My pc has been freezing lately. It wasn’t hapening before, it’s a recent thing.
The only changes I remember is a kernel update (I don’t think it’s the cause, because I think it started some time after this) and another version of Java for BabasChess with wine. I thought it had something to do with java ( I don’t know anything though).
I was thinking it was a Firefox thing, because it always happens when I’m using Firefox (especially scrolling), but the music stops too.
It takes about 10 or 15 seconds and gets back to normal.
Anyone knows what it could be? I would be glad to have it fixed. It’s quite annoying…
Have you removed beagle indexing. Beagle also comes in FF, you’ll see a little dog icon in the lower right of the window. I always remove beagle including in FF, but you can just disable it. I’m not saying this is the answer, but it might be.
What about your graphics, kernel updates can result in changes there, depending on your hardware.
Does it happen with other browsers, doing the same thing?
It’s possible that a FF extension is doing this in FF. If you find other browsers OK. The next step would be to try a new .mozilla profile by renaming the current one .mozilla_old.
Make an html export of your bookmarks first, it’s much easier to import from that. I would hate it if my FF profile became corrupt because it’s so detailed. I try to only use extension I Need!
But then, it may be something else.
You don’t have to roll back. Lets see what happens without the effects. If the issue clears up without effects, we have a baseline.
You could then experiment by enabling effects again, then take out all effects but 1 and so on, add one at a time, see if it’s any particular effect or just ‘effects’ generally.
Your repos are in good order, which is nice to see. I assume you are not taking updates for Firefox from the Build Service?
I just did something stupid. I enabled the effects again and when I thought about disabled it (to keep testing), well… I did it and it froze right after I closed the config window, while I was trying to maximize FF again. So, I think it wasn’t clear. I’ll keep it disabled for a good time now.
No… not getting any updates. When I see there’s a new FF version out from the web, I install it from Mozilla repo.
I have to sleep now (class tomorrow), but I really want to find this out, so I’ll keep trying without the effects tomorrow to see how it goes and I’ll put the result here.
If it is the effects, I’ll want to see how to fix this, because I really like the effects and it wasn’t happening before.
