SUSE :: Firefox Wouldn't Restart When Perform Ps In Bash?

Dec 23, 2008

If one re-boots an openSUSE computer with open Firefox, the Firefox restarts when the system restarts. Actually, every application that was open, restarts.However, sometimes, Firefox does not restart.When I perform ps in bash, I see a few Firefox processes do run, but there is no graphical evidence.If I run Firefox explicitly - stll, no graphical evidence.If, however, I kill all Firefox processes, it can now be started normally.Does someone know a reason for such peculiar behavior ?

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.10 Install On USB Hard Drive - Wouldn't Restart

Apr 26, 2011

I downloaded Ubuntu 10.10 onto my external hard drive yesterday for use in an dead laptop. Hard drive on the laptop is dead and has no operating system. Downloaded the iso for 10.10, as well as the Universal USB Installer. Everything went well, and Ubuntu started up and loaded onto the laptop. I was so thrilled to have my old laptop working again! (it's much better than the netbook I'm on right now)

Restarted Ubuntu after creating a partition on my external hard drive, and it wouldn't restart. So, I went back to my netbook and reformatted the hard drive to factory specs, and started the process over again. Now, when I try to boot the old laptop from the hard drive I get a message that says, "Multiple Active Partitions" and it won't boot from the external hard drive.

General :: Perform An E2fsck -y On Only Two Volumes At Restart?

Mar 10, 2011

I want to perform an e2fsck with the y switch (so I dont have to answer yes to every question) on two volumes on a server the next time I restart it. I don't want to do a shutdown -rF because 1) I dont want to check the other volumes and 2) it seems when I do that, the e2fsck doesn't keep restarting itself over and over to fix all the problems. Seems like it runs once, then if it fails it drops you to the repair console in single user mode. I'd rather just have it start the check that will keep repeating over and over right away, because I know it'll take more than one pass.

Fedora :: Bash Scripts To Perform Chores (No Urgency)

Apr 10, 2011

I have a number of bash scripts I wrote to perform chores. Despite that the very first line in all of them is "#!/bin/bash", I have to actually type "bash {scriptname}" to run them. Am I expecting too much and should be happy with this, or what do I need to do to be able to just type the script name to run it? It's no emergency, just makes my brain wonder.

Fedora Installation :: Upgrading To FC12 - Access Port 631 Through Firefox Wouldn't Open

Feb 8, 2010

I only began using Linux with the release of FC8. I've upgraded into every new version (upgrade, no clean installs), after the new versions had been out a while. I struggle with command lines, updates, cups and other very cool tools that are only difficult because they have so many options. I'm Windows guy at work, a system admin and db administrator, plus the company expert on Excel. But, all in all, I hate Windows, and I'm loving Fedora, even if I struggle.

This last upgrade really kicked me in the pants. The first thing I noticed was all of my software sources were gone. I did some research around the forum and tried a few things, but it's still not working. Unfortunately, I may have uninstalled Yum in the process, but not rpm. I've tried to re-install the yum packages, but still no luck.

This morning before leaving for work I noticed that a boot log indicated that cups had failed. I went in to restart the service (through gui) and it said it was running. So I stopped the service and re-started. I tried to access port 631 through Firefox and it wouldn't open. I need to check the firewall to see if it's an open port, but beyond that I don't know.

Now I'm wondering if I should just do a clean install. I haven't done this, mainly because I didn't want to hassle with setting up my printer again (although, it's a Brother and they have the drivers and good instructions), and I didn't want to lose any emails that I've received via Thunderbird. The printer is really a non-issue now, as I'll have to set it up anyway. I have a backup of the /usr folder and all the documents. Question is, if I restore the Thunderbird folder after a clean install, would it bring back my email?

SUSE :: On Restart The Computer Does Not Recognize The CD In Rom Drive?

Feb 1, 2010

Is it possible to have a tri-boot system ? I currently have a dual bootsystem on mydesktop. Win XP & Ubuntu. I want to add SUSE 11.2 but don't know how to go about loading it onto my machine. On restart the computer does not recognize the CD in my rom drive and only asks if I won't to load Windows or Ubuntu. How do I go about adding another OS to my hard drive ? I have an old Gateway with 130Gb hard drive and plenty of unallocated drive space and 512Mb of Ram. I use Windows rarely (almost never but do need it for some applications) and mostly rely on Ubuntu which my wife and I both like and use daily but I want to look at and experience other Linux installations as well

Fedora :: Firefox Does Not Restart?

