Pandora problem

Before an update I could use Pandora from Mozilla Firefox. I’m running OpenSuse 12.3 with Firefox 23.0. Strange how I could use Pandora (without Pithos) while in Firefox before the last update. Using KDE 4.10.5 with Linux kernel 3.7.10-1.16-default. Any ideas?

Thanks,

Jet Driver

Hi
Might be stale cookies? Go to Edit->preferences->Privacy and click on
the ‘remove individual cookies’ search on pandora select them all and
delete.

Good thought, but that was the first item I thought about. No good results. Still unable to use Pandora from Firefox 23.0. Could use it before updates. Can’t think of what could have changed.

Hi
Strange indeed, it works for me logging in via Firefox 23.0 but I also
run pithos (since I’m the packager/maintainer).

Can you create a test user, login and see if it duplicates.

Created test user and received the same message from Pandora saying," Sorry, it’s our fault. Please reload" or something to that effect. No good results. Still unable to use Pandora from Firefox. I receive the same message every time from Pandora. Very strange. I am able to access and use Pandora, with same login, from that dreaded, sub-standard, Neanderthal code named microsoft. Only able to use Pandora from Pithos. I really do not understand why I suddenly lost ability to use Pandora from Firefox.

Hi
A plugin maybe, you haven’t customized anything in about:config?

Concerning plugins, I did install a “hide” plugin to remove the tabs. I had already considered the plugins and disabled the “hide” plugin for testing purposes. After restarting Firefox and retrying Pandora, I was still unable to use Pandora even though the 'hide" plugin was disabled. So, the strange situation continues to exist. Pithos is an interesting desktop app which I am able to use with the KDE interface. However, the question still exists. Why should the Pandora access come to an end after installing the update? Is there a way to install an older version of Firefox for testing? Well, forget that…you are able to use Pandora with Firefox 23.0, so that is not it. Could it be a Flash consideration? After all, Pandora is unusable without Flash. I’m wondering if there may be a problem with Flash? Another question, why would Pithos work and not Firefox>Pandora? I can use Accuradio with Firefox, so why not Pandora? Pandora being the preferred service.

No changes to about:config…

Hi
Well I’m running GNOME, I’ve tried firefox, srware-iron and luakit
browsers and all work fine. So it must be KDE related and system wide
since the same occurs with a test user…

If you look back through /var/log/zypp/history to see what other
updates have been installed since it last worked and maybe identify
something.

From the above it gives version numbers so you can rollback by using
zypper and include the version number, else via YaST on searching for
the rpm and select the version on the versions tab.

Thanks for the support. I will be spending the next few hours studying “rollback”. That type of operation makes me nervous. Expecting some kind of catastrophic event while exploring that area. Never performed such an operation. I can fly an approach in blowing snow better than performing a “rollback” on KDE or the OS.

Hi
Not too bad, for example;


fgrep Firefox history |cut -f1-7 -d "|"

In your case it’s not firefox, but look around at was else was installed around the date you updated your firefox to version 23.

Rollforward is just a zypper ref and zypper up to pull back in…

Thanks for the help. I will try this. Looking forward to the results. A new learning perspective. I will let you know what the findings are from this test.

The results are: “fgrep Firefox history” returned a statement of " fgrep: history: no such file or directory" . However the rollback of Firefox to 22.0 resolved my problem. I can now logon to Pandora, view and hear all features. Pithos was useful, but I no longer rely on the application. Something else, how do I copy and post a command line output to this forum like you have?

Thanks,

Jet Driver

Hi
The history file is down in /var/log/zypp so either cd there or use the
full path :wink:

I just copy paste from a terminal, then add code tags the # in the
wysiwyg editor, or by manually enclosing with C O D E ] and closing
with / C O D E ] I’ve added spaces so don’t space other wise you
could see;


Some text output...
