Fedora :: Firefox Hangs Too Often With Other Tasks In The Background?

Apr 14, 2010

Ever since I preupgraded to Fedora 12 Firefox has been behaving annoyingly under certain circumstances. I guess the issue is not specific to Firefox, but just that it is the most obvious example. What happens is that whenever there is another program/process in the background using CPU heavily (burning a DVD, for instance) or doing heavy disk I/O (say, Filelight scanning the root folder) Firefox hangs for a few seconds about twice every minute. If I open System Activity during such hangs the Firefox process will report "disk sleep", as if it was paused by some process management mechanism which is prioritizing the background task. Since I never observed such behaviour under similar circumstances under F11, F10 or F8 I wonder if there could be any OS setting which was changed and triggered this change of behavior. I should mention the computer has a dual-core processor.

Fedora X86/64bit :: Firefox Hangs System

Jul 20, 2010

everything else seems well with my FC13-x86-64 except firefox (3.6.4 and earlier versions too) VERY frequently hangs the whole system. only the mouse still working, keyboard not responding to ctrl-alt-del, ctrl-alt-function or any other key and even num-lock won't turn the led on. system is still remotely accessible through ssh so I can issue a reboot. same thing may have occurred with thunderbird but only once or twice and probably firefox was also running then. no problems so far with google chrome (but I have no flash plugin for that). FC5-x86-32 on my old PC has never had any of these problems.

Fedora :: Flash Hangs Firefox And Shows Nothing

Aug 20, 2011

I have upgraded from Fedora 14 to 15 (both 64 bit) today.

In F14, I had no problems watching flash movies.

After the upgrade, this fails. I have been through [URL] but still no luck.

Yes, I have ndiswrapper installed. Flash is the 32 bit version (64 bit version is still a bit scary to me, it being beta with known bugs). I can see the plugin in firefox. I have NO gnash installed.

Fedora :: FC13 Firefox Hangs System On Downloads?

Jun 2, 2010

Just upgraded from FC11 to 13 a few days ago and came across a wierd problem with firefox. When downloading files thru firefox, Firefox starts consuming more and more memory/cpu cycles until the system hangs. This only happens when downloading thru firefox. Doesnt take too long either. Otherwise everything else works fine.

Fedora :: Flash Objects In Firefox - Hangs For 30 Seconds Or So

Aug 12, 2010

I'm having a few problems with flash objects in Firefox. When I load a page with flash - ..... for example - the flash object is just a grey box and firefox hangs for 30 seconds or so. When firefox finally responds again all that's left of the flash object is a black box. Does anybody know what the problem is? And even better - what I can do to fix it!

For background info - flash was working fine in F12 before I updated to F13. Used the install DVD for F13 to perform the update. I'm running F13 64bit with KDE, Firefox is showing Shockwave Flash in the addons list. Originally installed the flash plugin using the instructions from mjm wired:

[mirandam@charon Download]$ sudo yum install nspluginwrapper.{i686,x86_64} alsa-plugins-pulseaudio.i686
[mirandam@charon Download]$ sudo yum install flash-plugin I've tried removing those packages and reinstalling but no luck.

Slackware :: Firefox 3.5.2 Doesnt Show Background Image Correct

Nov 1, 2009

Im using FF 3.5.2 and Slackware 12.2. On certain web pages, for instance www.slackware.com, Firefox doesnt display the background image, but instead displays multiple images of the tool bar of Firefox. It doesnt matter if I change the settings to allow third part cookies or if I tell Firefox to get images automatically. When using Konqueror, the web-site(s) appear normal.

General :: Automating Administrative Tasks In Fedora 10

Jan 10, 2011

I am a student at DeVry University, newly introduced to Fedora and Linux in general, and have a project whereby, we have been asked to consider some administrative tasks that we could automate via a script.I was wondering if there were any thoughts or directives from the community on what admin tasks you guys find to be of inestimable use in automating via a Linux script.

I am new to the Linux commands but have done a wee bit of programming before in C++ and others.I have also done basic DOS batch files before.

May 8, 2010

My ubuntu 10.04 hangs often when I watch flv videos on firefox. The whole thing just suddenly freezes, with no mouse/keyboard response, no background sound playback, no nothing.

It did so a few times in 9.10, but the upgrade seems to have made it more frequently than before.

Programming :: Mac Hangs On Both Firefox 3 And Safari?

Jan 19, 2010

So I wrote a function in a class that logs the user in:

public function UserLogIn($username,$password){
if (!isset($username) || !isset($password)) {
header(Location: ../dev/index.php);


I've tested it on Linux (Ubuntu and Debian) and it works perfectly on Firefox 3 and Opera 9.5 on those two distributions. On Mac however, it hangs on both Firefox 3 and Safari. I have also tested it on Windows using Internet Explorer 7 and Firefox 3. why it hangs on Mac?

Ubuntu Installation :: Lucid Printing Pale Yellow Background Colour On All Firefox Printouts?