Jul 14, 2009

1). Since last few days my firefox does not restart. In order to restart, I have to remove .parentlock even when I closed the firefox properly after my previous run

Firefox restarts happily when it crashes, and after two crashes, it apologizes but crashes the third and fourth time :-)

2). The other problem is that it crashes a lot on applets.. I use my school blackboard which uses applets a lot (for different utilities), and it crashes 1 out of 5 times on running an applet. I think it due to the IcedTea and/or Java (TM) plugin 1.6.0_06-b02. I have both plugins enabled in Firefox plugins list.

Ubuntu :: After Crash Can't Restart Firefox / Fix This?

Jan 29, 2010

This has happened multiple times. I'd be running firefox and it would crash for whatever reason. I'd try to restart it and it would tell me that it's "already running as another process."

ps and top show no firefox. killall can't kill it. I found a few forum postings saying to delete the .parentlock file in the firefox directory. That allows me to start it, but all my personalizations and settings are gone. I have to each time create a new profile and copy everything over.

Kubuntu 9.04, all up to date, 2.6.28-13, 64-bit.

Software :: Firefox Will Not Restart After Shutdown?

Apr 21, 2010

A few days ago an upgrade to FF 3.6.3 was pushed at me by Mandriva. I accepted it, of course.

Since then, firefox refuses to restart after a shutdown, and there are no error messages in any log or in the bash window if I try to start it that way.

I tried a couple of times to uninstall/reinstall it, but no joy.

Finally figured out that if I reloaded the .mozilla directory in my home directory from a daily backup, FF would restart.

This suggests that FF 3.6.3 is corrupting something either while it is running or when it shuts down.

It's pretty consistent, and makes it rather hard to use FF. The lack of error messages is making it rather difficult to sort out.

Ubuntu :: Firefox Will Not Restart From The Panel Or A Terminal?

Feb 20, 2010

After some use, firefox will not restart from the panel or a terminal. Looking in '.mozilla/firefox' I find:


lrwxrwxrwx 1 dave dave 15 2010-02-19 20:55 lock ->

The number at the end changes everytime I remove it. Is this something trying to get in or something trying to get out? Or what? This has been going on for a while.

Fedora Installation :: Java Sun - No New Plugin After Firefox Restart

Sep 21, 2009

I 'am trying to install Java on fedora but I 'am stuck a this line on this tutorial [URL]. Use spacebar to read the agreement. At the end type yes to proceed with the installation. To make Firefox use the installed plugin type:
su -c 'yum remove java-*-openjdk-plugin'
su -c 'ln -s /opt/jre1.6.0_14/plugin/i386/ns7/

Restart Firefox and Tools -> Addons -> Plugins. If the plugin was successfully installed you should see Java(TM) Plug-in among the plugins. Now, if you also want to run java programs using Sun's java type in a console:

My shell
[root@shadow ~]# ln -s /opt/jrel.6.0_16/plugin/i386/ns7/
> /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/
You have mail in /var/spool/mail/root
[root@shadow ~]# ln -s /opt/jrel.6.0_16/plugin/i386/ns7/ /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/
ln: creating symbolic link `/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/': File exists
After restart Firefox i don't see any new plugin. ?

Ubuntu :: Firefox Stays Open For Few Seconds And Then Dies And Won't Restart

Sep 2, 2010

I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 and after a recent software update, I found that my web browsers crash constantly. Firefox stays open for a few seconds and then dies and won't restart. Google Chrome keeps giving me the "Aw, Snap!" screen. Seamonkey and Epiphany run for a while and then crash. After some research, I uninstalled Flash, but that didn't change anything.On a possibly related note, I've been informed of disk errors during boot and prompted to fix them twice in the same two week period.

SUSE / Novell :: Bash File Corrupt, And Sh And Init Went Down With It?

