    Default Mozilla Firefox 3 freezes when loading pages


    Hi,

    After several months, I'm still recovering from my 'upgrade' to
    openSuSE 11.1. At this point, Firefox still freezes when loading pages.
    Once loaded, I can resume scrolling and navigating. I'm not sure if
    this is an openSuSE issue or a Firefox issue.

    So far, I disabled IPv6, toggled-off history collection in Preferences,
    and set browser.cache.disk.enable=false in about:config (from address
    bar).

    Nothing seems to work. Can anyone make any further suggestions?

    Thanks!

    You could backup your bookmarks the re-name the hidden .mozilla folder
    to .mozilla_old

    See if a clean new setup helps, if not you can go back to the old one.

    Thanks. I forgot to mention that I already tried starting with a new
    profile folder. It was the first thing I tried. Furthermore, I've
    reinstalled everything completely, including the profile folder.

    I notice that the update repo is listed as 11.0 in YaST version tab,
    however I have all 11.1 repo web addresses entered. I wonder if it's
    grabbing Firefox out of the old 11.0 repo. Hmmmmm.

    It's not a problem with Firefox itself, but probably related to the size
    of your network buffers. I had the same problem and solved it in the
    following way.

    > Add to the file /etc/sysctl.conf the following lines.
    >
    > # Tweaks for faster broadband...
    > net.core.rmem_default = 524288
    > net.core.rmem_max = 524288
    > net.core.wmem_default = 524288
    > net.core.wmem_max = 524288
    > net.ipv4.tcp_wmem = 4096 87380 2072576
    > net.ipv4.tcp_rmem = 4096 87380 2072576
    > net.ipv4.tcp_mem = 524288 524288 524288
    > net.ipv4.tcp_rfc1337 = 1
    >
    > Once you have changed /etc/sysctl.conf you can commit the changes with
    > the following command as root: sysctl -p.
    >
    > I have found that this negates the necessity to fiddle with
    > tcp_window_scaling.
    >
    > The only thing here that may give rise to problems is the

    > will be in the near future). If you should have problems connecting to a

    > as you have sufficient memory there should be no problem. What this does
    > is increase buffer sizes (any of the lines with "mem" in them).