May 24, 2010

Since upgrading to Lucid on two different PCs - one clean install and one upgrade I am experiencing a strange problem when printing from Firefox.Every printout from Firefox has a very pale yellow background on the whole print area.If I print to a pdf file rather than directly to the printer, then print the pdf file the problem does not occur.If I print to a postscript file, then print that the problem is present.No other applications I have tested have this problem (open office, gedit, google chrome)The printer is an HP Business Jet 2200 and I have tried all four offered drivers.

OpenSUSE :: Firefox Hangs Due To Libproxy -> Pxgconf

Oct 11, 2010


i have opensuse 11.3 and i am using gnome.

occasionally my firefox hangs. this is sometimes without any reason i see.
the only times i can nearly reproduce this, is when i directly open a PDF with evince. in this case a dialog-window opens, asking whether to download or open using evince. if i choose opening directly with evince, evince opens normally. however, then i am unable to close the dialog window of firefox witch makes firefox unuseable.

when firefox freezes like this, it has a child process called "pxgconf" open (seen in gnome-system-monitor). if i kill this pxgconf, firefox is usable again.

pxgconf seems to be in /usr/lib/libproxy and thus part of libproxy1-config-gnome-0.4.3-1.3.x86_64 package (i've validated all packages using rpm):

$ rpm -qa | grep libproxy
(i don't know how to show package info with rpm, but the package-manager reports they all all from openSUSE-11.3-Oss)

my repos:

$ zypper lr
# | Alias | Name | Enabled | Refresh
1 | NVIDIA Repository | NVIDIA Repository | Yes | Yes
2 | Packman | Packman | Yes | Yes
3 | Packman2 | Packman2 | No | No
4 | X11:Compiz | X11:Compiz | No | No
5 | lnussel | lnussel | No | No
6 | openSUSE-11.3 11.3-1.82 | openSUSE-11.3 11.3-1.82 | No | No
7 | repo-debug | openSUSE-11.3-Debug | No | No
8 | repo-non-oss | openSUSE-11.3-Non-Oss | Yes | Yes
9 | repo-oss | openSUSE-11.3-Oss | Yes | Yes
10 | repo-source | openSUSE-11.3-Source | No | No
11 | repo-update | openSUSE-11.3-Update | Yes | Yes
12 | vlc | vlc | Yes | Yes
i'm running firefox in thru strace now and directing all output to files, so next freeze hopefully there will be something valuable in there.

any other suggestions?

ps: i've already tested this with a new firefox profile, same result.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Firefox Hangs With Javascripts And Flash?

Mar 14, 2010

i use ubuntu 9.10 64 bit, completely updated. my browser is firefox 3.5.8

mozilla/5.0 (x11; u; linux x86_64; en-us; rv:1.9.1. gecko/20100214 ubuntu/9.10 (karmic) firefox/3.5.8 gtb7.0

i am unable to open pop-up windows linked with java. also the flv videos on videos are often un-responsive or requires several clicks to play.

i have a suspicion this is related to google toolbar or maybe chrome extreme firefox skin?

note: i have reinstalled ubuntu several times and tried both 32-bit and 64-bit, as well as the new 10.04, beta2.

Ubuntu :: Adobe Flashplayer 10 - Firefox Freezes - Hangs For A While ?

Nov 17, 2010

I have a problem with Adobe Flashplayer 10. It seems to be incompatible with a countdown timer on a specific site. I use firefox and when I open the site firefox freezes , hangs for a while and then I get an Adobe flashplayer 10 error stating the script encountered a problem. This is how and know the problem is the adobe flash and I know it is with that countdown timer as it only started when that was added to the site. Obviously it is a compatibility problem as it doesn't hapen on my Windows pc.

My question is two parts: a. Is there another flash player I can try with Firefox and b. If yes How do I uninstall the Adobe Flashplayer and install the other one.

Ubuntu 10.04.1 64 bit with all latest automatic updates , browser is Firefox.

Slackware :: Firefox Hangs After Update - Better Shutdown At Homepage

Jun 15, 2010

12.2 is up to date and am running the Firefox from Slackbuilds. There was an update to FF a few months ago. Since then FF "hangs" when I close it out. It does seem to shut down better from the home page instead of whatever site I happen to be on at the time of shutting down. I do have a few addons to FF but they were there before the update with no issues. The addons are Gmarks [disabled], Rankchecker, Scribefire, SEO for FF [disabled], SEO Toolbar, Weatherbug and Web Developer. I haven't done any "fixes" so I'm fairly certain I didn't create my own problem.

OpenSUSE Install :: Boot Opensuse Under Grub2 With Splash Background And Console Background?

Mar 24, 2010

I originally have Ubuntu Lucid on my machine. I just installed opensuse 11.2 on another partition without bootloader installed. So I'm still using the Ubuntu Lucid default bootloader grub2. I can boot up opensuse correctly. the nagging thing is that there's no splash screen show up during the boot process, instead, lines of command are flashing, the console background is also missing and the font under console (tty1-6) is huge. what can I do to have these back to opensuse? the current entry in grub2 for opensuse

menuentry "openSUSE 11.2 (i586) (on /dev/sda2)" {
insmod ext2
set root='(hd0,2)'
search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set 9ac05ede-e7c4-47f3-b55b-66d5844$
linux /boot/vmlinuz- root=/dev/sda2
initrd /boot/initrd-
which parameters should I add?
