    3 Anyone have ideas on configuring the software based Fn keys on this laptop? Fn/F2 for toggle wireless, not working. Same for Fn/F9, for toggle touchpad off/ on. I like using an external mouse. Don't believe the speaker volume keys work, either

    Whether that happens to me, depends on which mouse I am using.

    What happens, is that if the mouse has a light touch, then while using the scroll wheel I can accidently push a bit too hard. That pastes the copy buffer (clibboard data) into firefox, and it loads whatever link was in that buffer. Or, if what is in the buffer is bad for a url, it gives me an error message about bad url. If I am in an edit box (such as in this forum), then the middle click instead pastes the buffer content into the text box.

    I'm guessing that is what you are seeing. You can probably train yourself to be more careful in mouse usage. I'm not sure if there is a setting to change how that works.

    Does the page scroll work if you use the integrated touchpad mouse?

    Please open a terminal and copy and paste (with your mouse) the following

    Code:
    /sbin/lspci -nnk > stats.txt
    Now look in your home folder and open the file 'stats.txt'
    And paste contents here SUSE Paste

    Are you using Gnome or KDE?

    Wired eth should just work
    But let me see the output of that text file

    Boy learned a whole bunch just from your post. Hopefully, this is the link to stats.txt:

    SUSE Paste

    I'm using KDE, which is new to me, I had been using Ubuntu/ Gnome

    It's late tonight, I'll play with the touchpad versus the mouse some tomorrow. I've already tried two other mouse(s) no difference. This mouse works just fine on two other machines

    This is not a problem with the physical mouse, read the link I posted on someone else's similar problem. Using an external mouse, which I have been using, and switched with others as well as switching this mouse to other machines. Mouse works fine on other machines.

    I'm wondering if an updated kernel would work
    But that could be too complicated for you, especially if you use a nvidia or ati driver?

    I found a thread in Ubuntu about it [SOLVED] Atheros AR8151 ethernet on Asus P8H67-V - Ubuntu Forums
    Read it all
    It may be an option too.

    Thank you. I found that thread and a couple of related ones. Unfortunately, evidently Atheros has been overtaken by Qualcom, and the link to the download is no longer directly active. I found a couple of other links which require a login to access, have not yet read through it all.

    I'll search around about a kernal update. If I can find detailed destructions, I'll give it a shot. I'm not very "deep" into this install yet, so starting over in case of a FU is not a big deal.
