Thread: All browsers fail to initialize fully after most recent update of system

  1. #1

    Default All browsers fail to initialize fully after most recent update of system

    OpenSUSE 13.2 KDE and I just installed the newest update of which I was notified automatically. Now none of my browsers fully initialize and I'm left without a way to browse the web on my system. Don't know what to do at this point.

    Thanks!

    Define "fully initialize", what do you mean by that? They don't start?

    You could open a konsole or a gnome-terminal and type; firefox, this should fire up the Firefox browser and if not, it'll dump error messages in the terminal.

    And what are "none of my browsers". Please be specific and not vague. We can not know what browsers you have and what not. We are not clairvoyant.

    They begin to initialize but upon initial page resolution, the programs abend and I am left with a bug reporter program.

    I opened the konsole but am unable to copy and paste the output to this browser on my second windows system. However, I am presented with a Firefox Safe Mode display dialog box with the Start in Safe Mode button check marked but with a second button displaying Refresh Firefox. Once I choose to Start in Safe Mode, the browser initializes with the restore page displayed with the tabs that were open at the time of the abend and I can then choose to either Close or Restore at which point I just choose the Close option and allow the preset pages I have selected to attempt to restore by themselves. It is at this point that Firefox abends fully and the Crash Reporter is displayed.

    Does this suggest anything further to you. And, thanks for the help!

    Normally I would try out a few things such as making sure the system is fully up to date with; zypper ref && zypper up, failing this creating a new user account and seeing if the browsers also crash on that account.

    One important thing is; do you have any 'interesting' repositories added?

    You can copy paste things here by using the susepaste program, you can install it as root with;
    zypper in -y susepaste

    Then you can upload any text file to susepaste with;
    susepaste -e 30 filename

    For example;
    zypper lr > cool.txt
    susepaste -e 30 cool.txt

    -e means it'll retain the paste for 30 minutes and then it'll vanish from susepaste.

    It'll give you a numerical URI which you can give us so we can view the output.

    What was updated? What repos are you using?

    Please run this command in a terminal:

    Code:
    zypper lr --details
    and paste it all here, from initial command prompt, to last command
    prompt, in a single mouse sweep, and please do so inside code tags (the
    '#' button in the forum editor).

    Well, thanks for the quick response. I may, however, need a little more hand holding with your suggestions.

    I think the system is now fully up to date being that I performed the two zypper commands you instructed. I have since closed the Konsole window and don't remember exactly what I saw being that I was having problems with root privileges which I seem to have eliminated with the SUDO command beforehand. I'm sorry to say I'm still learning this opsys and haven't become as adept as I'd like.

    Interesting repositories? Possibly, but I am having problems with the susepaste command. I seem to have gotten it installed but I lack the ability to fully understand its operation, even though you've explained what you did.

    I performed the example commands only to have both complete with a drop to the command line and nothing further. I never saw a numerical URI and I'm not sure the zypper lr command even created the file. Again, sorry for being so dense.

    Carlos,

    Thanks for jumping in here but I'm trying to resolve the susepaste issue presently. Being that I am using a browser on my windows system to communicate, I am having to learn this process before I can communicate effectively with y'all.

    Does;
    zypper lr -d | susepaste

    Work? It should give you an URL to give us, usually something like; "Pasted as: http://susepaste.org/xxxxxx" - we just need the number
