Ubuntu :: Firefox 3.5.7 (ubuntuzilla Upgrade) Does Not Fully Quit / Crashes Firefox
Jan 9, 2010
I recently upgraded (via Ubuntuzilla) to firefox 3.5.7 and now, every single time I close Firefox, the program seems to crash without quitting completely.
First, I receive an error saying that the program will not close and asks me if I want to Force Quite or Wait for it to close on its own. This has been happening ever since I upgraded to Karmic and if I just wait it usually quits fully after a couple seconds.
Now what happens is this: the window still closes, but if I try to reopen Firefox then I get this error stating that Firefox is already open and therefore cannot be opened again. The only way to get back into Firefox is to restart the entire computer. (Incidentally, this is the same problem that occurs whenever I try to Force Quit Firefox)
This now happens every single time I "close" Firefox.
Does anyone know the source of this error? Or a workaround?
After I updated the Ubuntu on my Lenovo S10 netbook from 10.04 to 10.10 Firefox crashes when I try to open it. I tried uninstalling it and installing it again (with the add / remove software function) so I thought I would have a "plug-in free" Firefox - but it still crashes. At the moment I am using Chromium - but I want Firefox back - so what do I do ?
i just upgraded to ubuntu 10.04 from 9.10, and now i can't view any flash video in fullscreen mode (videos, atdhe, etc.). when i click on fullscreen firefox crashes instantly. everything was working fine in 9.10.
i looked around on the forums; i tried to install the flash-aid extension for firefox. it says that my architecture is 32bit, then reinstalls the flash plugin, but that doesn't help; fullscreen still crashes. i also tried to install the 64bit version from adobe's website, but that doesn't help.
i had a look at the mozilla website [url] i tried to preload the libgl.so.1 library as suggested there, but that doesn't help. i wanted to try to disable hardware acceleration in the flash player settings, but i can't even change the settings; when i right-click on settings, the adobe small preferences screen appears but i can't click on anything, nothing works.
that's all on ubuntu 10.04 with firefox 3.6.3 and flash player 10,0,45,2. i also installed the newer 10.1 flashplayer plugin from the adobe website, but firefox still crashes.
I just installed firefox and flash-plugin.The version of firefox is 3.0.10, package is firefox-3.0.10-1.el5.centos.The version of flash-plugin is 10.0.22.87, package is flash-plugin-10.0.22.87-1.el5.rf.But firefox crashes when there is flash in web page, unless disable flash plugin in firefox.
We have a lpr server for printing (not CUPS for compatibility with complicated domain/systems). We configured our linux systems -- RHEL4, RHEL5, and Ubuntu 10.04 -- so that lpr is one of the gtk print possiblities by adding 'gtk-print-backends = "lpr,pdf,file"' to gtkrc. This works great for several gtk-enabled applications like Acrobat Reader (acroread).
However, Firefox 3+ (tested 3.6.3 & 3.0.19) doesn't actually queue any lpr jobs until after quitting the application.
Today I received a pop-up from Ubuntuzilla indicating that version 3.1 of Thunderbird was available. So I started Ubuntuzilla and updated Thunderbird to version 3.1, as I did successfully before with previous version updates. The update proceeded normally, without any error. However, now Thunderbird does start. I get the "Starting Thunderbird" in the bottom status bar for a few seconds, then nothing! I checked with Synaptic Package Manager, but it only indicates version 3.0.4
I am running Ubuntu 10.04, up to date, 32 bits. I tried to open a huge (10.000 x 1.200 pixels approx) Wikipedia image, and everything crashed. Nor Firefox, Gnome or anything else responded from there. Not even ctrl+alt+del, ctrl+alt+backspace, alt+F2, etc. Only the mouse moves, but rather slowly.
This is the image:
I could NOT replicate the problem with Chromium. However, I am not sure if the issue is only firefox since it locks up everything in ubuntu.
