I’m having fits with Firefox (and Thunderbird) throwing the following error:
(process:13664): GLib-CRITICAL **:g_slice_set_config: assertion 'sys_page_size == 0' failed
The year old bug report at “https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=833117” hadn’t been touched since Nov of last year (though there was some indeterminate activity today)…
The even older bug report (Jul of 2011) at “https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=672671” also still seeing recent, but indeterminate activity.
As I don’t see these mozilla tantrums on the production 12.3 machines, I quickly assumed it’s related to the spanking new 13.1 (but I’m thinking it’s more likely related to some errant package/config). While there’s a bunch of packages on the 13.1 machine, it’s very similarly configured to the 12.3 systems. I’ve gone through the repos/packages to make sure there isn’t some sort of tangle there, but all are correctly set for 13.1, and look to be in good order.
In an attempt to resolve on 13.1, I’ve created a new “Test” user profile/folder, but with the same error. Interestingly, under the new “Test” user account, Firefox opens the browser window, and even renders the entire default opensuse homepage before quickly dying (the new user account probably has less extensions/config to load than the normal user account does).
The next step was to “Switch System Packages” under Yast to use the newer/different MozillaFirefox-26.0-1.2 from “http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/mozilla/openSUSE_13.1”, but with the same results.
I’ve also unsuccessfully tried the removal (with a logout/login) of the qtcurve-gtk2 & qtcurve-kde4 packages (KDE is currently configured to use oxygen and the “oxygen-gtk” for both GTK2 & GTK3).
Also upgraded KDE to Release of 4.12 for 13.1 to no avail. That KDE really is the bees-knees for desktops that have real workflow/work!
The workstation is setup with nVidia’s nvidia-gfxG03-331.38-23.1 drivers, the GL/Compiz, Chromium, and GTK applications all appear to be working fine. I do recall that on initial setup back in early Dec, there was some Xorg/X11 oddities when auto-logging in (KDM/KDE seemed to hang hard just before rendering the desktop), but this was quickly resolved following the install of nVidia’s drivers.
Short of a whole new 13.1 installation (just to replicate!), I’m stumped - any ideas?
Thanks in advance!