May 23, 2010

Yesterday afternoon, I was playing around with updating my system with RPMs from the openSUSE RPM Search. I had bash v 4.0.18 (I'm running a decaboot, the primary OS being openSUSE 11.2, where the issue is) and I installed a package that was bash 1.0.36. I restarted my Yakuake terminal to see the new bash. Immediately, I noticed the Yakuake terminal flashing rapidly, and the terminal wouldn't go down when I used the key that brings up and down, so I controlled-alt-escaped it and killed it off. Then I wondered if it was just me, so I hit ALT-F2 and logged in as root. It quickly said some symbol file (Something)_(Something)_REWRITE(maybe) then disappeared, giving my the login prompt. I though, well, OK maybe I have to restart it to get it to work. Init said "there is no more processes left on this runlevel" and I had to Power-Button it and reboot. When it rebooted, or tried to, I was greeted with "KERNEL-PANIC Tried to kill init"

I panicked with the kernel, and I went into my 11.3 Milestone 4 installation, tried to chroot it, but I received the same error as when I tried to log into root and was returned to my 11.3 session.

I later tried to do a mock update with the 11.2 DVD, and tried with the YaST package manager to downgrade BASH, but the RPM installation failed, even on good DVDs. I tried the rescue, but it said BASH wasn't a "critical file" while things I don't even use were checked (like openssh)

From 11.3, I tried linking sh from bash to ksh (Korne Shell). For all I know, it is just like bash. It didn't work. Same kernel error.

I relinked sh and bash together, and I am using SUSE 11.1 in the meantime, but does anybody know how to fix this without reinstalling my SUSE 11.2 completely.

OpenSUSE :: Installing Firefox 3.6 On Suse 11.1?

Dec 17, 2010

I was using Firefox 3.6 on Suse 11.1, but I have just reinstalled my root partition and now have Firefox 3.0.4. Firefox immediately warned me to install 3.6. I have downloaded a tar.b2, but I have no idea how to install it. Is it possible to do it through Yast? If I need to use Konsole, please can I have instructions and also where I need to put it. I really need to have it installed as I use a plugin which is now not working with Firefox 3.0.4

OpenSUSE :: Firefox Crashes - New Installation Of SuSE 11.3?

Aug 29, 2010

I've installed SuSE 64 11.3 (with updates) as a new installation 4 times because of video driver problems. On the 3rd installation Firefox crashes. I had no difficulties with 11.2 with the same hardware. I followed CAF's suggestion to another user to add it to the repo list and run a zypper install. No difference. I've added no new hardware. I then re-installed SuSE and made no changes to any setting or driver, but again, no Firefox continues to crash.

Nov 20, 2009

Ive got the problem that i get no sound with adobe Flash in Firefox 3.5.4 on my Suse 11.2 What ive done: After Suse 11.2 installation i installed Audiocodecs by using 1 click installation from:

Restricted Formats/11.2 - openSUSE-Community

SUSE / Novell :: Unable To Get PDF In Firefox In OpenSUSE

Jan 6, 2010

I've had this issue since OpenSUSE 10.5 and Firefox 2.x. Now I'm on OpenSUSE 11.2 and Firefox 3.5.6. Here's the issue: I log into various sites to get my bank statements, utility bills, etc. They are all in PDF, and they open up acrobat reader and from there I save the bill as a permanent record. The first one I open opens fine. Subsequent sessions with subsequent providers (banks, whatever) opens up a new window as if to show me the PDF, but no PDF is there. Status on the window shows "done." No error messages. I have to shut firefox down, restart, log in again, and then it downloads fine. It's getting annoying.

SUSE :: Firefox Download Manager Faster Than KTorrent ?

Apr 10, 2010

Friend of mine without broadband asked me to download the latest stable release of Mandriva. I started the download with KTorrent and after about 45 minutes came back to check progress and found that the ETA had gone up to around 10 hours for a 4.3 odd GB .iso. Wow thats a long time., I checked network utilization using the graph is System Monitor and we were running around 80 KB/sec. Paused KTorrent and opened Firefox, telling it to download the .iso from the ,edu site. I was very surprised when network utilization went to around 1000 kb/sec and the time to finish was much less (according to the Firefox download manager I have 13% of the file on hand and time to go is 1 hr 11 minutes). I had always been under the impression that any torrent client would be a lot faster than a straight download.......

The ISP here is Comcast. We pay for 6 mb down and around 2 up and routinely get it. The machine is a core quad with 2 GB of RAM. OS is OpenSuse 11.2-64 bit.

So what gives here. Is the torrent site that much slower than a straight download?? Or or could it be something the ISP is doing with torrent activity? I dont know enough about network protocol to know but I found the time difference and the amount of network utilization very surprising.