Recently my Firefox 5.0 started to crash randomly. This morning, it crashed twice within three minutes. I believe that it crashes mostly during loading something (such as a new tab), but it can also just crash when nothing is being done to it. I can be reading one page of text and it crashes. When it crashes, there is a "Submit a report" thing. When I click Restart Firefox, it doesn't. What I can think of is the use of Flash-aid and the addition of a 4GB bar of RAM. I re-executed Flash-aid because 1080p full-screen was choppy (still is). I don't think it is a Flash problem since with Gnash, Firefox also crashes. The RAM bar is a Lexar 4GB DDR3 SODIMM 1066-1333MHz. All other programs run correctly. I have re-installed Firefox, Firefox-branding and such in Synaptic. Still crashes.
Sometimes, when browsing the internet with FireFox, the entire system freezes. The only thing I can do is moving the mouse pointer,I can't use the Run command or anything else.It usually happens after a stand-by.
Anyway, I installed Ubuntu normally. Whenever I try to run Firefox for the first time, it loads for a bit, then it crashes. Every time. I tried reinstalling it, and the isntallation was fine. I managed to connect properly. But it won't run.
I just updated to Firefox 3.5.8. I experience constant crashes with some websites. Does anyone here have the same problem ? How can I go back to the previous version? System: Karmic Koala on a MacBook 2.1
I just installed Ubuntu 10.04 and, when using Hulu, if I try and enter Fullscreen Mode, Firefox crashes to the desktop. Is this a known bug? Is there a fix for it? Any idea what could be causing it? I'm using fglrx for my integrated ATI card, by the way, but the standard open-source drivers made video choppy, and I had the same problem with Hulu.
The problem is random but reproducible: go to http://www.tvbythenumbers.com/, navigate around for a while, click some links...eventually firefox (3.6.3 on 10.04) will crash. I tried running firefox from the command line, but all it says is 'Segmentation fault' with no details. What can I do to diagnose this?
I think this case is pretty funny, as I have been using xubuntu for a couple of months - without a single crash or freeze. The first time it freezes is when I am looking through the GNU.org art gallery - [URL] - see link to the exact page in the next post. Not only firefox froze. The whole xfce environment + mouse + keyboard froze; with no other way out than making a hard reboot and starting firefox in safe-mode and tjecking off the tab with the gnu gallery art. The graphics on the screen was messed up when it crashed the second time. I'm wondering how firefox would be able to make the whole desktop environment and keyboard input freeze.. I have run the page, 'GNU o Lantern' again, which causes the freeze. The reason why I have posted this under Desktop Environments is that Firefox causes my Desktop Environment to freeze.
Using 11.04 / firefox 5 / chromium 12 whenever i go to 4OD in firefox, i get this dialogue box pop up (see attached) and occasionally the browser crashes. whatever choice i make in the box, the website is sluggish. same sluggishness in chromium, but no pop up box problem only occurs on this website whats happening / how to stop it ?
I don't know what happened, but this happened in openSuSE 11.2 as well. Now when I try to view any media that involves the flash plugin, FireFox crashes. I've reinstalled the flash-plugin multiple times. I've tried downgrading to FireFox 3, but 3.5 always remains. I installed some software last night, but it didn't conflict with anything on my system. Is there some form of bug with the new flash? Is there a functionality time-bomb, that kills itself after a while?
I saw that someone else was having issues with flash freezing FireFox.
Here is some system info: CPU - AMD Athlon 64 3200+ 2GHz Video - ATi 2400HD chipset (MSI RX2400Pro) Audio - Ensoniq PCI card RAM - 2GB DDR1
Most solutions I found were for problems with the Firebug extension (which I don' have) or for problems with fullscreen flash (which is not the case).Firefox 3.6.8, fully updated Lucid 64bit When started from terminal, it sometimes outputs an exception at startup, then nothing, then "Killed" before crashing. As below:
I have a strange problem with my browser(s), even Epiphany....when I go to my music site [URL] then log in, go to my page and click on link to play a song the browser Crashes. It never did this before and I dont know what I could have done to cause this. It only does this on this website. Could it be that they use a Quicktime plugin to play the music? I don't know cause I used to be able to play music on there before. It doesnt do this on my Reverbnation site page, just Icompositions. If I click on the icon to restart browser a box comes up saying "we're sorry"...your browser crashed for no apparent reason.....and offers a choice to either reload the page (that repeatedly crashes) or start new session. It isn't a big deal but this never used to happen before. Could it be some bad code on that website?
