Thread: Firefox 15.0 keeps crashing ...

  1. #1

    Default Firefox 15.0 keeps crashing ...

    Do you guys experience the same issue? It's a new problem.

    Went on the weathernetwork.com, opened a couple pages ... crash.
    Tried to upload a picture on Imageshack ... crash.

    It's just unusable right now.

    I know what you're going to suggest .. but I'm just asking before disabling the extensions one by one.
    In the meantime, I'll have to use chrome under openSUSE, I guess.

    I just updated to it (along with a system update on Tumbleweed) an hour ago. I noticed a more sluggish feel when I had 10 tabs open (I could be wrong but it's my initial impression). And in playing a Youtube video about five minutes in it suddenly restarted the video. I can't be sure if Firefox 15 is the cause this early but I've read people reporting some problems, especially on Windows. 14.0.1 was rock solid stable for me. At one time I had over 125 tabs open (my work and research can get crazy) and the system ran great. I guess we'll see in about 24-48 hours. Supposedly it should be faster for many because it's supposed to help prevent many poorly written extensions from leaking as much memory.

    Yes, I read of it in the mail list. Some have gone back to an older version, and problem solved.
    Others are trying removing some other auxiliary packages.

    I'm using FF 15.0 without issue (so far), but maybe I've been conservative with my extensions.

    I have this issue as well. Constant crashes during normal use on a family member's computer with Firefox. Mine (same version of opensuse and everything) does not have these issues. I think I will have to try testing a fresh profile. For now I have instructed them to use Chromium.

    No problems at all here. I am using 15.0 under opensuse 12.2 RC2. I haven't spent much time on a 12.1 system recently, so I can't judge the stability of 15.0 there.

    No issues. I tried that site too.

    Only I will say that in 12.2 both Firefox and Thunderbird load very slowly (Tested on 3 differnt
    computers and both 32 and 64 bit)

    Suse 12.1 & FF 15.0
    Crashes when closing FF.
    Seems to work ok otherwise but not heavily loaded up.
