OpenSUSE :: 11.4 Freezes When Running KVM Virtual Machine

Apr 8, 2011

I have 3 boxes running opensuse-11.4 64 bit - Phenom-I 2.6 GHz, Intel Q9400 quad core 2.66 GHz and Intel SU7300 dual core 1.3 GHz (the last one is a laptop). When I run a KVM virtual machine and load it quite a lot all host OS freeze. Interestingly, the laptop works the longest (hours), while the fastest system with Q9400 freezes in max. 10 minutes. After a hard reboot there is nothing in /var/log/messages This bug is 100% reproducible. The guest OS is either RHEL or openSUSE. Is it a 11.4 bug or I am missing something? Have not tried the same hardware with RHEL-6.

OpenSUSE :: 11.3 / Mozilla Firefox Freezes Upon Moving The Mouse

Aug 7, 2010

I installed OpenSUSE 11.3 yesterday. When I begin to use Mozilla Firefox (version automatically installed with OpenSUSE 11.3) the cursor freezes or locks up (when I move the mouse/cursor-pointer), and the only way I can do anything is turn off the computer and start over (to no avail, because it does the same thing within a a minute or so after entering Mozilla Firefox. I did not have this problem with OpenSUSE 11.2.

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.2 Running Slow / Freezes And Icons Disappears

Jul 8, 2010

I'm really new to opensuse, and linux in general. I started using 11.2 in may and I'm still having trouble. I started it on a newly refurbished HP Pavillion. It's always seemed to run slow, freezes up when I plug in my external hard drive, won't play music on amarok or it will lag, things like that. When I run it in windows everything works fine. and it has always ran really hot and loud when in opensuse.

To make things worse, lately if I open mozilla, all the programs/windows I have open will disappear, all my tabs will disappear, all the icons on my desktop disappear and my application launcher, clock, etc, all disappear. when i manually shut it down and restart it works fine for a while. I keep trying to find things online but I've got to the point where I'm afraid to mess it up more.

OpenSUSE :: Firefox Freezes At Sites That Have Flash Content After Suspend?

May 9, 2011

Every time after I resume from suspend, firefox freezes up to 7sec at "flashed" sites.That is very annoying. If I disable the adobe flash plugin, it is smooth without flash. If I restart my laptop, everything goes flawlessly. It did not if I restart the X service.This also affects the chromium on both the smooth scroll and the freezing at flashed sites. Additional information: Opensuse11.4 32-bit KDE.

OpenSUSE Network :: Firefox Freezes When Streaming Divx Videos?

Mar 13, 2010

I'm having problems with streaming divx videos in Firefox 3.6 on openSUSE 11.2. Every time I try to load a divx video Firefox ends up freezing, ultimately leading to dialog box giving me the option to terminate Firefox. No matter what plugin I try to use it's the same problem. I've tried mplayerplug-in, which shows a gray background with the Mplayer logo where the video should be but it keeps buffering, once I press play it freezes. I tried the vlc browser plugin which doesn't seem to even recognize anything and I tried gecko-mplayer, which didn't even show the logo and buffering. I tired removing Firefox and all the plugins and tried installing them again to no avail.

OpenSUSE :: 11.4 And Firefox 4 Running With HW Acceleration?

Mar 12, 2011

I was really looking forward to Firefox 4, especially to trying the hardware acceleration. I'm using nvidia proprietary driver which is the combination which *should* work, according what I've read. However it doesn't. Firefox doesn't even recognize my graphics card, when I type about:support, there is no information about my graphics. So I wonder, is there anyone who got this working?

OpenSUSE :: Can't Run Firefox - Running Directly With Exactly The Same Result

Sep 28, 2010

I'm running 11.3 with KDE. I'm not sure when this happened, but I can no longer run firefox. If I click on the firefox icon, the bouncing icon appears, runs for a minute and then disappears. If I actually type in /usr/bin/firefox, nothing happens, and I get the prompt back in a fraction of a second.

I note that /usr/bin/firefox is a softlink to /usr/lib/firefox/ which apparently runs the _actual_ executable: /usr/lib/firefox/firefox. I tried running that directly with exactly the same result.

I can run firefox normally if logged in as root. I can also run it via /usr/bin/firefox and /usr/lib/firefox/firefox. I tried uninstalling, reinstalling firefox. No change. I'm running 3.10.xxxx and the problem _may_ have started with a recent update to 3.10 , but I can't be certain. I downloaded firefox 4.0 beta and it works, but it doesn't support many addons (like flash), so it's not very useful to me.

Fedora :: Firefox 4 Freezes On 15/Gnome 3?

Jun 16, 2011

Firefox 4 becomes completely unresponsive for about 5 seconds. It seems to be happening mostly but not exclusively when switching tabs. At first I thought the problem was flash related but I was wrong, it happens regardless of the pages contents. Also, the problem seems to be more frequent as more tabs are open.It's interesting that it happens only on my computer at work (Intel Q33) but not at home (NVidia GTX 570). Both computers run Fedora 15 with Gnome 3 (HW accelerated). I also tried starting in fallback mode but the problem remained.

General :: Firefox Freezes For About 10 Seconds At Startup?

Sep 7, 2011

Every time I launch Firefox and go visiting some websites, I notice it freezes for about 10 seconds. Not always in the same websites, but it always happens sometime in the first 2 or 3 minutes of running. I can see the hard disk led is ON all the time the browser is hung.

