General :: Firefox Only Not Having Same Cursor As All X11 Apps / Wm?
Mar 6, 2011
I changed my cursors. However the firefox browser is having the black one.gtk is the theme I choosed.gimp is fine, the theme.I found that kspread is not ok, it does not follows the main choosed x11 theme, all other apps does well the selection of the x11 theme that has been selected.
Running 10.04 very nicely, but I have applied a cursor theme - Comixcursor - which appears fine in my Gnome apps, but does not in my KDE apps, i.e. Amarok, and I get the default cursor. Each time I restart my lappy, I have to go into the KDE System Settings to apply it again.
What I have noticed on several versions of Ubuntu, both 32 and 64 bit (including 9.10, 10.04 b2 and UNR 9.10) is that after the launch of Firefox (including the current 3.6.3 version), I continue to get a spinning cursor for more than 10 seconds after the FF window is present and ready to accept input. Sometimes I get it only when moving the cursor outside the FF window and other times it will be in the window, too. I have even noticed it persist for a short time after quitting FF. I think it's definitely related to FF because I don't see this occur unless FF is launched, not even when another browser (Chromium in this case) is launched. To add to the mystery, I see it in Ubuntu and Mint 8 xfce, but not in Ubuntu-based distros with simpler window managers like Mint 8 fluxbox or CrunchBang 9.04 (openbox). To try to get rid of this, I have tried various FF configuration speedups available from the Net - changes implemented through about:config. These do speed up FF, but they don't get rid of the spinning wheel.As far as I can tell, the spinning wheel has no impact on FF operation - it doesn't stop me from entering a url and accessing it, though perhaps it slows down implementation.
I have got an interesting issue here. After having ubuntu running for awhile I will visit a certain website that maybe running a script or flash or something and then all of a sudden the screen goes blank for a second and then everything comes back except the mouse pointer is no longer visible. I can logout and then back in and the pointer is back. I wasn't going to ask about it but it is getting annoying having to log out and than back in. I am running a ati card with the iopen source ati driver. It is a VisionTek 9250 pci card with 128 mb of ram. I wonder if it is a combo of this, Adobe Flash and Compiz.
I am using Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala with Firefox 3.5.8 and the Synaptic touch pad driver for laptops. The problem occurs no matter if I choose to reinstall Firefox or the driver, a fresh install of Ubuntu 9.10, or a combination of them. As I browse through Firefox, on no certain, but continually occurring occasion my mouse cursor distorts as I hover over links.
The distortion look as if the cursor is rapidly alternating between its normal state and the link hovering state. The thing is, this happens so rapidly it can become distracting and even downright maddening, as it sometimes doesn't click the link. The best term for the oddity is: it freaks out; it goes crazy. This has happened on various themes and preference settings, so it apparently has nothing to do with that. It does not happen anywhere else apart from Firefox, as far as I know. I think this is a generic Ubuntu-Firefox bug, but I have not been able to retrieve a solution.
Clicking on a web link in an application used to open Firefox in the foreground, on top of the calling application in previous versions of Ubuntu (i.e. whatever versions of applications shipped by default).
In Ubuntu 10.04 if I click on a link in an email message then it opens the page within Firefox 3.6.3, but leaves Firefox behind the calling application. I would prefer to have Firefox take the focus and load the web page on top of my email. I have tried the usual fixes (setting browser.tabs.loadDivertedInBackground and disabling the Ubuntu extensions), but I can not make Firefox take the focus. Funnily enough, most of the threads I see refer to preventing Firefox from opening on top.
I downloaded Firefox and Thunderbird from the mozilla site and unpacked them and added the executables to the main menu. When I start either of them, the respective logo jumps up and down below the cursor for more than 10 seconds after the program has finished loading. Is there an easy fix to this small but annoying issue? I run Squeeze with KDE on a Thinkpad R61.
My computer freezes and I am trying to diagnose the issue. When.. Using Devede to convert avi to dvd. (almost always) Using Firefox on pages using macromedia flash or java apps. With multiple windows open using terminal. I am strongly leaning towards this being a HARDWARE issue.
