Thread: Firefox Crashes

  1. #1

    Default Firefox Crashes

    Hi,

    I installed as an update 23rd November 2013 v13.1 and firefox is unstable - the hard disk activity causes the system to freeze and occasionally the browser - firefox, crashes and i have to restart.

    Chromium is ok - no issues.

    Anyone else had this issue ??

    If not how do is debug the issue - what logs should i be examining ?.

    Thanks and regards,

    Richard.

    When this is about a fresh 13.1 installation, no, this is not a general experience. Else there woould have been here many threads about it.

    A good thing to catch (error)-messages is to not start a program by clicking on an icon, but by starting it from a terminal.

    Hi Henk,

    Thanks - can you provide the command to start by a terminal window - i can then try this.

    Thanks and regards,

    Hi Henk,

    I have located how to recreate the issue - i am switching between Thunderbird and Firefox on the task bar at the bottom- in doing so, the PC hangs - then the GUI responds - hard disk being used when it hangs.

    I do not think it is a swap space issue as i have 2GB and 14% used.

    Definitely a KDE destop issue when switching repeatedly between tasks.

    Any ideas how to debug or trap the errors etc ? Thanks.

    Regards,

    Shadders.

    Hi,

    Just to reiterate - definitely the KDE desktop - switching between tasks - Thunderbird or Firefox crashes - Dolphin is ok.

    What do you mean, that you upgraded to openSUSE 13.1?
    Which type of upgrade? Online upgrade (zypper dup) or offline upgrade
    (DVD)? Or fresh install on top of the old one?
