Thread: Firefox isn't working correctly with package search

  1. #1

    Default Firefox isn't working correctly with package search

    Running openSUSE 12.3 and Firefox 20.0

    When I use Firefox to search for a package (for example "gmsh") on the openSUSE website, a list of openSUSE versions is listed (for example openSUSE 12.3) along with a link labeled "Show unstable packages". Nothing happens when I select "Show unstable pakages".

    With Google Chrome, selecting "Show unstable packages" opens a popup menu. But, then selecting "one click install" doesn't work -- a page of text that looks like a command script is displayed.

    I thought I'd try to figure out the problem with Firefox first. Turning off the popup blocker didn't help. Online tests of Flash and Java indicate they are both working and latest available versions installed. What else to try? Has anyone else reported this problem?

    FF 20 on 32 bit openSUSE 11.4 Evergreen shows none of the problems
    you report..

    suggest you use YaST > Security and Users > User and Group Management
    to temporarily add a new TestUser, then log out and log back in as
    the TestUser, is the problem resolved?

    if you post again please mention the desktop environment you are using..

    The page doesn't use Flash nor Java, but JavaScript (which is something completely different to Java). Maybe you have this disabled? (Settings->Content)

    You could also try purging the cache... (Settings->Advanced->Network)

    Btw. it works fine here.

    Thanks! I thought I had checked all of the addins, but I must have missed one because "safe mode" fixed it. I can track it down now.
