Thread: Browsers do not work with new 13.1 installation

    Default Browsers do not work with new 13.1 installation

    I recently installed opensuse 13.1 (x86_64) on my desktop dual-boot with Ubuntu 13.1 (AMD Athlon 64 Processor 3700+ with 2.0 gig of memory). I am able to access the internet and download updates but I cannot get firefox or Konqueror to work. Both apps hang while connecting.

    Thanks for any suggestions as to how to fix this.

    Is your user in each system sharing the same home directory? Perhaps the
    Firefox configuration data are not compatible. If that's the case, maybe
    launching with another profile can help:

    Code:
    --------------------
    firefox -P testProfile
    --------------------

    Good luck.

    Firefox and Konqueror are both doing great here. I've had konqueror up for 30 hours without crashing, and that's a pleasant change.

    I get the following response: GLib-CRITICAL '': g_slice_set_config: assertion 'sys_page_size = 0' failed Error: no display specified

    Firefox - Choose User Profile window opens with a default user, but the window is non-responsive to mouse clicks. Running firefox from the Konsole produces the same error msg with the browser hung and non responsive.

    I also have the same problem. Firefox and Thunderbird unusable, running from console gives this message: GLib-CRITICAL **: g_slice_set_config: assertion 'sys_page_size == 0' failed.

    Similar issue found here https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=833117.

    Run across this post https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=1265386. Could be something with my ATI driver. I'll post the result later.

    Removed my ATI proprietary driver (version is 13-4-x86.x86_64) and used default driver, restart Xorg. Now Firefox and Thunderbird running smoothly. This issue seem to come from display driver.

    fglrx 13.4 doesn't work with kernel 3.11.6. How were you even able to install it? (the kernel module fails to compile)
    Or did you still have the 12.3 RPMs installed?

    You need the latest Beta version:
    openSUSE Lizards

    Checked my kernel version, oops, I have the old kernel. My bad.
    I thought the kernel was updated automatically during the update process.

    Anyway, I followed your suggestion to use the latest fglrx beta version. Firefox and Thunderbird is working now. Thank you so much.
    My problem SOLVED now.

    The kernel _is_ updated. But one older kernel is always kept in case there are problems with a kernel update.
    It may be better that on upgrade all kernels from the previous openSUSE version would be removed unconditionally, but that is not done yet. There's a bug report about that, though.
