Thread: xfce firefox blank

    Default xfce firefox blank

    Hi everyone,

    I am experiencing some issues with firefox when using xfce. I started to believe it might be a font issue.

    Firefox simple launches with a blank URL. I can write any address i want but I can not see what I am typing.

    When i launch Firefox from terminal I also have this message:


    davi@linux-m7m5:~> firefox

    It works fine when I use Gnome, but I prefer xfce.

    I am using opensuse leap 42.3 with xfce.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Have you updated your system?
    Run the following in an elevated console
    Code:
    # zypper update
    Reboot, and see if your problem has been resolved.
    If you still see the problem, try force re-installing your Firefox with the following command
    Code:
    # zypper in -f firefox
    If I were to hazard a guess,
    Your system hasn't been updated to apply all current features and fixes, particularly within your XFCE environment.

    The error message would indicate a problem with the default font IMHO.

    What does your ~/.gtkrc-2.0 and/or ~/.config/gtkrc-2.0 contain?

    Agreed,
    Then my next thought was that such a problem might happen if the entire system's packages aren't consistent and other similar problems could be latent in the system which is why I recommended updating the entire system...

    Default Re: xfce firefox blank

    That's odd that zypper couldn't find the firefox package...
    First, check to make sure there isn't a typo somewhere,

    Did you first install Gnome and then XFCE on your system?
    And did you install XFCE using either YaST or zypper?

    Also, pls post the result of the following
    Code:
    zypper se -t pattern sfce
    And the following which lists your repositories
    Code:
    zypper lr -d

    Also, "firefox" should have been found as a fallback.
    Try the following which is the proper package name, note the camel case...
    Code:
    zypper in -f MozillaFirefox

    Nothing to do.
    The package is called "MozillaFirefox".
    But I'm pretty sure that reinstalling it won't fix your problem...

    ~/.gtkrc-2.0


    include "/usr/share/themes/Breeze/gtk-2.0/gtkrc"
    include "/etc/gtk-2.0/gtkrc"
    style "user-font"
    {
    font_name="Noto Sans Regular"
    }
    widget_class "*" style "user-font"
    gtk-font-name="Noto Sans Regular 10"
    ...
    Well, is this font actually installed?
    It should be in the package noto-sans-fonts.
    Maybe try to reinstall that one (with "zypper in -f noto-sans-fonts").

    Does it help if you delete or (better) rename either of the files, or both? (Although, the second one only seems to modify some colors mostly...)

    Also, what does "echo $GTK2_RC_FILES" give you when in XFCE?
    It might "redirect" to some completely different files.

    Well, normally package names have to be exact and are case-sensitive, for installation at least (for a search obviously not ).

    Although, in this case, MozillaFirefox does provide "firefox" as well.
    "sudo zypper in firefox" does actually find it, but says it is already installed of course.
    Maybe that's on purpose (the -f might make it more "strict"), or a bug in libzypp, I don't know.

    But that doesn't matter much here IMHO...

    Default Re: xfce firefox blank

    how did you install Firefox as you're on leap you should be on Firefox ESR and afaik that one does not support webextensions?
    if you are using Quantum from the Mozilla repo you might have mixed packages as Firefox does not come in a single rpm
    could tell us your repo list and where Firefox is from?
    Code:
    zypper lr -d
    zypper se -si mozillafirefox