Im running netbook remix on a eeepc 1005ha. It is my only OS and Im loving it except for one obnoxious quirk. It randomly cuts text and randomly pastes it. If there is something in the clipboard, it will usually paste that, but just as often it will cut random text and paste that. The pastes occur when the cursor focus jumps back to the location of the cursor on the screen. I dont know a better way to phrase that, but thats what it is doing. Say... I put the cursor over the word "pastes" in the paragraph above... even though Im typing in this paragraph, the focus will "jump" to the cursors physical locale (the word "pastes") and then paste whatever is in the clipboard. If the cursor is outside of the textbox, the page will jump to the bottom.
This behavior occurs across programs and in any place text can be entered. I can find no rhyme or reason for it... it just... happens. Sometimes even when Im away from my computer, so its not like Im hitting some key on accident. I have loved everything about this ubuntu distro, but this issue is just toany obnoxious. Writing psych papers on this thing is going to be near impossible if I dont get this fixed before I go back to school.
Am running Ubuntu NBR as the sole OS on my Dell Mini 9. Switched over in March to 9.10 NBR. Everything worked fine.Upgraded to 10.04 when it was released. It's awesome EXCEPT for this busy cursor thing.As soon as I log in, all the time my cursor is the spinning wheel of busyness.... It works just as a normal cursor would - my computer also does not seem to be slower due to any operations.If I open an application, the cursor will behave as usual within the window but if I more my cursor to the title bar or switch out of the application, the "busy cursor" resumes.
Some minimized apps no longer appear in the top menu and by that are no longer accessible.For example firefox with the minimize addon or Jungel Disk backup service.How can I reach apps that minimized them self and are not shown in the top menu?
so i have this master sword .cur file in my downloads. i have ubuntu 10.10 and would like the master sword as my cursor it would fit amazingly with the entire zelda theme ive been putting together...walkthrough maybe?
I have a very affordable Linux Alpha 400 2.4. I need to change back to the black regular cursor. What I am getting know is a red cursor that does not let me indent and write, when I do it brings the text under this sentence along with it.
When I take a screenshot in Ubuntu 10.04 (Gnome) using application "Take Screenshot" I get a screenshow this a default mouse cursor, but when i take a screenshot, cursor of mouse was another, for instance, cursor of mouse, which happen when window is resizing. How i can do screenshot with current cursor mouse, but not default
I am working with scientific linux 4 with specification Linux localhost.localdomain 2.6.9-67.EL.cernsmp #1 SMP Wed Nov 21 16:22:33 CET 2007 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux. How can I change my cursor color from black to green in gedit
In a wide family of "ancient" text editors, by pressing ^T you erased from the cursor up to the beginning of the following word. If we use '_' to represent the cursor, the thing was like this:
Code: want to feel _ at home with vim. If I now hold <CNTL> down and press <T>, the result will be Code: want to feel at home with vim. Many times I have consulted and even tried to systematically study vim's man page. Sometimes I consulted it with profit, sometimes not. This is one of the latter.
I just got offshore and was trying to extract csv files with new software and the toughbook went crazy. When i try to boot it up it ends up with the black screen and flashing white x in the middle of the screen.Luckily the company have a back up to do the job but would like to try to resolve it on the rig rather than send it back to Germany
I'm using Ubuntu 10.10 When my cursor hovers over an icon for not more than a second, if that, the folder opens; it's the same with links. I barely have to touch Firefox, and it comes up. I'd like to be able to click on a folder rather than just pass over it. Surely there must be a setting that can be change
I would like to increase the speed of my cursor movement. For example, when I press and hold the left or the right arrow when in terminal or a text editor I would like the cursor to move faster. I have tried kbdrate and xset as suggested here:
I've got a problem with my Arch flashdisk. When I start xorg, my mouse cursor keeps moving left until it reaches the edge of the screen, where it stops. I checked the connector, etc., but it didn't help, so I guess it's software-related.What can be causing the problem?
How do I increase the mouse speed in Ubuntu Linux? Running Gnome 2.30.0. I've already maxed out Pointer Speed Sensitivity in the Mouse Preferences control panel. I am not interested in increasing the Acceleration. Is there a config file I can edit to boost it past what the control panel allows?
I know that this mouse can track faster because it does in Windows.
I've recently got a tablet pc and I've got it nicely set up with Jolicloud - an Ubuntu derivative like Mint - but I can't hide the mouse cursor in Gnome. Now, I've read so much about tips and tricks on how to hide the cursor with terminal, X and gconf tricks in my Googling, but NOTHING works!
How do I do this definitely? Edit: Unclutter is not what I want, nor is changing the root X cursor satisfactory, because it is overridden by whatever toolkit you are using.