My operating system is Linux and I don't currently have any extension/plugin installed here.

I have no form completion, no history and have no more than 20-30 bookmarks.

Has somebody noticed something similar, or know how can I debug this to find out what Firefox is doing or trying to do?

Ubuntu :: Firefox Freezes Entire System 9.10?

Jan 1, 2010

I've got an odd problem and was wondering if anyone had any insight. I'm on Ubuntu 9.10 on a Gateway E-100M and everything works great except for firefox. My machine will hard freeze about once a day when using firefox. The whole OS -- no mouse movement, no keyboard response, etc.I've switched to Chrome for weeks and I get no issues at all. I switched back to firefox and it hard froze within the first hour or so. I know it's unusual that an individual program would freeze the whole OS rather than just crash, but it seems to be a fairly consistent pattern.

Ubuntu :: Firefox Freezes When Clicking Menu

Aug 24, 2010

Firefox 3.6.8 is freezing whenever I click a menu item. It locks up for about 25 seconds before continuing. It does this even in safe mode, or if all the addons and extentions are disabled. I have even tried deleting and creating a new profile. Chrome works fine. Also, on another login account, firefox is working fine!

Ubuntu :: Firefox Freezes Entire System?

Sep 23, 2010

When I click certain links, such as the one below, Firefox consistently crashes.

The bigger problem is that when it does, everything grinds to a halt, and I have to press the machine's power button.

Is there a way to kill processes when the system locks up? This is on Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx, using GNOME.

Ubuntu :: Firefox Freezes Whole Operating System?

Sep 27, 2010

I am using Ubuntu Lucid and have a problem with firefox (V 3.6.10). It often causes the whole system to freeze nearly every time I access, sometimes straight away, and sometimes within a few seconds or a few minutes. The whole system becomes unresponsive, with only the mouse being able to move (not click). I haven't seen this problem occur with any other sites. This problem does not seem to occur when I use google chrome, but it does with Konqueror. Control + Alt + F1 is unresponsive, along with every other keyboard stroke or mouse click and the only way I can do anything is to restart the computer with the power button.

Ubuntu :: When Running Laptop On Battery Desktop Freezes

Oct 16, 2010

When I'm running the laptop on battery the desktop freezes. It doesn't matter what program I use, it also happens when I just boot the system login and do nothing. I then have no mouse, no keyboard - so no key combination works. The only thing I can do is turn the laptop off using the power button and turn it back on. Usually the desktop freezes with in 5 min after login, but I also had one case were I was able to work for about 2 hours. When I plug in the power supply everything works fine.

Ubuntu :: MSI Wind U120 Freezes When Running On Battery?

Nov 19, 2010

I have an MSI Wind U120 netbook (Intel Atom N270 1.6GHz processor, 1 GB RAM). I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 Netbook Remix. Ever since upgrading to Ubuntu 10.10 from 10.04, my system has experienced unrecoverable freezes when running on battery. The system reliably freezes when resuming from the suspend or hibernate modes when running on battery. It seems to load back up successfully but then freezes before I get a chance to enter my password. Yesterday and today I also noticed that the system freezes while idle and running on battery! This is even more disconcerting.

I have some experience as a Linux user (including using the terminal & editing configuration files) but not much experience as a Linux system administrator.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Firefox On Karmic Freezes With Hulu?

Apr 9, 2010

i've seen several posts on other forums about problems similar to this but no solutions that apply to me. i've got the latest updates for karmic that i installed this week. i'm using an ibm t60 thinkpad with 01:00.0 vga compatible controller: ati technologies inc m52 [mobility radeon x1300]. i have dual monitors and firefox 3.5.8.

when i attempt to watch a movie on hulu, it appears to work for a brief moment and then freezes and the browser window goes grey. i've left it sitting like that for over 15 minutes and eventually had to force quit it.i'm able to use the gnome desktop effects and have no problems viewing other multimedia, like videos, etc. i'm very new to ubuntu and linux in general. i'm a mac head and still love mac's but have grown very fond of ubuntu in a short amount of time.

Ubuntu :: Uploading Files Completely Freezes FIrefox

Jun 6, 2010

Firefox grays out and doesn't unfreeze until the entire upload is complete.I can't do anything else on the internet while this is happening.This didn't bother me until now, because I need to upload some pretty high quality pictures to Flickr, and it takes about fifteen or twenty minutes to do so.I'd like if the pictures could simply upload in the background while I do other stuff, instead of completely freezing my internet usage in the process.I don't have a problem downloading files quietly in the background not even large files so why can't I upload files without freezing everything up? Is this normal, or is there a fix for this?

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.

General :: XORG Freezes Machine In Firefox Right After Boot

Mar 29, 2010

I'm running Ubuntu Intrepid on a Dell laptop. I turn it off at night.Every morning when I turn it back on and open Firefox, I have to wait while the machine is busy/freezes for maybe a minute. This usually happens twice, but sometimes three times. The processor light is on solid when it does this.I've run TOP from the terminal, and it says it's XORG that's running.

This only happens when Firefox is running, and when I first turn on the laptop after it being turned off for a while. Every morning, when I first run Firefox, XORG takes control of the laptop. Not a big deal, but frustrating and worrisome.
