Thread: Firefox does not start today

  1. #1

    Default Firefox does not start today

    Firefox v44.0.2 will not start today. It worked fine yesterday. (I am using Opera at the moment.)

    One thing I looked at yesterday was adding firefox to AppArmor. I could not figure out how it worked and thought that I had canceled my efforts; perhaps not.

    Code:
    $ firefox &
    [1] 7112
    jmoe:/home/jmoe> /usr/bin/firefox: line 52: /usr/bin/basename: Permission denied
    /usr/bin/firefox: line 73: /usr/bin/file: Permission denied
    /usr/bin/firefox: line 75: /usr/bin/grep: Permission denied
    /usr/bin/firefox: line 139: /usr/lib64/firefox/firefox: Permission denied
    /usr/bin/firefox: line 139: /usr/lib64/firefox/firefox: Success
    [1]+  Exit 126                firefox
    What permission is needed?
    Line 52 is:
    cmdname=`basename $0`
    The other "Permission denied" lines are similar.

    There is no problem using these utilities from the command line. For instance:
    Code:
    $  /usr/bin/basename /usr/bin/firefox
    firefox
    
    $ ll /usr/bin/firefox*
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 27 Feb 19 04:35 /usr/bin/firefox -> ../lib64/firefox/firefox.sh*
    $ ll /usr/lib64/firefox/firefox.sh
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 4.2K Feb 16 11:35 /usr/lib64/firefox/firefox.sh*
    I can start firefox directly:

    Code:
    $ /usr/lib64/firefox/firefox &
    [1] 7769

    Default Re: Firefox does not start today

    from what repo did you install firefox from
    Code:
    zypper se -se firefox
    post your repo list
    Code:
    zypper lr -d
    there was a security update for firefox from the update repo I updated and had no issues.

    There should have been no updates since last Friday (11-Mar-2016). I perform updates once a week.

    Code:
    $ zypper se firefox

    Firefox is up to 45 from the update repo, you probably have an incomplete update
    Code:
    linux:~> zypper se -si firefox
    Loading repository data...
    Reading installed packages...
    
    S | Name                             | Type        | Version   | Arch   | Repository                                      
    --+----------------------------------+-------------+-----------+--------+-------------------------------------------------
    i | Firefox                          | application |           | noarch | Online updates for openSUSE Leap:42.1 (standard)
    i | Firefox                          | application |           | noarch | openSUSE-leap/42.1-0

    i | MozillaFirefox-branding-openSUSE | package     | 40-5.1    | x86_64 | openSUSE-leap/42.1-0                            
    i | mhtml-firefox                    | package     | 0.5-26.2  | noarch | openSUSE-leap/42.1-0
    you also have a couple of 13.2 repo's they might be disabled but you might have some mixed packages, you should remove 2 7 8 9 too as it's not needed after install and then run zypper dup with the 42.1 update repo
    Code:
    sudo zypper rr 2 7 8 9
    sudo zypper dup --from 11 --from 1
    15 will become 11 after you remove 4 bad repo's
    add --from 1 to keep packman working as the update repo has multimedia packages that break packman

    Please do not oversee the fact that he reported that he played with Apparmor.

    I ran a system update. It included that update of Firefox to v45.0. It made no difference.

    I suspect that the toying with AppArmor has cause the problem. Although I have no clue how that may have happened. What should I inspect?

    I've never used apparmor, and strangely enough when I try to launch manage existing profiles apparmor crashes on me lol
    I'd suggest starting apparmor go to manage existing profiles and remove a profile that has Firefox in it
    or if that crashes on you go to Settings -> Configure and toggle the Firefox profile (if it exists)

    I opened AppArmor, found an entry for </usr/lib64/firefox/firefox.sh>. Deleted it.

    Firefox runs normally now.
