Thread: Firefox won't restart, opensuse 12.2, kde

    Default Firefox won't restart, opensuse 12.2, kde

    Everytime I exit firefox, I can't restart it. It says fire is running and to shut down the process. One, I can't shut it without displaying to use control-alt-esc. So, I have to reboot opensuse. Need help, thanks.

    So if I run the following command:

    Code:
    rpm --query --all --queryformat '%{NAME}-%{VERSION}-%{RELEASE}-%{ARCH} -> %{VENDOR}\n' *[Ff]irefox*
    I get this:

    Code:
    MozillaFirefox-15.0-2.7.1-x86_64 -> openSUSE
    MozillaFirefox-branding-openSUSE-6.1-1.1.1-x86_64 -> openSUSE
    tracker-miner-firefox-0.14.2-1.1.2-x86_64 -> openSUSE
    What do you get? If you run this command:

    Code:
    rpm --verify --query --all *[Ff]irefox*
    No output is good, meaning no problem found with the installation.

    It is possible to add the following repository: "http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/mozilla/openSUSE_12.2/" and then switch to it in YaST / Software / Software Management, thus replacing all Mozilla installed files for openSUSE 12.2 from their repository. You might also give us the output from your repos with this terminal command:

    Code:
    zypper repos
    Perhaps something wrong will pop out from this stuff.

    How long did you wait for the process to end on it's own? Try counting
    to 10 after closing firefox to see if the previous session ended.

    you can also run

    *****
    ps auxw | grep firefox
    *****

    to see if it is still running and if so you can try

    ************

    killall firefox

    ************

    to try and stop it.

    And this has what to do with "Firefox won't restart"?

    With firefox running, this message. Next message without firefox running.

    Code:
    rpm --query --all --queryformat '%{NAME}-%{VERSION}-%{RELEASE}-%{ARCH} -> %{VENDOR}\n' *[Ff]irefox*
    MozillaFirefox-15.0.1-2.11.1-x86_64 -> openSUSE
    MozillaFirefox-branding-openSUSE-6.1-1.1.1-x86_64 -> openSUSE
    
    rpm --verify --query --all *[Ff]irefox*

    I counted to 10 ten, still happens.

    Code:
    >ps auxw | grep firefox
    user      4303 84.8  4.5 933064 183836 ?       Sl   12:55   0:40 /usr/lib64/firefox/firefox
    user      4433  0.0  0.0   8260   864 pts/1    S+   12:56   0:00 grep --color=auto firefox

    So if counting to 10 makes you feel better, that is good I guess. It looks like you are at least one Firefox update down from me as I see:

    Me: MozillaFirefox-15.0-2.7.1-x86_64 & You: MozillaFirefox-15.0.1-2.11.1-x86_64,

    further your PC is putting a lot of CPU time in at 84.8% while my last reading was only 5.7%. I am not sure why, but why not get the latest version of Firefox and see if that helps? You did not show us your repo setup so far.

    He has the latest Firefox version.

    Firefox 15.0.1 is an update to Firefox 15.0, so you are one Firefox update down.

    Not really, but I am a bit puzzled by that --color=auto firefox result you have. Mine doesn't show that, only the first line you have, then grep firefox.

    Maybe that is what is causing your problem.
